Bieber backs new BGT star Michael

Justin Bieber has revealed he's a fan of Britain's Got Talent hopeful Michael Collings, describing him as "an amazingly talented guy".

The global singing sensation predicted big things for the 19-year-old, whose audition on last week's show has now been watched by more than one million people on YouTube.

"I know we are only one show into the season, but I am guessing he must be a big favourite already," Justin told the Sun.

"He really was an amazingly talented guy. I am sure his life will never be the same again."

Michael, who lives in a caravan park in Plymouth, received a standing ovation after his performance of the Tracy Chapman hit Fast Car on Saturday's show.

Justin - who found fame on YouTube himself - said shows like Britain's Got Talent were "designed for people like Michael".

He added: "You'd think, after Susan Boyle, people would be prepared for the unexpected. But I still don't think anybody expected that."
