Series Nine - Episode 6

Kimbra first came to our attention late last year and we knew immediately that she was one to watch, so when we started to book artists for this series she was very near the top of the list. Who to put her with was going to be fun and we started making a list of likely candidates and checking their availability. As we got closer to the record date of 16/8, Gotye's song "Somebody That I Used To Know", featuring Kimbra, started to become a massive hit so we naturally tried to get Wally but just couldn't make the dates work. We'd also been listening to Ben Salter and trying to find a place for him on the show as Brian and Julia had worked with him during their Queensland Country Comfort shows earlier in the year. Chance and fate ensured that the stars aligned and Ben and Kimbra were confirmed. The choice of the Supergrass song Moving as the duet was Kimbra's and the resulting performance is one of the highlights of the series.

  1. Great choice of song for the duet.
    And they did a great version of it as well.
