And then there were 5...

Poetry Idol Grand Final - where the rubber meets the road.

Rounds 3, 4 & 5 were close fought affairs with plenty of drama, humour and a fair amount of paper dart throwing. Several poets came for a second and sometimes third attempt to make the final 5 and the competition was fierce. More photos are below of Rounds 4 & 5 but here is the list of the 5 brave poets who'll step up to the mic this week on August 31st.

Rebecca Reider
Ricky Madibela
Marissa Johnpillai
Tim Wildermoth
Sam Warland

The stakes are raised as the poets must perform twice with 3 poems in each set - so the audience can separate the one-hit-wonders from the true Poetry Idol.

To those who are about to recite, we salute you...
