Lately it seems kids of all ages are finding fame on Youtube just by uploading themselves singing! 

If you didn’t know, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Greyson Chance[/lastfm] were both discovered on youtube. 

Well, in a world where undiscovered talent seems to be just about everywhere, we decided to find the ten BEST covers by kids.

Hey, maybe we can help them get signed!

1.  Maria Aragon (10 years old)- Born This Way by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]

Tweeted by Lady Gaga herself, Maria found instant fame as her video surged to over 10 million views in just two days of being uploaded.  Lady Gaga even talked to 10-year-old Maria inviting her onstage for a duet when Gaga hits Canada next!


2.  Christina Grimmie (13 years old)Mine by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taylor Swift[/lastfm]

So Christina hasn’t gotten tweeted or noticed by Taylor Swift but it doesn’t stop this 13-year-old from making her own music videos to her cover songs.


3.  Jenna (11 years old)Last Name by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Carrie Underwood[/lastfm]

Talk about a voice beyond her years.  Eleven year old Jenna even tried out for America’s Got Talent.


4.  Greyson Chance (11 years old)Paparazzi by[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]

With over 37 million youtube views, it’s no surprise this 11-year-old boy got handpicked by Ellen DeGeneres herself to be launched into fame.


5.  Troye Sivan (15 years old)- Hold It Against Me by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Britney Spears[/lastfm]

Coming from Perth, Australia I almost didn’t make it past just listening to him talk let alone sing.  It’s the accent, it always is.


6. Clinton Cave (17 years old)- Just The Way You Are by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bruno Mars[/lastfm]

Seventeen’s still a kid, right?  Right?  Some people are worth bending the rules for.


7.  Megan & Liz (16 year old twins)Crazier by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taylor Swift[/lastfm]

Not only have these girls gotten youtube fame from their acoustic duets but even Oprah Winfrey brought them on the show to talk to Taylor Swift after seeing this cover.


8. Savannah Outen (16 years old)Crush by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]David Archuleta[/lastfm]

Blonde 16-year-old cutie Savannah has been doing covers since 2007, it’s safe to say she’s found a good career path in music, eh?


9. Bianca Ryan (11 years old)Piece Of My Heart by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Janis Joplin[/lastfm]

Bianca Ryan got her start on America’s Got Talent, wowing the judges with her rendition of “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” and since then it’s all been smooth sailing for this now 15 year old.


10. Avery (16 years old) - Never Say Never by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm]

What were you doing at 16 years old?  I doubt it was making online videos with over a million views.  It’s okay, neither was I.


Who do you think had the best cover?
