Meet Reed Deming, the young singer who wowed Britney, Simon, Demi and L.A. on ‘The X Factor’ premiere — could he be the next Justin Bieber? Watch his audition below!

Reed Deming, 13, is a 7th grade student from San Antonio, Texas, who bears a striking resemblance to Justin Bieber! He’s got the hair, he’s got the style, but does he have the voice?

Reed says that he wants this so bad that he would crawl on broken glass for a shot at fame! Reed battles through his nerves and takes the stage. Demi immediately says, “You are so cute!”

Reed starts off with Bruno Mars‘ “It Will Rain,” but Simon stops him mid-way through. Simon asks Reed to sing a new song to showcase his vocals more. His second try is with another Bruno song — “Grenade.”

This one fares better for Reed — and he ends up with a very positive judging session!

Simon says he needs work on his vocals but Demi says his stage presence “shines.”

L.A. pays him the biggest compliment of all — “You remind me so much of this other little kid…” but Reed jokes back, “I don’t want to fall into that Bieber stereotype, I’ve gotta be me!”

Britney says, “I think you are completely and utterly adorable.” Smiling from ear to ear, Reed gets four yes votes!

Simon changes his tune by the end of the judging and says, “I’m gonna be honest, I think we could be looking at a future pop star with you!”

Watch Reed’s X Factor journey below:

He’s good but there is a Brit named Ronan Parke that is going to make the world forget about Justin Beiber very soon.

Trust me he won’t be the next Justin Bieber. Great voice and all but he is nothing compared to Justin Bieber, he reminds me more of Greyson Chance. Plus he said in the video he doesn’t want to be like Justin Bieber. Anyways he might become famous or he might not. Not a fan but he has a talented voice. No8

I totally agree, plus he said he doesn’t want to be like Justin Bieber. He looks nothing like Justin Bieber he reminds me more of Greyson Chance. Nice video though, but I’m not a huge fan of him. Maybe he’ll become famous someday.

He does look like Greyson Chance, he doesn’t look like Justin Bieber in my opinion and there won’t be another Justin Bieber. Leave this boy alone he has a name and his name is Reed Deming. He’s amazing I have to say, I’m glad he said he doesn’t want to be like Justin Bieber.

I actually know Reed. If he can’t outsing Bieber (Which he can) he can always outsmart him. Reed is extremely smart.

Only One Bieber

He says he doesn’t want to be stereotyped as Justin Bieber,
but yet he’s all dressed up like a time traveling Bieber, complete
with chain and dog tag and purple on the wrist.

Not very truthful is he.

Join the long list of “The Next Justin Bieber”.
