Australia's Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen has apparently quit high school to focus on his singing career. The aim -- to be the next Justin Bieber.
Jack dropped out of his year 9 class at Balgowlah Boys High in Sydney's northern beaches, opting for distance education while he records his first album.
"This is what I love to do, this is what I'm doing -- I am achieving my goals," he told The Sunday Telegraph.
Jack, who won Australia's Got Talent
last week, has already scored a record deal and released his first single 'Yes I Am'.Click here to listen to 'Yes I Am'
His debut album is expected to be rush-released on August 19.
Jack says he is sad to leave his school and will keep going back to visit them.
Vidgen also has to be careful who he trusts now, after scoring $250,000 in prize money from the talent show.
"I have to pick and choose who my real friends are and who actually likes me for me, not the $250,000."
Do you think the fame will go to Jack's head?
