Keenan Cahill, of YouTube fame, is hanging his hat on lip-syncing. At just 16 years old, he has his own clothing line, made an appearance on America’s Next Top Model, stood next to David Hasselhoff at the American Music Awards, and performed with LMFAO, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Flo Rida and the entire cast of Glee. What’s next on the list for Cahill? An augmented reality app on iTunes and his own single. The YouTuber went viral in 2010 after posting a video of himself lip-syncing to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” It now has more than 50 million views. When asked what the secret is to becoming a viral YouTube sensation, Cahill attributes it to a shout out from Katy Perry, herself. “She tweeted it and Facebooked it, and said ‘This is my teenage dream,’ and she said ‘I heart @KeenanCahill.’ She’s the one who put me out there and made it mainstream.” THIS… is my Teenage Dream: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lm_n3hg-Gbg&feature=player_embedded — Katy Perry (@katyperry) September
