BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - There was almost a Black Friday feel at the Mall of America Tuesday morning.

Instead of deals, hundreds of people showed up to see up and coming pop star Austin Mahone. Mall officials estimate 600 fans were lined up outside when the doors opened at 5 a.m.

The 17 year old is performing Tuesday on the Mall of America Sound Stage at 2 p.m. Mahone got his start on YouTube and is now touring with Taylor Swift. Some are referring to the pop star as the next Justin Bieber.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt spent the morning amidst the Mahone madness.
