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 ...

ok people should stop comparing this poor kid to Justin Bieber. I'm pretty sure that he didn't mean to go this big pretty much overnight and it would be really hard considering he's Not Even A Teenager Yet. To anybody being compared to Justin Bieber would probably be really nervewracking, but Greyson's life must be pretty crazy already, and this just adds pressure. Cut the kid some slack.

i think we're forgetting one thing....GREYSON IS ONLY 12. JUSTIN IS 16. For greyson's age, that's really phenomenal. imagine what four years, and real voice lessons could do for him. he might be awkward now, but that's because he's so young and being chucked into the spotlight. give him a break guys. and when people say he's going to be the next justin bieber, i'm pretty sure that just means he's going to be the next "tween idol", so to speak.

Can't you guys tell he is shaking his hair to get it out of his eyes? Give the kid a break, yeesh.

come on he is cute and talented but there is no way he is going to be the next justin bieber cuz i am a huge justin biber fan he could never pull it off!

come on, i saw him on ellen.he sings great but he's too much smitten with his hair..its actually quite annoying watching him shake his head to have that bieber freaken bangs over his forehead...i dont mean to disparage him but frankly someone should tell him to be comfortable with his own skin instead of copying some freakish hair style and even re enacting the whole bieber sway of the head thing. its so unnatural.
