|Meet Dani Shay From Orlando|
No one knew who Dani Shay was…
Until last night.
Meet Dani Shay, Justin Bieber’s identical twin look-a-like doppelganger.
Twenty-two year old Dani is a splitting image of teen pop sensation Justin Bieber – and she doesn’t like it one bit.
Shay hails from Orlando Florida and is a singer songwriter who considers herself part of the Indie, acoustic, folk genre – NOT the teenage bubble gum puppy love genre.
And she’s not a boy – she’s a girl and proud of it.
In fact, back when people started telling her she was a splitting image of Bieber she didn’t even know who they were talking about.
Over time, it got to be such a problem she wasn’t really sure how to deal with it - so she pleaded with fans to take a deeper look at her – and not just look at the surface.
She made her plea via YouTube with the following video:
As Biebermania exploded, Shay grew frustrated that all anybody wanted to hear her play at her live shows was “Baby”. So she set out to rectify the problem with her own version of Bieber’s hit song “Baby” – she called it “What the Hell?”
Dani says she wrote the “Baby” parody as her way to fight back when people saw her for who THEY wanted her to be and not the person she really was.
“I am stopped everywhere I go because people think I am Justin Bieber. Before I even knew who he was, no matter what I was wearing, I would be asked for photos, autographs. “What The Hell” was my response to that. It expresses my initial confusion, the shock when I finally saw his face, the frustration with people only seeing him when they see me.”

Dani very much has her own musical style, and even covers an Eminem song, but her biggest frustration was being compared to Bieber.
Her solo album “See Me Now” can be purchased from her website DaniShay.com, and she will autograph it on request and refers to it as her “pre-fame” album.
So, will Dani Shay become famous?
After last night - the answer is probably yes!
You see, Shay took the stage at the “America’s Got Talent” Houston auditions last night and had the opportunity to sing “What the hell” in front of 20 million television viewers.
She was a smash hit! The audience and AGT judges loved it and we’re sure we will be seeing more of her.
What do you think?
Will Dani Shay get her 15 minutes of fame?
