Lady Gaga-coverin', Justin Bieber-lookin' Greyson Chance met his idol at one of her concerts this week, tweeting: "I met @LadyGaga! She was so kind, gave me some great advice and put on an amazing show!!" Greyson also shared a photo of the meet-up (above).
When the 12-year-old piano prodigy from Oklahoma set YouTube ablaze in May, he quickly appeared on 'Ellen,' where Gaga made a surprise phone call, advising him to "work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused."
News came just weeks after Greyson's debut that Ellen DeGeneres started a record label and signed Chance as her first artist. In a simple statement, DeGeneres said: "Greyson inspired me to start a record label called eleveneleven. He is my first artist and we are making a record together." In a video message on her website, DeGeneres issued the singer a large check for $10,000.
Kelly Cheek, Greyson's music teacher at Cheyenne Middle School in Edmond, Oklahoma, told PopEater in May, "I have never seen anyone with his level or type of talent. We really hope he comes back to school for the rest of the year, but after this video, who knows what his future holds!"
