I started playing the drums when I was about 2 so I started instruments really young and I entered a singing competition when I was around 12. My friends and famiily that couldn't make it, they wanted to be able to see me so my mom and I posted videos of the compeition on YouTube for them to see and just other people started viewing it, subscribing it. Eventually it blew up.

Justin Bieber: I have 38 million views on my page

Ernie D: That's crazy dude.

Ernie D: So when it got to a million, what did you think?

Justin Bieber: Um that's when I just kept putting more videos on. I was like wow this is crazy. So I kept posting more videos and more videos and then my manager found me on YouTube, Scooter Braun. He's in the house

Ernie D: What's up Scoot.

Justin Bieber: [laughs] So he found me on YouTube. He kind of stalked me.

Ernie D: [laughs]

Justin Bieber: He got a hold of my school board, he called my great aunt that I've never met before. He got a contact with my mom's friend. So he was pushing hard. He's motivated and eventually got a hold of my mom. My mom ended up talking to him and now I'm here.

Justin Bieber: Yes so we both kind of ran into each other. I was like "oh my goodness that's Usher". I looked up to him my whole life so I ran up to him and I was like "Usher, Usher I love your songs. You want me to sing you one?" He gets so many people that meet him every single day asking him to give his mixtape and stuff so I ran up to him and I was like "Usher, Usher. I want to sing for you" but he had to go to the studio and he was like…

Ernie D: I'm in a hurry, I'll be right back.

Justin Bieber: … "Just come insidie little buddy. It's cold out." So we went inside and he ran off to his studio. I didn't get to sing for him. I was really bummed but he was like. He talked to my manager, ended up watching my videos and was like "Oh my goodness what did I just do" so he flew me back to Atlanta where I got to meet him again in a proper setting. Got to sing for him and everything. A week later Justin Timberlake also wanted to sign me. So it was like a bidding war between Justin Timberlake and Usher.

Justin Bieber: That's crazy dude. When you were there and you had the choice to make. What was going through your mind?

Justin Bieber: It was just, I was like, really I couldn't make a bad decision.
