“To sleep, per Chance to dream ...”

We are learning more about Greyson Chance, the young man from Edmond, Oklahoma, who became a big hit on YouTube this past Tuesday, and was featured here that same day. He also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, where he got an unexpected phone call (not to mention some rather sage advice).

He'll be on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson tonight. Yeah, we're staying up late for that one. No Tivo yet at Chez Alexandre.

POSTSCRIPT: Famecrawler looks at the sudden fame of Greyson and asks the impertinent question: “Is that really such a good thing?” My advice to the parents? Don't be like that piece of trailer trash Billy Ray Cyrus was with his daughter and skank-in-progress Miley. Get a good lawyer whom the family can trust, have him find a good agent who isn't too ambitious for the kid's own good, cut one album of the signature hit along with original material, make a few appearances to talk it up, put the money in a college fund, and let the kid be a kid, a NORMAL kid.

But hey, that's just me.
