Jamboree has X-Factor with star Reece Mastin performing

REALITY television star and singer Reece Mastin was the second big pop star to drop by the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree this week to perform before a crowd of more than 12,000 scouts and leaders on Thursday night.

The former X-Factor winner flew in to Hervey Bay on Thursday before heading to Maryborough Showgrounds and spending the afternoon with excited scouts.

Only a day before, pop star and former Australia's Got Talent contestant Tim-o-matic danced and sang his way across the event's main stage to help officially open the jamboree.

The main stage will see comedy on Friday night and a battle of the bands on Saturday night.

Fireworks will close the event on January 12.
