Greyson Michael Chance - 13 years old - performing Lady GaGa's paparazzi at his middle school concert.

I actually think he did a very good job. The girls in the background of the video were eye f*cking the sh!t out of him, haha.

He was just on the Ellen DeGeneres show a few days ago. The embedded video has over 14 million views, and it was posted less than three weeks ago.

This. Except, ya know, he plays piano so that automatically makes him talented whereas Justin Bieber is not (so the critics say). All in all I'd say I guess he's pretty good but I've seen way better from way younger (to be fair about it). It's cool that he writes his own music though. I also saw him a few days ago; he's all over Facebook. One thing that J. Bieber has that he doesn't is "attitude."

True that, and he has a slightly less girly voice than Bieber.

Seriously though, 6th grade, is what, 12?

My synopsis:

This was successful because:

- He looks younger than actually is.
- He covered a very popular song.

However, he won't take off like Bieber. He doesn't have that "OMG HE'S SSOOO HOTT!!" appeal like Bieber, and he doesn't sing pop songs, rather, he sings and plays Piano.

He's 13. Does he look more like he's 12 to you? He looks his age.

So did Bieber.

(No homo) but he is good looking and has the Justin Bieber haircut. Greyson is only 13, Bieber is 16, which means that Greyson can certainly catch up to Bieber in hotness in three years. Also, did you see the girls in the video? They loved him.

and he doesn't sing pop songs, rather, he sings and plays Piano.

"Paparazzi" is a pop song. Playing piano is just an extra skill.

I thought he was in 6th grade, which meant 12 at the oldest. Also, he isn't that tall, and still has a baby-ish face.

Your point?

Yeah, but I don't think Greyson will be around for 3 years. Unless he capitalises fast, he'll fade into the distance.

Lol, look at his Youtube videos. He plays Piano and sings. he's more Elton John than Lady gaga

He was performing in a concert for sixth graders. That means that children from other grades from that middle could have performed. You also assume he hasn't stayed back. And most sources either say Chance is 12 or 13. But can you really tell? No.

You were trying to differentiate Chance from Bieber. I refuted that.

Maybe. He'll still have some big success for a year or two.

So? Elton John is successful, is he not?

I guess not, but I'm willign to bet on 12.

Sure, probably.

Yes, but Elton John =/= Justin Bieber, besides the fact they but take it up the *ss.

He just got signed by InterScope Records, Lady GaGa's record label. Lady GaGa also helped land him the gig. Greyson's rep is Madonna's manager.

He sounds too much like GaGa - very unoriginal. It's nothing new.

Uh what? Did you even listen to the cover by Chance? His version sounds completely and utterly different than GaGa's.
