Watch out Bieb, cause somebody's gunning for your spot.
His name is Greyson Chance and he may very well be the next Justin Bieber. This talented 14 year-old posted a video of himself singing Lady Gaga's hit single "Paparazzi" on YouTube.
Greyson was discovered after his video got more than 15 million views and has signed with Interscope Records. He recently appeared at the 2012 People's Choice Awards and is now busy recording songs and being on tour. Here's the video he posted on YouTube when he was twelve:
Greyson Chance has had more success than any 14 year-old could dream of. He has performed at the White House and has made many television appearances including "Good Morning America", "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and has appeared on the Ellen DeGerneres Show eight times.
His debut album, "Hold On To The Night" was released in August 2011 with the hit single "Waiting Outside the Lines", sold over 160 thousand copies and was the #1 physical single in the country for four straight weeks.
Unlike many artists, Greyson writes most of his own music and has recorded with famed producers such as The Matrix (Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears) and Billy Steinberg (Enrique Inglesias, Katherine McPhee, Miranda Cosgrove).
The singles on Greyson's album vary in sound due to the wide array of influences from Cold Play to Bieber. He has even been called "a potential blockbuster of a debut" by Rolling Stone magazine.
Bieber, watch your back.
