Five Youngsters To Keep Your Eyes On


TIME Magazine has just released their list of the world’s 25 Most Influential Teens, which includes youngsters who are taking on Islamist militants, filling out baseball stadiums and even conquering short-form video sharing service, Vine. We congratulate those who’ve made the list but we’ve decided to use it as inspiration to compile our own list of the kids we predict will feature in the TIME countdown soon…


Honey Boo Boo

You best redneckanize! We first fell in love with the chubby-faced child beauty pageant contestant from her days on Toddlers & Tiaras and the popular Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. We are simply rooting for her because her hilarious quotes should be adopted into everyone’s vocabulary.

Maddie Ziegler (Star of Dance Moms and Sia’s Chandelier):

If you’ve seen Maddie in Sia’s Chandelier then you know exactly why she deserves a place on the list! This Pennsylvania native has more than 238 600 000 views on YouTube and even encouraged television host Jimmy Kimmel to try his hand at learning her iconic choreography.

Kai Langer

The adorable four-year-old singer originally appeared on his girlfriend’s show (he professed his love for Ellen DeGeneres, which tells us he definitely doesn’t have a problem with confidence) and caught our attention when he performed his unique rendition of Bruno Mars’s When I Was Your Man. From that moment on, he’s made his mark on our hearts and we want everyone to know more about crooner Kai!

Robby Novak

Having a nickname like “Kid President” is enough for us to campaign for Robby to be on a TIME list soon but we’re actually supporting the 10-year-old because he inspires us through his website,

Since his very first video, he’s casually been chilling with Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Nicholas Cage and even the Obeezy, the Preezy of the United Steezy – Barack Obama!

Taylor Hatala

The word “amazing” is the first adjective that pops into our heads as soon as we start seeing Taylor Hatala dance. Her captivating performance to Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda in September went viral and she then topped that with Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass. This 11-year-old is an entertainment phenomenon to definitely keep your eyes on.


We hope TIME Magazine is taking notes… but let us know if you agree with us. Do you think there are more youngsters who should be on their radar? Let us know in the comments.
