Greyson Chance doing remake of Lady Gaga's Paparazzi

Imagine a moment where your life changes overnight. There are a lot of people who wish for this kind of moment. Thanks to the internet, its more possible than ever.

Its happened for Greyson Chance.  He's a 12 year old from Oklahoma.  He did his own interpretation of Lady Gaga's hit "Paparazzi" for a 6th grade recital.  I found the video earlier this week online and it had just over 30,000 views on YouTube.  I put it up on Twitter and apparently so did a whole lot of other people because as of the moment I'm writing this blog the video now has more than 10.5 million views.

He was on the Ellen show yesterday and said he's had three years of piano lessons and never had a vocal lesson.  On Ellen's show he did a carbon copy of this performance.  It was awesome.

Here's the original:
