Jack Vidgen continues to amaze

FLAWLESS and sensational are some of the words used to describe Australia’s Got Talent contestant Jack Vidgen.

The 14-year-old singer once again showed audiences he has what it takes to be the winner of the show during the first of two finals shows on Tuesday night.

Jack set alight the hearts of viewers, audience members and judges on the show after he sang UK soul diva Adele’s hit song ‘Set Fire to the Rain’.

Judge Kyle Sandilands said he was sure Jack would become the first male diva to ever walk the planet.

Danni Minogue said his voice lifted everyone who heard it.

Since being on the show, Jack’s YouTube clips of his performances have had more than one million hits and media cameras have swarmed his school.

He has even done photo shoots for magazines and been interviewed on shows across the country such as Sunrise.

"I am extremely happy with how far I’ve made it in the competition," Jack said.

"I would have never thought it would blow up this much when I decided to audition."

Jack said he was just so grateful to his fans that had helped support him on his journey so far.

For now Jack said he was just enjoying the competition, something that had definitely been the highlight of his life so far.

"I’m loving every minute of this experience and will be very sad once the show is over.

"Hopefully there are bigger and better things that are going to happen."

The top five acts from Tuesday night’s show to make it into the grand final will be announced on the second finals show next week.

Voting lines for Jack closed at noon yesterday.
