YouTube is amazing — seriously. It brought us the love of our life (Justin Bieber), the world’s most hated popular song ever (“Friday”), and now it’s bringing us another star to obsess over! Basically if you haven’t heard about Ryan Beatty by now, then you must be living under a rock. He’s covered the likes of Bruno Mars, John Mayer, Adele, and Katy Perry with such precision that it’s caught the ears of Disney and some big-shot Hollywood execs. Want to know more about Ry? Read below to find out Ryan’s favorite candy, which Teen.com fave he wants to collab with, and what Ashton Kutcher had to do with Ryan’s success!

1. Ryan started uploading videos to his sister’s YouTube channel, but when people started take notice of his vocal talent, he started his own channel on February 25, 2011! After posting his first video, he got 10,000 views that first week!


2. After only a year, Ryan’s channel became one of the most subscribed-to-channels on YouTube — worldwide!


3. Ryan teamed up with the uber-talented Cimorelli family to cover Selena Gomez‘ “Who Says” and Rebecca Black‘s “Friday”!

5. One of Ryan’s hobbies is cooking. He loves watching Top Chef with his sister and tries to cook up similar concoctions. Can we come over for dinner??


6. Who’s Ryan’s biggest motivation and inspiration? His fans!


7. His favorite candies are Sour Punch Straws and Cherry Laffy Taffy. Ya know. In case you ever want to give him a present or something.


8. He grew up in Clovis, California and went to Clovis High School for two years. But now a Junior, Ryan’s getting home-schooled through online schooling.


9. Ryan’s got a bunch of celeb fans — including Ashton Kutcher! Ashton took to his Twitter and Facebook accounts and posted Ryan’s “Waiting on the World to Change” video for all his followers (6 million + on Twitter and 8 million + on Facebook!) to see. Talk about promotion!



10. If Ryan could duet with anybody, it would be Ariana Grande. “I think she is incredibly talented. I’ve always been a big fan of her,” he says in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.

    I love Ryan. He is so incredibly talented and he is NOT going to be the “next Justin Bieber.” They both have incredible voices, but they are both unique in their own way. They shouldn’t be compared to each other to see which one is better or who is the new who. It’s ridiculous that people do that. They are each their own person, and they are both talented. People really need to stop with that already.
