REUBEN Koops won the heart of the nation singing emotion- fuelled songs to his wife on Australia's Got Talent.
The man who proved Launceston has talent was last night eliminated from the television show after making it to the final three.
"I'm still very positive, I've still got a lot to go on with," he said.
"It's all exposure ... I'm just shy of 4000 fans on Facebook and I've sold numerous copies of my EP on iTunes."
Koops, 20, said life had been a whirlwind since he first appeared on the program in August.
In the midst of performances, morning television appearances and magazine interviews, Koops wed his high school sweetheart Tanisha.
The couple honeymooned on the Gold Coast.
"She's been really supportive," Koops said.
Mrs Koops was a prominent feature of Koops's performances - so much so that judge and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell warned Koops against alienating his female fanbase.
"She said if you want to be a sex symbol, girls don't want to see you parading your wife," Koops said.
"I'm not trying to be a sex symbol, music for me isn't about that.
"People want to see real stuff, real love."
Koops plans to spend time at his Riverside home writing songs and enjoying life with the new Mrs Koops.
Thanks to the momentum gathered from Australia's Got Talent, Koops said he would work with his band, finish his first album and continue to perform solo.
"Doing this has given me a lot of belief in myself and the drive to keep going with it."
Koops will perform with Simon Meli at Pipers Brook on October 20.
