Happy Monday, readers!

Our “Music Monday” pick this week is Australian cutie Jai Waetford.

Hailing Sydney, Australia, Jai Waetford always had a passion for music and writing songs. At age 14, Jai auditioned for the fifth season of The X Factor Australia, where he captured the hearts of the judges and viewers down under. Waetford finished third on the singing competition series, right behind Taylor Henderson and Dani Im. After his time on X Factor, Jai was signed to Sony Music Australia and began making the music he was truly passionate about. Jai went on to release his debut EP featuring the single “Your Eyes” that hit the top 10 on the ARIA chart.

Currently, the 16-year-old is making his way to the United States to share his music with new listeners and show American girls why he is oh so swoon-worthy. His latest single, “Shy” is available on iTunes.

CS4U met up with Jai earlier last month to give you the deets on this up-and-coming heartthrob. In our interview, Jai talks about his experience on The X Factor Austrailia, what it was like recording his new single “Shy” and shooting the music video, and his hidden talents. Make sure to watch the video below!
