Grayson Chance, the 12-year-old sensation that wowed YouTube and Ellen this week, has been signed to Interscope Records, home of the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Lady Gaga and more. The 6th-grader performed Gaga's "Papperazzi" on the piano at a school festival so powerfully that he attracted over 15 million YouTube viewers, and Ellen flew him out to LA to perform on her show. Now, the young phenomenon, who reportedly has only taken 3 years of piano lessons and never had any voice coaching, is being compared to Justin Bieber.

Interscope has not confirmed the record deal yet.

    This kid is not the next Justin Bieber. He is way more talented vocally and hs songs are very deep. Interesting to see if he can make it doing what he wants and writing songs like the 2 he has on youTube or if he will turn bubblegum pop/r&b like Bieber.

    I agree with Chris. The two have very different styles. Bieber is more bubblegum pop, and this kid is more alternative or folk rock. He is more talented IMO too. I've seen Justin Bieber's Youtube videos before, and I wasn't impressed then and even less impressed now. Autotune is for singers that can't sing. I wouldn't be caught dead listening to Bieber, but I'd listen to Greyson's music (as long as he sticks to the same stuff he's doing now). They both need to stop with that annoying head swing though. It makes me want to effin' knock their heads together.

    The difference is clearly visible, Greyson is talented. He has an amazing voice at 12, he isn't showy or trying to woo the girls, he sings and is very good at it. Being old enough to be his mother, I hope this child continues on and shows the world it's more than a haircut or dancing on a stage. If he keeps himself grounded he will go extremely far. Excellent.
