Former Australia’s Got Talent star Jack Vidgen looked unrecognizable as he performed for the first time since his “health break”.
Jack catapulted to stardom as a 14-year-old when he won the fifth season of the talent show in 2011.
The singer and TV personality took a break from social media and posted his latest snap on Instagram on August 11.
In his latest post, the star uploaded two pictures: the glamorous look his fans have become accustomed to and a makeup-free selfie with a much shorter haircut.
The singer appeared again on the social media platform and explained his absence.
“Hello my dears!” his post began.
“I was just taking a little mental break and wanted to say hello.
“I’ve been thinking a lot over the last five weeks about what’s important to me and I’m going through a small change in my life.”
“I will also be starting vocal and performance coaching (stay tuned).
“I will continue to share life here, I just needed some distance from social media to refocus on my values and the person I am.

“There will still be glamor (I want to turn one of the bedrooms in my new house into a glamor room!), but there will also be less glamor (like I’m bald right now in the second picture, lol).
“Anyway, the speech is over.
“Thank you as always for the support and love.”
Fans flocked to the comments to offer messages of encouragement and support.
“Here for everything!” wrote one follower.
A second said: “Sending love and I love that you’re getting back into music.
“You are an incredible talent and I can’t wait to hear your voice again.”
Referring to Vidgen’s super short haircut, one fan wrote, “I love the buzz cut…Onwards and upwards dear Jack!”
The singer went viral with his rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing,” racking up millions of views and leaving the judges open-mouthed.
