YouTube is a major sensation. Haven’t seen the latest music video of your favorite artist? YouTube it. Wanna learn how to do the ‘Superman’ dance? No problem, YouTube it. YouTube is almost as big as google in my eyes (and I’m sure you see what I see). People are taking advantage of this online publicity. Remixing, remaking and just being creative is the cool thing to do. YouTube gives people the chance to like, favorite, comment and generally give and gain feedback.

Nowadays, people are getting discovered on YouTube. Here is a list of just a few:

The latest sensation is 12 year old, Greyson Michael Chance from Oklahoma. His performance of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” has gained him a lot of attention. Ellen DeGeneres invited Chance to perform on her show.

The internet provides so many opportunities for people to display their work/talent and become discovered–it’s insane!
