The final knockouts round on The Voice will take place on Sunday, and it’s going to be a big one.

In the few weeks it’s been on TV, the reality show’s had one contestant that’s arguably been the most talked about – Jack Vidgen.

Some say, save the best for last, and that’s exactly what Channel Nine seems to have done for Sunday night’s ratings.

Jack, 22, will be battling it out for a spot after being picked by Guy Sebastian during the blind auditions.

It’s a massive return to the spotlight for the former child star, who previously won Australia’s Got Talent in 2011.

Back then he was only 14, and two years later he decided to flee the country. Jack recently admitted that time away from showbiz was exactly what he needed.

“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

“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 widely-anticipated second chance at a music career took off a few weeks ago when viewers watched his The Voice audition, along with an all-grown-up transformation.
