Maybe next year, Austin Mahone.

The young artist, who many have compared to Justin Bieber, didn’t get a chance to take the big stage last night at the MTV Video Music awards, performing instead on the network pre-show.

But like Ariana Grande – another rising star hoping to graduate to the main event in 2014 – Mahone sent a clear message to the music world with a rendition of "What About Love." He’s got next!

Watch Mahone move, groove and sing up a storm now. Does he have what it takes to be the next Bieber?
