What's it all mean to Bieber?

"Early Show" Special Contributor Tyler McGill caught up with the teen idol at a recent concert at New York's Madison Square Garden and got a loud dose of "Bieber Fever."

"It's definitely been great," Bieber told McGill. "I've been having a great time with just this whole experience.
Over the past year, everything has just happened so quickly."

Bieber is the first musician to go from Internet sensation to mainstream stardom.

R&B star Usher played a big part is propelling Bieber to success, and is "a really big part of my," Bieber told McGill. " … I call him all the time, I ask him for advice. We hang out. He's probably the closest person to me in the music business."

But winning a Grammy would be a new topper for Bieber, he gushed to McGill, saying, "It would mean the world to me; that's definitely one of my dreams, to win a Grammy. So, to have two Grammy nominations is crazy!"
