Forget America’s Got Talent or X-Factor (if only), YouTube is the best place to unearth fresh and exciting talent these days. Sure, cats seem to have their fishy paws firmly wrapped around the video-sharing giant’s throat. But if you are willing to search beyond the seemingly endless din of ‘pets do the most menial things’, you can find some people with genuinely inspiring and awesome abilities – and Justin Bieber.

Samsung’s Online Video Talent Search

Samsung recognise this and have just launched a worldwide search for exciting talent on YouTube:

So if you have an amazing trick or ability you desperately need to share with the rest of the planet and want to earn loads of cash doing it, click here.

However, in the meantime, I have decided to do a bit of talent spotting of my own. So sit back and feast your eyes on some of the most remarkable human beings to have ever uploaded their videos on to YouTube. They range from the ‘truly incredible’ to the ‘pretty good’ – and they are all here waiting to entertain you. So what are you waiting for?

Oh, and if you have any other suggestions, please feel free to react angrily in the comments section pointing out my terrible research. I blame those cats.

Anyway, enjoy!
