Cowell let Deming try again with “Grenade” with a piano track that mysteriously just happened to be ready and queued up.
Reed Deming kind of looks like Bieber, sounds like him, and sings like him… But Deming seems to cringe at the very comparison to the pop singing sensation.
In fact, during the introduction in the following video, X Factor producers played Bieber’s “Boyfriend” as the background audio to reinforce how much they expect from Reed.

Reed Deming is from San Antonio Texas and it is clear he lives a life being compared to Justin Bieber.
Deming has been singing for a while and is no stranger to the stage or the music business.
Reed already has his own professional website, Facebook page, and YouTube Channel and his bio says Reed was born with singing and music in his DNA.
So who is Reed Deming?
Deming’s musical style can be described as alternative pop or alternative rock, and he is inspired by artists such as One Republic, Coldplay, Maroon 5, and Paramore.
Reed writes his own original songs and also plays guitar, saxophone, dances, and acts. He already has a manager and has already made several TV appearances on local news shows and talent competitions.
Deming has received a number of record deal offers, and was recently a finalist in Simon Fuller's “Boy Band for the Next Generation” nationwide search, and participated in a recent “Kidz Bop” nationwide talent search.

Reed recently signed a management deal with John Gomez of Silver Tongue Management and is currently in the studio working on new material and his first EP - which will be released late 2012.
