Sixth-grade 'Paparazzi' singer better than Bieber?

Posted on

The Web is going crazy for Greyson, the young man who performed a killer cover of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at his sixth-grade festival. (Watch it after the jump, along with the Lady Gaga acoustic performance that no doubt inspired him.) His voice is amazing. The little girls love him. (Jezebel has some nice screengrabs.) And I’m personally obsessed with his decision not to say the word “eyeliner” but to leave in “cigarettes.” Also, his ability to make me experience a pang for Taylor Hanson.

Could we be looking at the next Bieber? Should you think he’s a one-hit wonder, we’ve also embedded two of his original songs: “Stars” (about a woman dying of cancer) and “Broken Hearts” (he begins the performance by fixing his hair, but don’t let that stop you from watching).
