Usher and Justin Timberlake got into a bidding war over this vocalist. The twist? He's only 15. Hi. I'm Rebecca Reyton, and welcome to, and today we are speaking with Youtube sensation, Justin Bieber. So when did you start performing? Basically, I was always singing around the house. It was a kind of thing that I just love to do,... and I always played a lot of different instruments and stuff, s-so, I-I grew up around music my whole life. Had it always been your plan to pursue music as a career? No, it actually wasn't. I was in a singing competition just for fun, and my friends and family, they couldn't make it. They wanted to be there, but they couldn't. So, I put videos of the competition on Youtube. And, uh, just for them. And, it just kind of blew up. I started getting thousands of hits. Then I started getting millions of hits. Why don't you tell us a bit more about how Usher managed to find you? Yo, Usher! J.B.! What's up man? Basically it happened after I put the videos on Youtube. This one manager found me. He flew me out to Atlanta. I was going to the studio, and I met Usher, and I ran away. And, so, I ran up to him. I was like, "Usher! I love your songs! You want me to sing you one?" And he was like, "Uh, just come inside, little boy." I ended up not being able to sing for him. A week later he actually watched my videos on Youtube, and then he was like, "Man! I gotta get this kid back." So, he flew me back to Atlanta, where I then got to meet him again and sing for him. ~MUSIC~ So, he wanted to sign me, but then a week later Justin Timberlake wanted to sign me. What is it like singing an Usher song for Usher? It was definitely crazy. If you saw that on Youtube, that was the first time I ever actually sang for him. So it was pretty awesome. Now we see so many celebrities who became famous at a young age, and then they kind of train wreck when they grow up. How do you plan to stay grounded? I-I-It's crazy. There's a lot of people that have basically "train wrecked" as you said, but I just have so many people surrounding me that are just great people. I plan to just stay grounded, and it will be a good road ahead of me. Now I'm assuming you have girls following you around all over the place now. Was it always that way? Um, yeah. No. Well, I just....I had a lot of girls chase me before this, but-um-but now there's definitely a lot more. Thank you very much. Thank you very much for having me.
