Justin Bieber: Britain's Got Talent is designed for people like amazingly talented Michael Collings
The Canadian pop star was impressed when he saw a YouTube clip of the 19-year-old auditioning for the judges with a soulful guitar rendition of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car.
'He really was an a amazingly talented guy,' says Justin, 17. 'I am sure his life will never be the same again.
'It's a cliché but these shows were designed for people like Michael.'
Yesterday, Michael's audition became the most viewed YouTube clip in the UK and Justin reckons the scruffy singer can be as big as Britain's Got Talent 2009 runner-up Susan Boyle.
'You'd think, after Susan Boyle, people would be prepared for the unexpected,' he tells The Sun. 'But I still don't think anybody expected that.
'I know we are only one show into the season, but I am guessing he must be a big favourite already.'
