It’s hard to believe that it has been less than a year since middle-schooler Greyson Chance was plucked from obscurity after his school assembly performance of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s Paparazzi hit YouTube and became a viral sensation.  Since then, he has appeared on Ellen, picked up a recording contract and released his first single.  His latest claim to fame is as the 2011 inaugural performer in Billboard.com’s Mashup Monday series, where he puts his own spin on the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alicia Keys[/lastfm] tune Empire State Of Mind.  While I’m not exactly crazy about the intro, I do like his vocal take on the chorus quite a bit!
