Tuesday’s episode of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ featured the founders of YouTube, and a star who was born thanks to posting videos on the popular web site. Oosterbeek, Netherlands resident Esmee Denters, whose videos caught the attention of Justin Timberlake, has gone from singing on a web cam in her bedroom to opening for the former *NSYNC star on a few tour dates, including one show in her native country before 50,000. Timberlake signed Denters to his Tennman Records label earlier this year. The ‘Oprah’ feature includes comments from Timberlake and an in-studio visit by the 19-year-old phenom. Esmee wrote in a MySpace bulletin to fans on Friday, “Wow as I watch this myself, it feels like I am dreaming! I just can’t believe I was on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’. Hope you enjoy the interview.” YouTube has since removed the video.
