The simple concept was from Aucklanders Bill Toepfer and Jonathan Dowling. Toepfer, who was originally from Chicago and was working at TVNZ as an editor, was inspired by the events at his daughter's birthday party. He told NZ on Screen: “I had hired a band called The Paua Fritters to play for the party, and the girls ended up pushing the band out of the way, grabbing the mic and singing Spice Girls songs. I thought 'oh my god, what’s happening to the music industry? Can anyone be a pop star now?'”
