Guy Sebastian looks set for a career in the US, signing a record deal this week.
The Sydney based singer has signed a deal with a company called Cherry.
"I've just signed a deal so we will see how it goes, literally just two days ago," he told Confidential. "It's exciting."
Sebastian, 31, will soon travel to the US to begin working on his next album.
It is a decade since he won the very first Australian Idol, beating Shannon Noll to the title and instant national stardom.
It's been a good 10 years, he said.
"When I think about how much I've crammed into a decade, I've done seven albums, tonnes of tours, it's been full on," he said.
"We've (he and wife Jules) had a kid (son, Hudson) and gone through heaps of ups and downs. It feels like 10 years, it really does."
Out of all of the Australian Idol alumni, Sebastian has arguably enjoyed the most success here and overseas. The same can be said for original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, who also became a huge international star.
But despite making an impression on the US market with his Lupe Fiasco collaboration, Battle Scars, Sebastian is yet to fully crack the hugely competitive but potentially highly lucrative American charts.
He's also had some success in the US with his songs Who's That Girl (featuring Eve) and Like It Like That. Signing with Cherry could well be his ticket to mainstream success there.
Meanwhile, Sebastian's wife is a stylist and has her own show on MTV called Style Me and was nominated for an ASTRA Award last week.
"Jules is a natural," he said.
"She is really funny, and it was shot really well. I'm a proud hubby, she is a good sort as well."
