Jack Vidgen (b. January 17, 1997) is an Australian blue-eyed-soul singer from Mona Vale, Sydney. Though he had been performing in public from a very young age, his eventual fame stemmed from a powerful, properly [[MelismaticVocals melismatic]] rendition of WhitneyHouston's "I Have Nothing" in the fifth season of ''Australia's Got Talent'', which aired during 2011. His performance of the song gained in excess of 4.5 million hits on Website/YouTube and resulted in him being featured many times in Perez Hilton's blog. Through this twist of fate, many speculated that Vidgen was Australia's answer to both Susan Boyle and Music/JustinBieber.

A few performances of songs by artists such as {{Adele}} and Jennifer Hudson later, Vidgen won the grand final that season, amassing a total of $250,000 prize money. He also signed a record contract with Sony Music Australia and released two albums, ''Yes I Am'' and ''Inspire''. ''Yes I Am'' peaked inside of the top 5 in the ARIA Albums chart and was certified Gold, where ''Inspire'' peaked at number 23 and has recived no certifications as yet.
