Jack Vidgen was just 14 years old when he won Australia’s Got Talent in 2011.

Now all grown up at 21, you’d be forgiven for not recognising the powerhouse singer.

His recent Instagram posts are peppered with comments from people in disbelief at his evolution - the once-cherubic teen is now a grown man with more than a passing resemblance to fellow singer Anthony Callea:

While many of Jack's fans regularly comment on his 'stunning' photos, others have asked if he had cosmetic work to achieve his flawless look. Jack was moved to squash rumours he’d gone under the knife, tweeting:

“OMG have people heard of a thing called puberty?”

Jack’s mother backed him up, posting 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!”

Jack relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a singing career when he was just 16 - but quickly decided he wasn’t cut out for a career in the music industry.

He instead travelled Europe, worked at a deli and at an aged-care facility, and studied nutritional medicine. But his superstar talent still remains - and his Instagram is peppered with videos showing off his world-class singing voice.

Jack gave an interview to The Morning Show last year, explaining he “wasn’t enjoying’ his music industry life in the US:

“It was a really full-on and amazing couple years, straight after the show.

“I was craving a bit of normality and normal teenage life, so I had a few years off and I really got to experience that. I made a conscious decision to step back and work on myself.

“Looking back, it's quite a blur. I would tell my younger self to sit back and enjoy it.”
