By now you've seen the YouTube video of 12-year-old Greyson Michael Chance covering Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' for a school recital, and after a whirlwind week, the Edmond, Oklahoma native has signed his first record deal with Interscope Records.

Just days after the video exploded on the Web, the Cheyenne Middle School sixth-grader appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show to talk about his instant fame. Greyson admitted that he's "gotten a couple of numbers" because of his YouTube success, and as a surprise, Ellen had Lady Gaga herself call in to talk to the young singer and give him words of advice.

Because of his YouTube notoriety, talent and age (plus his strikingly similar hairstyle) many people are comparing Greyson to 16-year-old pop sensation Justin Bieber. Justin got his start by posting his homemade videos on the site, and was later discovered by his manager before singing a recording contract with Island Def Jam.
Now, it seems it won't be long until we hear a full-length album from the young pianist. Could Greyson's forthcoming CD top the charts as quickly as Justin's have? You be the judge. Watch Greyson's performance of 'Paparazzi' from his recent appearance on Ellen after the jump.
