The 23-year-old performed on stage on Sunday night on the Gold Coast to battle it out for the prize of representing Australia in the Eurovision on May.

He battled Australian singer Montaigne.

People took to twitter to fiercely defend the Australia’s Got Talent star from the onslaught of bullying, with one fan writing: “WTF is wrong with people? Jack Vidgen has emotions like the rest of us. The haters on here ought to be ashamed. Find something productive to do instead.” 

“Why did I see someone asking why Jack Vidgen wore makeup like a girl? It’s 2020 people,” another person wrote. 

Others called Jack’s performance ‘Eurovidgen’ and questioned why the singer was copping so much flak online. 

That didn’t stop people from writing nasty things online after Jack’s performance. 

“Jack vidgen was just so bad i laughed out loud - dear god make it stop!!,” one person wrote. 

“Jack Vidgen sounds like me singing along to Mariah after a white wine,” another added. 

Montaigne was crowned winner after going against 10 other Aussie acts, including pop icon Vanessa Amorosi, Australian Idol powerhouse Casey Donovan and Australia's Got Talent winner Jack Vidgen.
