He’s been winning fans over by the masses since he hit the scene earlier this year, and tonight (September 6) Frank Ocean proved he’s the real deal at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

Standing out among his fellow performers, Ocean sang a stripped-down version of his hit song “Thinking About You” while perched next to a campfire.

And both fans and celebrities were floored by the flawless vocals- Lady Gaga tweeted, “Watch Frank Ocean steal this whole show. I’m dead.”

Meanwhile, A-Trak of the HuffPost Blog added, “There you go Frank. No need for a trapeze lift or lasers. Marshmallow fire #VMA.”

Ocean’s debut album Channel ORANGE came out back in July.
