EntertainmentGuy Sebastian's stark warning to Voice star
The Voice 2019: Why Jack Vidgen keeps 'bursting into tears randomly'
When it was first revealed that Jack Vidgen would be appearing on the current season of The Voice Australia, the singer knew the reaction to the news could go either way. But the 22-year-old tells 9Honey Celebrity that following his four chair-turning Blind Audition of Adele's 'Hello,' which has been viewed over a million times on YouTube, he keeps "bursting into tears randomly" because he has experienced "so much overwhelming love and kindness and positivity". "It's honestly been so crazy. I had no idea what to expect," he says of the reaction to his performance. "It's just been so amazing. Everyone's comments have been so lovely.
It's no secret Australia's Got Talent-winner-turned-Voice-contestant Jack Vidgen struggled in the years following his big victory.
And for The Voice coach Guy Sebastian, there was a lingering fear that one of this year's talented young stars-in-the-making could be set to face the same tough times.
Jordan Anthony, who at just 14 years old is The Voice's youngest ever competitor, pulled off an impressive rendition of The Greatest Show's This Is Me on Tuesday night, leading Boy George to dub him this season's likely winner.
The Voice fans outraged as Chriddy Black gets the boot
In an emotional episode of The Voice, Chriddy Black and Jack Vidgen battled it out but when coach Guy Sebastian picked the AGT star, fans were outraged. With the standard of talent at an all-time high on The Voice, the coaches are faced with some tough choices on who to take through to the next round and who to leave behind. But it was Guy Sebastian's decision on Monday night's episode that left fans outraged. Fan favourite Chriddy Black had been pitted against former Australia's Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen and both men had to dig deep to pull off an emotional performance of Say Something in a heated Battle round.
But although Jordan was labelled as the one-to-watch thanks to his out-of-this-world talent, Guy seemed to be feeling a terrifying sense of déjà vu.
Jack Vidgen, who won AGT in 2011, is part of Team Guy, and throughout their mentoring sessions this week, the now 22-year-old spoke candidly about how tough it has been to deal with the Australian public continually commenting on his changing appearance.
"I think at first I questioned why people need to say something," Jack told Guy during a one-on-one chat.
"They fell in love with me as that 14-year-old boy and they feel they need to hang on to that. I'm the same person, I've just grown. I wanna bring that with me."
The Voice 2019: The truth about those Jack Vidgen and Sheldon Riley dating rumours
At a glance, Jack Vidgen and Sheldon Riley have a lot in common. .
And those words appeared to be weighing on Guy's mind following Jordan's performance as the Before I Go singer issued a stark warning.
"Your voice is just breathtaking. But the thing is, right, we just saw Jack and he was your age when he started and your voice is going to start to change and it's going to go through all sorts of stuff," Guy said.
"Probably for a long time, you've got a lot of people who are like heaping praise upon you so I just want to be the coach who says to you, whatever happens out of this, there's no expectations, you're never going to be a failure. "
Guy advised Jordan that it's okay to take it slow when it comes to achieving his music career goals.
"Take your time with this because winning a show like this doesn't necessarily mean that suddenly you're going to be on the charts," Guy added.

When Bella started coughing up blood it was too late to save her.
"There's a lot that goes into being an artist and I think this is going to take time for you to discover your voice and discover the artist that you're going to be. I think what I would hate to see is you coming through this and then feeling like a failure because you're not, you're going to end up being where you're supposed to be and I believe in you."
And with Jack previously admitting he hit rock bottom after being crowned winner of similarly huge talent show, those words from Guy are probably some sage advice!
