2:10 Nodojiman World - Sam Bennett
Long before American Idol and Britain's Got Talent, a Japanese television programme started inviting amateur singers, some from all over the world, to perform to an audience of millions.
There's one catch. You have to be fluent in Japanese. Sam Bennett is a fluent Japanese speaker. The 19-year-old from Nelson sent his audition tapes and he got the call to fly to Toykyo to sing on Nodojiman World. Sam's the first new Zealander to be accepted on the Japanese talent show.
