The Re­gent on Broad­way show­cased Manawatu¯ tal­ent on Satur­day night in the Melody’s New World En­ter­tain Us tal­ent show.

Nine acts of singers, dancers and gym­nasts Zero Grav­ity wowed the au­di­ence, who showed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion with loud ap­proval.

Dancing duo Kaea and Diego en­ter­tained with a high-pow­ered dance that raised the au­di­ence ap­plause and also won the judges’ unan­i­mous de­ci­sion as win­ners of the first prize, a $2000 cheque from Melody’s New World.

The duo was named in the top three acts along­side 12-year-old solo singer Olivia Robin­son and Dean McKerra’s Lit­tle Ladies Hip Hop dancers who re­turned to the stage later to show their tal­ents.

Kaea and Diego added to their per­for­mance with a the­atri­cal and dance piece of Where’s Wally, which clinched the top spot.

Olivia and the Lit­tle Ladies each won $100 from Melody’s New World.

New World’s con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment man­ager Mor­gan Melody said the re­tailer loved be­ing a part of En­ter­tain Us.

“It was such a fun evening and the acts were in­cred­i­ble and very en­gag­ing.

“Melody’s has been part of the Manawatu¯ com­mu­nity for 45 years now and we have grown with the re­gion.

“We love the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port lo­cal tal­ent and En­ter­tain Us gave us a chance to sup­port a large range of eth­nic­i­ties and ages.

“Be­ing an ac­tive part of the com­mu­nity is one of the many things we are proud of at Melody’s.

“We were so im­pressed with the level of tal­ent on stage and the whole evening flowed so well.”
