The 12-year-old from Edmond, OK dubbed Justin Bieber 2.0 is officially breaking into the music industry.

A YouTube video of Greyson Chance singing "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga and playing the piano during his sixth grade music festival earned him 20 million fans, a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, and even some support from Lady G herself.

Hollywood moves at lightning speed, and Greyson announced that he's signing with Ellen's new record label.

"Greyson ... inspired me to start a record label called eleveneleven. He is my first artist and we are making a record together," the daytime queen says. On Wednesday's show, Greyson performed "Broken Hearts," an original song.

In additional to Ellen's backing, Greyson also will be co-managed by Guy Oseary, Madonna's manager, and Troy Carter, Gaga's handler. Not too shabby!
Of his seemingly overnight transformation from average sixth grade student to music artist with a label, Greyson reveals, "It just makes me happy. It really just hasn't sunken in yet. It has been two weeks and it still hasn't sunken in yet. It's awesome."'
