Is Lin Yu Chun the next Susan Boyle?
The young singer blew away the audience and judges with a soaring rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" on the Taiwanese singing talent show Super Star Avenue.

Lin — who is repeatedly referred to as "Little Fatty" on the show and whose name means "educate the masses" — performed in a sing-off and advanced to the next round with a score of 24 over his competitor's score of 22. He had so impressed the crowd the previous week, with a stirring performance of "Amazing Grace," that the show's host jokingly told him to take it easy on his challenger before he did his best Whitney.
The winner of Super Star Avenue earns $1 million dollars and the chance to release an album.
