'Paparazzi' prodigy Greyson Michael Chance booked by 'Ellen'

Looks like that "American Idol" gig has primed Ellen DeGeneres' young-talent radar — she's booked Greyson Michael Chance to appear on her show Thursday.

Greyson, who's being hailed by some as the next Justin Bieber, is a sixth-grader whose take on Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" is burning up the Internet. The "Paparazzi" video above was shot at a school talent show in April, Greyson says on his YouTube page.

So is this piano-playing, songwriting 12-year-old a one-hit wonder? Not exactly. (If you didn't just click those links, you may want to reconsider that decision.)
