Jack Vidgen 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.
Many followers of the Channel Nine talent show instantly recognised Jack, but couldn’t ignore the fact that he looked very different.
Some even wondered if the 20-something star had dabbled in some cosmetic work to change up his look.
“Yikes… the lips?!” wrote one person, while another penned, “Omg his lips”.
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]”.
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.
