Introducing Joel Adams: Australia’s answer to Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber rolled into one

Australia has produced more than its share of fitties over the years, not least of all these two hunks.



Gods in human form.

Now Oz has chucked out another hottie with a ridiculous amount of talent (where do they get them from??).

Joel Adams


Joel was only 15 when he shot to fame for the first time in his native Australia. He auditioned for ‘The X Factor’ and the video quickly went viral. It was his first ever performance of any kind. 

He then spent the next few years finishing secondary school and growing his YouTube followers with amazing cover versions such as these:

Now he’s getting ready to make it big on the global stage with his official debut single ‘Please Don’t Go’ which has already racked up over 20 million plays on YouTube. You’re going to ADORE this. It’s something like a cross between Ed Sheeran’s heartfelt lyrics and Justin Bieber’s smooth vocals. Either way, it’s sheer bliss.

We recently hung out with Joel at MP! and played a game of ‘Heads Up’. Check out the video here:

We later put his artistic abilities to the test. See how he managed with the challenges we threw at him.

If you’re now as obsessed with Joel Adams as we are you’ll want to check out his Instagram, featuring dreamy moments of dreaminess such as this.
