Jack Vidgen is preparing to make another return at the spotlight—this time taking his musical prowess stateside after a stint on The Voice earlier this year.
The 22-year-old is now set to make an appearance on America’s Got Talent: The Champions, a version geared towards past winners of the series’ international offshoots.
Jack made the announcement on Instagram on Wednesday, revealing he would be taking to screens from early next year.
“Surprise. America’s Got Talent: The Champions. Starts Jan 6th on @nbc,” he wrote.
The star, who won the Australian version of the show in 2011, will be joined by three other Aussies in the remake: cabaret performer Hans, seven-year-old comedian JJ Pantano, and strongman Eddie Williams.
Third time’s a charm
Earlier this year, Jack returned to Australia’s psyche following his show-stopping blind audition on The Voice.
At the time the star opened up about his absence from the spotlight, which began when two years after he took home the AGT crown.
“Everything blew up so much I was just like, ‘I need to get out of here, I’m going to LA’, and that was that,” he told news.com.au at the time.
“I was 16, I left everyone behind me and I isolated myself in a way, I kind of cut people out of my life. I blocked out my family, I blocked out my friends.”
“I was in this little bubble in LA and I think it was the only thing I really felt control over at that point.”
His return came as part of The Voice’s all-star series, which saw past talent show contestants return to the reality television circuit for a second shot at fame.
