7. Okay so he was a YouTuber, but when did he make it BIG?
We've got Ellen DeGeneres to thank for that! When she saw Charlie's cover of Adele's 'Someone Like You', she HAD to have him on the show. In fact, when she first called him, he thought it was a prank and hung up on her... three times! Luckily her team eventually got through to him and, after a successful performance on the show, he was signed to her eleveneleven record label. (Pic: EllenTube)
