Last chance to vote for Jack
"I’M GOING to make it alright."
These were the lyrics 14-year-old Jack Vidgen sang on Tuesday night’s Australia’s Got Talent grand final show.
Audience members and viewers were prepared to be impressed once again by young Jack who surprised them by singing a song he had written himself titled ‘Yes I Am’.
Judge Dannii Minogue said Jack was the show’s biggest risk taker because he had chosen to sing his own song for his final performance on the show.
"Some people definitely have a gift, you have it."
Judge Kyle Sandilands said Jack was a charming and well-mannered kid.
Host Grant Denyer said the singer had a voice beyond his age.
The winner of Australia’s Got Talent 2011 will be crowned on next week’s final show.
Jack is a hot contender to take out the title and he has become the most talked about teenager in the country after first appearing on the talent show back in May.
His singing abilities were recognised when he was aged just seven as a student at Cannonvale State School.
He now lives with his mother in Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches.
"If I win the competition I would love to help pay the bills for mum," Jack said on last night’s show.
His father Steve Vidgen of Proserpine flew to Melbourne last weekend for the recording of the grand final show.
"I’m very proud of how well he [Jack] has done," he said.
"I’m excited to see how he goes next week."
Jack is up against The Old Fella, Timomatic, Benchmark, Liam Burrows, Instant Bun, Cosentino, Ben Price, David de Vito and the Bandit.
Viewers have until noon tomorrow, Friday, July 29 to vote.
