Greyson Chance may be only 15, but he sure knows how to charm the ladies. The latest artiste to be part of MTV Sessions, the chirpy lad took to the stage and sang his heart out, including tracks from his various releases and even belted out a cover of Michael Jackson's Human Nature.
Fans went into a tizzy during the hour-long showcase, especially so when he dished out various endearments to a lucky few. "Thank you, sweetheart!" and "I love you too!" are just the tip of the iceberg when it came to Greyson's honeyed tongue.
The fans themselves came armed to the teeth with light sticks and boards proclaiming their love - some were cleverly worded to include his song titles, including 'Sunshine & City Lights' and 'Leila', but others were more tongue-in-cheek.
In between takes, the genial lad took the chance to chat with his adoring fans, sharing information about his life (he loves his puppy so much, his dad sends him a picture every day) and making many a fan swoon with his mere presence. It's easy to see how appreciative of his fans he is - Greyson revealed that he had sent pizza to those waiting in line for his showcase, with some arriving at the venue at the break of dawn.
Greyson however drew a line at fans' requests for him to perform Psy's viral hit 'Gangnam Style', claiming to not know how to do it. The day before the showcase, he performed a short rendition of the smash hit (and we have the video) while seated. Our take on the matter is that the lad is unfamiliar with the leg movements or Korean lyrics - though the fact that there is something he can't do has made him all the more endearing.
MTV Sessions: Greyson Chance will premiere on MTV SEA December 1 at 6pm.
