'Australia's Got Talent' Winner Debuts New Look Ahead Of 'The Voice'

He was just 14 when he won 'Australia's Got Talent' but the now 22-year-old Jack Vidgen is rocking a whole new look.

Vidgen won 'AGT' back in 2011 and now is looking to conquer another singing competition, with 'The Voice' posting a photo of the 22-year-old in the lead-up to the series' debut.

And he's looking very different to the bright-faced teen he was when he first appeared on our screens.

Vidgen shocked fans at such a young age when he showcased his vocal talents, belting out classics like Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing".

Ahead of his first audition Vidgen told the series his first performance was of "Hallelujah" when he was in year seven. "I don't think anyone thought I could sing at the school because I was very closed-up and I didn't really sing in front of anyone except for my mum," he said.

He received a standing ovation, blowing away the audience and judges and ultimately went on to win the competition -- catapulting him into the industry where he released an album and eventually attempted to break the US market when he was only 16-years-old.

Speaking to 'The Morning Show' in 2017, Vidgen said the experience following 'Australia's Got Talent' was "really full-on" and despite being "an amazing couple of years" he eventually stepped away from the spotlight.

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

In a promo for 'The Voice,' Vidgen added that he felt like he "fell out of love with music" quitting the industry for a few years, marking his upcoming TV appearance the first time he'll appear onstage in more than five years.

Along with his new look, Vidgen's adorably pre-pubescent voice has also gone through an obvious overhaul. While he's still able to absolutely belt out those killer notes, he's also now got a gorgeous soulful base. Check out his cover of Demi Lovato's "Stone Cold" to see what we mean.

Also, you have to give him credit for some of the best selfie captions in the game.

What a king.
