Lady GaGa finally caught on to the “Kids React” segments that we’ve featured before on the show. The latest video is about GaGa, and she tweeted a link out of it to her “Little Monsters.”

Those kids are on to something. So is Peter Lee Johnson, another YouTube star we’ve featured before. Check out his latest violin cover to Wiz Khalifa’s “Roll Up.”

And finally, this is one of the cooler A Capella groups to grace YouTube – The Blanks with a medley that ranges from Katy Perry to Duck Sauce’s “Barbra Streisand.”

Freakin’ genius.

There are many “YouTube Sensations” these days – people who come from pure obscurity to gain popularity via millions of hits to their various YouTube videos. A majority of these overnight celebrities find fame for every reason except talent.

Count Peter Lee Johnson in the minority.

Johnson is a 20 year-old student at The University of Southern California by way of Seattle. He performs live with “Glee” star Mark Salling – but is gaining notoriety for his violin covers that are posted to YouTube, primarily his take on pop music. Check out a few of my favorites below.


The student’s violin covers are made available as a free download here.


Johnson’s work ethic is as equally impressive as his talent: he would have called in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” for the segment, but he had class. Priorities, kids.
