Greyson Chance recently transplanted from his home town of Edmond, OK to Sunny Southern California to begin recording his first album.
Greyson, the 12-year-old Prince of Piano, stole the hearts of every onlooker as he performed Lady Gaga‘s Paparazzi on The Ellen Degeneres Show– so much so that Ellen herself decided to sign him on as her first artist on her record label: ElevenEleven & Geffen Records.
He is currently living the LA lifestyle- between recording for his first album, and being nominated for the upcoming Teen Choice Award’s Best Web Star, Greyson is a very busy boy!
The Forbes 2010 Most Powerful Celebrities list is usually reserved for bigshots like Oprah and Lady Gaga, but this year, two of our favorites made the list: Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.
Miley’s ranked at number 13 on the list, with a web rank of 6 and a TV/radio rank of 17. Forbes also reports that she made $48 million last year! The Jonas Brothers hit the list at number 40, with a social rank of 7 and a web rank of 15. The brothers’ pay isn’t far behind Miley’s at $35.5 million.
It’s a world gone Gaga, and no one expressed that better than this week’s Glee cast. The singing was divine, the costumes superb. The five track album from the episode is now avilable on iTunes!
We’ve all been waiting with bated breath for a duet between Rachel, played by Lea Michele, and (spoiler alert!) her mother Shelby, played by Idina Menzel. What better song to illustrate their complicated relationship than Lady Gaga’s Poker Face? And if that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, then “Beth” surely will.
Overall one of the best mini-albums from the season!
Glee’s already honored quite a few pop stars during its first season, and now it’s ready to take on Lady Gaga with its next episode!
The episode, titled Theatricality, is set to air tomorrow night (May 25). The preview features the cast of Glee dressed up in a few of Lady Gaga’s infamous outfits, and performing her hit “Bad Romance.”
Greyson Chance, who many are calling the next Justin Bieber, has a record deal. The 12-year-old will be joining his idol Lady Gaga on Interscope Records.
Within the last week, Greyson’s YouTube channel has received over 17 million views and landed him a performance on “Ellen,” where he received a phone call from Lady Gaga herself.
“Greyson, you’re so sweet and so talented, and I was so excited that you covered ‘Paparazzi,’” Lady Gaga told him on-air. “Everyone loves you so much. Just keep following your dreams and work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused.”
You might not have heard of Greyson Michael Chance, yet, but this Bieber-esque crooner is already making his mark. He has already logged over ten million views on his Youtube channel for his performances, including a piano virtuoso version of Gaga’s “Paparazzi.”
Chance originally performed the song for his middle school in Oklahoma. His hands fly across the keys and his voice hits every note pitch perfectly, all while making the song totally his own.
Do you think Chance has what it takes to be the next Justin Bieber?
