Billboard.com today released its 2013 list of 21 Under 21, the magazine’s annual ranking of music’s most powerful young folks, and it’s a VIP Top 21 of regular Las Vegas visitors.
British and Irish boyband One Direction — Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson — unsurprisingly top the refreshingly diverse list, followed closely by Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. Perhaps you’ve heard of them?
The list of fresh faces includes more boybands, a cool girl group, hip-hop stars, a sweet K-Pop princess, a rising EDM star and budding global pop icons.
The Top 21, in order:
