With his chart-topping hit song “Mine” and an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best New Artist, Bazzi is enjoying some hard-earned success.

“I tried out for The Voice and I also tried out for America's Got Talent and both them like reached out to me,” Bazzi explains to ABC Radio. “I had like little singing video on YouTube and they were like, ‘Come out for an audition.’”

“I did and I got a callback for both of them actually and, uh, didn't get anything after that. I was so heartbroken. But look at me now!” he laughs.
