He then caught the eye of a producer at Ellen DeGeneres' show, leading not only to an appearance on the show but also the first spot on Ellen’s newly-formed label, eleveneleven. He has now appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show eight times.
Since his first appearance on Ellen's show, Greyson's had two successful North American tours, as well as performing at The White House and appearing on shows such as Good Morning America, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and CBS Early Show.
