By now most people would have heard of Jack Vidgen but I'm always slow to catch on. I heard my girl playing this little kid's singing on you tube and got absolutely hooked. In this video, he sang Whitney Houston's "I have nothing." on Australia's Got Talent Season 5. He is maybe the same age as my son and let me tell you. I feel quite wrong liking his singing. And he went on to win the talent contest. When Jack sang "I have nothing" it was with such total abandon and possibly injuring his voice. I listened to some of his music he released after he won and he sounded more controlled. No doubt his voice was still good but strangely not as magical anymore.
I'm also listening to this group called One Direction. I know. It's so wrong. I don't know how young the kids in this group are but they look like they should still be in school. I caught their performances on you tube as well. When they performed in The X Factor (a British talent show) they didn't sound good at all. Not surprisingly they did not win the talent show. But they're so cute!
Their singing improved tremendously after losing the talent show. Now they sound more polished and more appealing. It also doesn't hurt they have really nice hair now. Listen to "What makes you beautiful" in the video above and be swept away.
