Check Out Which Stars Were Discovered On YouTube

Let's be honest: the vast majority of YouTube videos barely get seen by anyone. But for a lucky few, YouTube can be a gateway to stardom. Check out which celebrities got their big break on YouTube!

Justin Bieber

Long before Justin Bieber was getting caught with prostitutes, abandoning adopted monkeys, and getting face tattoos, he was just a baby-faced 12 year old posting videos of himself singing on YouTube. Those videos convinced execs at Island Def Jam Recordings to sign him, and ever since he's been a pop sensation.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen was relatively popular in Canada when Justin Beiber tweeted, "Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen is possibly the catchiest song I've ever heard." The tweet sent Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun to YouTube, where he found videos of her singing, and signed her to deal with Schoolboy Records.
