New Zealand's Got Talent competitor Jack Fraser will be joining country singer Jody Direen and Southland duo The Heartleys at this year's ILT Christmas Variety Show at the Civic Theatre on Friday night.

Now in it's 12th year, the Stadium Southland holiday event will have a wide range of talent coming home for Christmas to perform in the annual show.

The stadium's special events coordinator Lucy Blackmore - who will also be performing - said the excitement was building around town.

Besides ''Rockin around the Christmas Tree'',  ''White Christmas'' and ''Santa Baby'', the night would also feature some non-Christmas crowd pleasers like Westlife's ''You Raise Me Up'', backed by the City of Invercargill Caledonian Pipe Band.

''It's going to be quite a treat,'' Ms Blackmore said.

''The great thing about this is that it is for a wide demographic.''

The ILT Christmas Variety Show will be held at the Civic Theatre on Friday night. Performances will be at 5pm and 8pm.
