Many famous musicians have humble beginnings, getting their names known by singing into webcams or playing guitar on city sidewalks. Today, an aspiring teen street musician that we came across on the Interwebs literally make our jaws drop. In an unbelievable video, 17-year-old Norweigan drummer Baard Kolstad amazes passersby on the streets of Oslo with his incredible display of musical prowess. Seriously -- the kid can really bang it out.

The teen is already starting to generate some buzz in the music industry. He made it to the semi-finals on Norse Talenter, Norway's version of America's Got Talent, before he was eliminated.

Is this young street drummer the next Ringo Starr? We think so, but don't take our word for it -- check out this young musician's amazing skills for yourself. The video is starting to go viral, and for good reason. Remember his name, because our money is on this teen becoming the drummer of the next legendary rock band!

In other uplifting teen viral videos, a 15-year-old British student documents his cliff-jumping adventures and other summer fun in Bermuda, and hospitalized teen Hana Hwang created this touching "thank you" video for Selena Gomez after the star visited her at the hospital.
