Jack Vidgen has revealed the truth about one of his standout moments from I’m A Celeb.
Jack and Paulini moved their camp mates to tears last week when they performed a stunning rendition of Amazing Grace.
The performance was also a hit with viewers who took to the show’s Facebook page to pay tribute to the singers.
“Wow, that was gorgeous … the way you guys sang was perfecto,” wrote fan Kary Vega.
“This was phenomenal! I had goosebumps,” added Sarah Jane Sharp.
Speaking to news.com.au the morning after he was “violently” evicted from the show, Jack revealed that the camp mates are typically banned from singing songs on the show due to copyright issues.
“You basically weren’t allowed to sing any commercial songs,” he said. “But we all were anyway.
“We were constantly getting told over the speakers (by producers), ‘Celebrities, don’t sing! Make up your own songs if you have to.’”
So why then were the duo allowed to sing Amazing Grace?
“It was cleared for copyright, so that was perfect,” Jack told news.com.au about the song.
Basically any song that was written before 1925 is in the public domain and is cleared for copyright.
“We were all feeling a bit down and drained of energy and everyone was missing home, so it was a really nice moment to be able to sing something,” Jack told news.com.au about the performance.
I’m A Celeb continues tonight on Channel 10 at 7.30pm
