YouTube star Greyson Chance got a double dose of celebrity on the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. The 11-year-old from Oklahoma, whose talent show version of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" (also in the video gallery) has scored 11 million views, got to perform and talk on the phone with Gaga herself, reports MTV. (She comes in about the 3:30 mark.) "You're so sweet and so talented, and I was so excited that you covered 'Paparazzi,' " the pop star told Chance. "Keep following your dreams and work really hard and stay away from girls and be focused."

Chance gushed over Gaga, too: "I love how she's so different, and she takes her individuality and her amazing talent and makes great songs that are catchy and that make you want to dance," he said.
