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 including a cover of “Empire State Of Mind.”

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!
