Former Australia’s Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen has kicked off his comeback to the showbiz world in a big way, attending Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia this week.

The once child star, who was recently announced as a new contestant on The Voice, attended the Justin Cassin show in Sydney on Wednesday night.

Wearing an all-black outfit to the fashion event, he continued to wow fans who remember him as a young boy on AGT back in 2011.

As well as looking almost unrecognisable from from eight years ago, the topic on Jack’s fans’ lips is very much related to just that – his plumper looking pout.

“Why on earth did u get lip fillers?????” wrote one person, while another commented, “Omg you look like a ken doll..why did you alter your face”.

Back in 2017 Jack addressed rumours about his changed appearance, tweeting, “Omg have people heard of a thing called puberty?”

His mother also reportedly shut down cosmetic surgery rumours, writing on Facebook, “Jack has never had even one cosmetic surgery procedure.. he has gone from a little boy to a man.. his looks changed because he grew up! [sic]”.

Jack became a superstar overnight when he won the 2011 season of Australia’s Got Talent at the age of 14.

But over the years the young singer took a step back from the spotlight as he focused on growing up like a normal teenager.

Now 22, he’s back for a second chance at a music career, along with an all-grown-up transformation.

“ANNOUNCING: @jack.vidgen is coming to The Blinds to remind Australia what he’s made of,” read a post on the official The Voice Australia Instagram page on Sunday.

This year’s season of The Voice Australia will feature four big-name coaches, Kelly Rowland, Delta Goodrem, Boy George and Guy Sebastian.

Hosted by Sonia Kruger, the blind auditions will kick off on Sunday May 19 at 7pm on Channel Nine.
