He was 35.

\r\n\r\nThe network and his family released statements Saturday confirming the Australian-born singer's death.

\r\n\r\nHis family says it appreciated the support streaming in from around the world but said the loss of \"a wonderful husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend\" was devastating.

\r\n\r\nFox called Johns \"an incredible talent\" and a part of the show's family who would be missed.
