There's a new singing sensation on the music scene and he's causing quite a stir on the Internet, leading some to ask if he's the next Susan Boyle.

Lin Yu Chun, 23, blew away judges on the Taiwan's "American Idol"-like show "Super Star Avenue" when he sang "I Will Always Love You."

The song was first written and performed by Dolly Parton and then made big by Whitney Houston when she covered the song for "The Bodyguard" soundtrack. The Internet is abuzz largely because of Lin Yu Chun's pitch-perfect rendition of Houston's version.

If Lin Yu Chun wins the competition, he will reportedly earn $1 million and the chance to release his own album.
