Carly Rae Jepsen first caught our ears with the insanely catchy pop confection "Call Me Maybe" back in February, when Justin Bieber endorsed the tune via Twitter and created his own video rendition along with Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and other Disney/Nickelodeon favorites.

At Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, Jepsen's bouncy performance, girlish demeanor and bright, sparkly outfit made her appear closer to the age of some of her young fans.
In fact, we'd never have guessed that Jepsen is the same age as fellow 26-year-old Lady Gaga -- perhaps because the latter's dramatic makeup, elaborately constructed costumes and enigmatic persona often make her seem more mature.
