What looks like Justin Bieber, sounds like Lady Gaga and plays piano like a sixth-grade virtuoso? This guy! The viral Venus Flytrap that is The Daily What snagged this stunning video of a young Biebz-look-alike/Gaga-sound-alike jamming a 'Paparazzi' cover Tuesday morning. We spent our day watching the clip, like, 95 times.
Whether it's the soulful, way-too-mature-for-a-kid-this-old vocals, the hairdo (how'd he get it so Bieber-y?!) or the effortless confidence – maybe all three -- this clip is a classic. Meet the artist known as Greyson Michael Chance:
Wow, huh? PopEater commends this grade-school genius for putting a unique spin on the oft-covered music de Gaga.
Young Greyson-san's 'Paparazzi' cover has netted him over 1.5 million hits thus far – which is a few more views than the two original home video jams hosted on his YouTube channel. Here's the bio from his page -- Greyson97, leading us to believe he was born in '97 and is around 12:
I am very inspired by Lady Gaga and Augustana. Lady Gaga is a freak but she has so much talent and her style of music is what I would like mine to be when I'm older. Augustana is one of the most underrated bands I think ever to step the planet. They have so much talent it is not funny. They have such a good concept with folk and rock. It is very sad that they are so unknown.
Greyson undeniable awesomeness has already inspired a Facebook fan page, which currently has over 5,200 devotees screaming "WOW!" and "Sooooo Cool!" in unison.
Further proof he's a phenom? Ellen DeGeneres has booked Greyson to stop by her talk show this Thursday.
Here's hoping for more from Greyson...soon.
Hear the songs:
He's got a wicked vocal ability, but I don't like the way he sings. It's just not "him", it seems to me that he's trying too hard to copy Lady GaGa. Hopefully he will sort that out soon though. Good luck to him.
