X Factor New Zealand fans can see runner-up Whenua Patuwai live in Blenheim when he appears as a support act for Stan Walker's World Tour of New Zealand in September.

Patuwai's debut single Something Special was released on iTunes on Friday and will be available in stores from today.

Patuwai, of Christchurch, was a contestant in the New Zealand version of the global television format put on the map by music mogul Simon Cowell. Closely watched by host Dominic Bowden and judges Melanie Blatt, Daniel Bedingfield, Stan Walker and Ruby Frost, it was a close race to the end for Patuwai and fellow finalist and eventual winner Jackie Thomas.

Patuwai will join Stan Walker on an 18-concert tour of the country in September-October, which includes a show at Stadium 2000 in Blenheim on Saturday, September 28.
