  1. Many people wonder why this guy is getting famous even though there are so many people who sing like J.T. or Kelly Clarkson on youtube.

    Here's one of the reasons...

    He's getting famous due to the fact that a few fans and a couple of million critics watch his videos every single second around the globe(More views than videos of people who sing like Justin Timberlake or Kelly Clarkson)... Basically this guy is unique and thats what makes him so popular...people like seeing unique stuff and when someone gets more than 2 million views on the most popular non-search engine site in the world, more and more people will be so interested until it comes to the time when the media says "hey wait a minute, everyone is talking about this guy...who is he?...let's get him on air...". -its as simple as that

  2. There's a lot of crap on you tube. Just because a lot of people look at it, it doesn't make it good. It's kind of like a train wreck. Personally, I'd rather have a chocolate fountain ( or candy ( It's only the real thing for me.
