FROM loungeroom groover to risng pop sensation, Port Macquarie vocalist Scott Cain is living it up at Pop Central as one of seven finalists in the Seven Network's Popstars series.
The 20-year-old music writer this week faces his toughest challenge since auditioning for the series last year.
Scott, who has remained decidedly up-beat throughout the process, will need to win the hearts of Popstars viewers as each week one of the finalists is voted off the show.
Viewers will determine who stays and who goes from Pop Central.
His destiny is in your hands.
Scott now lives in Perth, but before heading off to Sydney to mingle with the other young Popstars hopefuls he relished the comforts of home one last time.
Back in Port Macquarie, Scott caught up with friends and family, including mum Dawn, for one week before bunking up at the secret location, Pop Central.
The champion skateboarder was school captain at Port Macquarie Primary School before completing his year 10 certificate at Port Macquarie High School.
He made his mark on the local music scene at a young age. He was named best vocalist as the lead singer in Funkapation in the 2000 Hastings Valley Battle of the Bands.
With the music world crying out for fresh talent and, with his energetic style and unique character, Scott took a chance and auditioned for Popstars.
After making it through to the top seven, it seems Scott is well on his way to following his dream as a singer-songwriter.
Mum Dawn Cain said that, since he was very young, as well as writing songs Scott was quite fond of singing lessons with his grandmother.
Scott's cousin and friends are convinced he is destined for great things.
"He was a legend in his own loungeroom when he was a boy," Dawn laughed.
