4. 4. Conor Maynard
Conor Maynard is another UK star who owes a lot to the video-sharing site, after Ne-Yo spotted his cover of 'Beautiful Monster' and quickly brought him to the attention of label executives. Cue a whole lot of media fanfare, some incredible songs ('Can't Say No', 'Turn Around'), and you have a bonafide pop star…all courtesy of YouTube (sort of!).
