Jay Sean can now join the list of artists who have discovered talent over the internet.
"I saw them on YouTube, discovered them and snapped them up," Jay told us about The Janoskians.
The Janoskians (Just Another Name of Silly Kids in Another Nation) consist of five guys, Daniel Sahyounie, James Yammouni and brothers Beau, Luke and Jai Brooks. The multi-talented group is based in Australia and falls into the categories of YouTube comedy troupe, pranksters, singers, entertainers and stunt performers.
"They have made a living out of annoying people, making pranks and being mischievous," said Jay. "But they're also professional singers."
The guys were featured in Jay's latest music video for "Where You Are," and they couldn't be more thrilled. "I remember sitting at home and listening to his music," said Beau. "And now we're on set with him."
"He's that older cousin that you love so much that you talk about him to everyone," said James. But one thing everyone doesn't know is Jay's other sides. "He does have a few personalities that haven't been shown on camera yet," James added.
Jay shared one of those personalities with us. "I have an alter-ego called Retroid the Zap," he revealed. "He was kind of discovered through these boys. I think the world will meet Retroid one day."
Hmmm. Sounds like a video game character, but we're game.
