Jack into grand final

JACK Vidgen has made it through to the grand final of Channel 7’s Australia’s Got Talent program.

He didn’t need the help of the judges when the show went to air on Tuesday night as he was named in the top three contestants as voted by the viewers.

Jack is a former Whitsunday resident and former student of Cannonvale State School.

"It feels incredible knowing that Australia has voted me through to the grand final," he said in an email to the Whitsunday Times yesterday.

"I never thought that I would make it this far in the competition.

"I’m thrilled that I am able to have this experience."

"It feels incredible knowing that Australia has voted me through to the grand final," he said in an email to the Whitsunday Times yesterday.

"I never thought that I would make it this far in the competition.

Jack is now in the running to win $250,000 if he wins the series.

Depending on the outcome of the show, Jack said he had plans to make it to the Whitsundays to possibly perform.

"I’m really looking forward to making an album of songs I love," he said.

"Hopefully I will get signed [to a label] and then I can tour and come to the Whitsundays."

Jack joins fellow contestants Instant Bun, Ben Price, Cosentino and David De Vito and five others who will contest the show’s grand final which will air from 7.30pm next Tuesday on Channel 7.

"I’m thrilled that I am able to have this experience."

It may come as no surprise to many that the 14-year-old has made it this far with the judges already describing him as one of the biggest and best acts in Australia.

"The show has changed my life in every way possible," Jack said.

"Not many people get this experience, so I am lapping up everything I learn." Jack has undergone a minor makeover since the start of the competition after a NSW dentist offered him about $6000 worth of dental work for free.

Jack’s dad Steve Vidgen, who still lives in Proserpine, said the changes to his son’s looks hadn’t changed who he was on the inside.

"He looks different to me because I’ve always known Jack the way he was," he said.

"But he’s still got his head screwed on well.
