Greyson Chance Signs Record Deal?

Greyson Chance is the latest YouTube phenomenon to score a record deal. At just 12-years-old!

The big-voiced sixth grader, who has attracted nearly 14 million views on YouTube with his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi,” has reportedly signed with Interscope Records but no confirmation from the label has been made. (Greyson has taken piano lessons for three years but has never taken voice lessons.)

CrazedHits reports that “Interscope [chairman] Jimmy Iovine closed the deal before any other label could even step in and meet the kid.”

DO YOU THINK Greyson Chance will be the next Justin Bieber?

“DO YOU THINK Greyson Chance will be the next Justin Bieber?”

Hopefully not, I actually like this kid and his voice.

Wow, that’s great. I’m not sure he’s that talented though. I mean, he’s great and all, but there’s nothing special. He doesn’t have that star quality. I don’t know, I personally don’t see him being the next Justin Beiber. It’s just too soon. I mean, he goes on singing in a run-of-the-mill middle school talent show, puts the video on YouTube, and then 3 days later he signs a record deal with Interscope – a record company that manages Eminem, Gwen Stefani and Lady gaga, to name a few? Whatever..

HALE NO, this boy is actually talented

# 5

He is extremely talented for his age omg.

# 6

He can write, sing, and play piano. Already he is better than that lesbian beiber.

# 7

Would’ve been better if he hadn’t changed the pronoun ;) Amazing voice/talent.

# 8

Lol @ some of the bit.ches in the audience, have some respect fools

# 9

Greyson is better than Justin !

I think they should let the kid grow and gain some experience before signing a record deal, not all the kids know how to deal with fame some end up in drugs or whatever

What a cute kid! Hes awesome =)

I can’t believe he was 11 in that vid, amazing. Boy only turned 12 a few days ago.

@faizz: Bieber taught himself drums, plays acoustic guitar, can sing, and dance.

“Lady Gaga parodies and tributes abound on the Interweb–some funny, some serious, some good, some not-so-good. But the school recital performance of “Paparazzi” by boy wonder Greyson Michael Chance just might be the best yet. As the teacher emceeing the Edmond’s Sixth Grade Festival says at the end of Greyson’s stunning piano performance, this mega-talented kid could even “teach Lady Gaga a lesson.”

He’s been invited to perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this Thursday. According to his bio on his YouTube profile, Greyson is “very inspired by Lady Gaga and Augustana.”

Greyson additionally explains: “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 may look like a Justin Bieber clone with his sideswept-banged bowl cut, but with musical taste like that, clearly this boy is no prepubescent pop robot. This kid is deep. (His aforementioned original song “Stars” is about a woman who dies of cancer and meets her husband in heaven, for instance–not exactly “One Less Lonely Girl,” huh?) Today’s tween fangirls would be way better off worshipping a role model like Greyson over Bieber–and judging from the flustered way the girls react in the background of his recital clip, such wide-scale worship may not be far off.

After Greyson’s upcoming “Ellen” appearance, surely countless more tweens will be his biggest fans, following him until he loves them.”

Now…american idol would be great if they had talent like this. He would instantly be the winner lol

OMG..he made my skin goose bumpy!!!

an Axl Rose was born 12 yrs ago!!!

A rare talent indeed, the record company did a real smart move in grabbing him before others got to him. He’s a winner for sure, Watch out Bieber and that goes for you too, Gaga. He’s going to outshine the both. Looking at his sibling and mother on the Ellen show, I know he’s going to grow up into a good looking young man. Love his vocals, so effortless.

He is talented but he’s still a KID! TWELVE! Why are they signing him at this age? That’s just insane to me.

He’s WAY better than Justin Bieber.

I hope his parents protect him from being shaped and molded into being something he is not – a Disneyfied product – like what has happened to Bieber. If he is talented, he needs to develop himself, live a normal life, get really good training and an education, then go on to make millions when he has his own voice.

The handlers are a destructive force.

Wow, things are moving fast for him!

I can hear him going through puberty in this video. He can’t hit the high nots. And he has to take breaks alot. He’s not fluidly getting the wording and piano notes together. Too choppy. Interscope needs to sit down.

This kid will be better because he can actually sing!

Piano playing is good if he really did only take lessons for 3 yrs and his voice is okay, but I don’t see his performance as being fabulous or worthy of a record deal. — I’ve seen better.

No, I don’t think he’s gonna be the next Justin Bieber because this Greyson kid has real talent.
