Is it just us, or does rising star Austin Mahone an awful lot like Justin Bieber from back when he was first hitting the scene?

Seriously, these two guys could be brothers - or at the very least cousins. Inf act, both of them got their starts in 'the biz' in a similar manner. Both Justin and Austin were discovered because of internet videos.

Maybe, just maybe, there is some secret government program that has cloned Justin Bieber so that every few years we can have a new version to control young girls? Nah, that's crazy talk.
