If anyone in Australia knows what it’s like to make the leap from reality TV to chart-topping success, Reece Mastin does!

After finding fame on ‘X Factor’ last year, the teen heartthrob has enjoyed a string of sold out shows and has a platinum-selling single and album to his name.

So what does the ‘X Factor’ veteran think of the latest reality contest to hit our screens, ‘The Voice Australia’?

“I hear there are some ridiculous singers on it,” he told MTV Australia when we caught up last week.

And does the ‘Shut Up And Kiss Me’ singer have a favourite contestant so far?

“One of my mates is on it, Mahalia Barnes, who’s Jimmy’s daughter,” he added.

“She’s got an incredible voice, so I’m watching out for her!”

‘The Voice Australia’ will soon wrap up its blind audition stage, before judges Joel Madden, Keith Urban, Seal and Delta Goodrem and their teams battle it out for the title.
