Watch Charice Cover Lady Gaga's "Poker Face"
You may think Charice can sing the phonebook, but did you know she can also sing "Telephone?" Ah, I thought not, but I'm gonna let her prove it to you. The Filipino singing wunderkind, 17 -- who was presented to the world by none other than megafan Oprah Winfrey after the talk show queen caught sight of her YouTube videos -- is about to release her debut disc on May 11, but first she stopped by the UsMagazine.com offices to reveal another hidden talent: she knows all the words to Lady Gaga's biggest hits!
Yes, Charice may have sung with Celine Dion but it's Gaga that has her heart. Check out what happened when we dared the diva to belt out an impromptu medley of Gaga's biggest hits -- including "Poker Face," "Paparazzi" and "Bad Romance." I would say she rose to the challenge, wouldn't you?
