Watch out, Justin Bieber. There is a new kid in town and he's ready to steal your thunder. His name is Greyson Michael Chance -- he is working on becoming the next tween sensation, and like Bieber, the Internet is helping him do it.

A video of Chance performing a rendition of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at his school's "Chorus Performance Night" has become an instant YouTube hit, earning well over a million views.

In the video, Chance hits all the right notes and the audience members behind him are visibly impressed with his piano playing and vocals.

The sixth grader from Oklahoma will soon show off his talent to an even bigger audience when he performs on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday.

And of course, like every 12-year-old aspiring to fame, he has his own YouTube channel. On it, he claims he is inspired by Lady Gaga and Augustana, a folk rock band.

"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 im (sic) older," he writes and "Augustana is one of the most underated (sic) bands I think ever to step the planet."
