ANY­ONE who says TV shows don’t change peo­ple’s lives had bet­ter have a chat with Jack Vid­gen and Cosentino.

The pair bat­tled it out in the Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent fi­nal less than three months ago and now they have the world knock­ing on their doors.

Vid­gen (be­low, left) pock­eted a cool $250,000 af­ter win­ning the Chan­nel 7 tal­ent show.

The 14-year-old quickly signed a record­ing con­tract with Sony Mu­sic and de­but al­bum Yes I Am has gone gold. That’s just the start of it. Last week Vid­gen headed to Las Ve­gas to ap­pear for three nights in the Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent live show at Cae­sar’s Palace. He is set to per­form in New York, Los An­ge­les and Hous­ton as part of the Aus­tralia Week G’Day USA cel­e­bra­tions in Jan­uary.
