Greyson Chance: The Next Justin Bieber?

by at . Comments

Or would the next Lady Gaga be more accurate?

At his school's talent show this week, then-unknown Greyson Chance took to the piano and performed an amazing, dead-on rendition of Gaga's hit "Paparazzi."

Age: 12. Number of YouTube views: 14,669,491.

So who is this new 'tween phenom with a story – and haircut – to rival that of Justin Bieber? For one, he's an Edmond, Okla., resident, songwriter and pianist.

On Thursday, Greyson Chance told Ellen DeGeneres that he's "never taken a voice lesson," though you wouldn't know it. Kid sure has an innate feel for music.

Despite the immediate, and obvious comparisons to Justin Bieber, he cites Gaga as his main influence: "She's probably my number one inspiration," he said.

So moving was his "Paparazzi" cover that Lady Gaga herself called into the Ellen show to congratulate him. "Be focused," she said, and "stay away from girls."

Calling the singer "Miss Gaga" as he blushed, Chance may not have a choice in that regard. Here's his YouTube sensation rendition of the star's #1 song ...

Justin Bieber is good, but he may be a one-hit wonder and with all due respect, he's getting by on his looks and his hair. Greyson Chance is the real deal - he's never had a singing lesson, writes his own songs, plays the piano. I wish them both well, but Greyson has an amazing voice and overall talent - he wins this competition.

SONG PARODY...
PROPER NAZI (sung to the tune of Paparazzi) She covers one eye,
She looks like a spy,
She tortures us all, til we all want to die
From exposure to her Evil. A boy only twelve,
Who worships himself,
Ready for Ellen,
Cannot imagine the Hell he's in,
She's closing in. Giving the Devil its due.
Doing what boys are told to do,
By Lady Gaga and the illuminati. I cannot escape the feeling she's a Nazi,
A proper Nazi,
Sex, drugs, rock n roll,
Lady Gaga kills the soul,
She's a Nazi,
A proper Nazi. She's the girl next door,
Dressed like a whore,
Blood on her lips,
The altar is lit for a sacrifice,
From Oklahoma His own mother drove,
Him to Bohemian Grove,
They ate out his heart,
and they drained all his blood
In a ritual,
It's so habitual Never has a young boy been so willing,
For this kind of killing,
Can't be a mistake, he's a poisonous snake.
