The Biebster may be one of the hottest singers in the world right now, but before he was a mega star, he thought about trying out for American Idol!

Well, HollyWho-knew this? Before he made it big in the music biz, Justin Bieber considered auditioning for American Idol to get his big break!

“You know, [my mom and I] used to watch Idol. Me and my mom used to watch it when I was little and we were like ‘I could get on there, you know,’” the 16-year-old told when asked if he would have competed on Idol.

He added, “When I turned 16, I might have went and tried out, but this [YouTube] was faster.”

We commend your impatience, JB, especially because your gamble paid off! Usher and Justin Timberlake both loved your Youtube videos so much that they actually fought over you — but Usher eventually won out. Needless to say, we think you’re doing *pretty well*. SO well, in fact, that we’re giving you our Newcomer of the Year award May 13. Idol who?

Do you think Justin Bieber would have done well on American Idol?
