Pro Dancer: Scott Cole


Early 2000’s pop princess and Mai FM Day host K’Lee returns to the limelight this year when she joins the cast of Dancing with the Stars NZ 2019… and it only takes basic maths to work out that K’Lee is indeed a triple threat.

The Rotorua-born songstress shot to fame as a 16 year old with her 2001 cover of 1980s Mr Mister ballad Broken Wings. It reached number two in the local charts, and was closely followed by another three hit singles, including the infectious noughties bop 1+1+1 (It ain’t two).

Her musical break propelled her to the top of the charts, becoming the first female kiwi artist to achieve four Top 20 singles off a debut album. What followed was a first-class ticket to life in the fast-lane, including a seven year stint touring and doing gigs across the the US. She has also toured New Zealand with major international stars, including Coolio, Pink and Missy Elliot.

K'Lee, born in Rotorua and raise in West Auckland, returned to her homeland in 2011, and soon after joined hip-hop and RnB radio station Mai FM where she is now their day announcer.

Aside from storming the charts, K’Lee’s other successes include raising her four children, Illiana, Kahuriki, Kaylam and Naila who will no doubt be cheering her on from the DWTS NZ audience.

It's been a while since i've had to pull out 'K'Lee the Pop star' dance moves, but I'm up for the challenge! Life would be boring without a little cha-cha and glitter,” says K’Lee.
