The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus aren't oh so five minutes ago — yet. Still, let's ask: Who's going to be hot? There's a new generation of rising stars. Selena Gomez garnered our No. 1 spot last time around. With a hit show (Wizards of Waverly Place), movie (Ramona and Beezus) and platinum-selling album (Kiss & Tell), we couldn't have been more accurate. Who should you watch out for next? Vote in our poll.

Victoria Justice

When you sign a talent deal at age 15, your star is ascending. That's what happened when 17-year-old Victoria Justice, who guested on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101, had a series created for her on the same network. Her show Victorious had the highest rated live-action series debut at the time.

Justin Bieber

This 16-year-old guy is everywhere and shows no signs of slowing down. Plucked out of Canada to sign with Usher, the Bieb was discovered on YouTube when he posted videos of himself singing. He will next appear in a guest role on CSI followed by a 3D biopic.

Taylor Lautner

Team Jacob, anyone? The 18-year-old actor was relatively unknown when he got the role of Jacob in a little film you may have heard of called Twilight. After almost losing his job for the sequels — coming back as a werewolf requires some manly pecs — Lautner beefed up and returned as a bona fide hottie.

The ladies of Pretty Little Liars

Get used to seeing Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell, stars of the ABC Family freshman series. You may recognize Hale, 21, from the CW's canceled Privileged, and Bellisario, 24, comes from a family of well-known actors and producers. Benson, 20, can next be seen co-starring in TV movie Ex-mas Carol with heartthrob Chad Michael Murray.

The guys of Big Time Rush

Elle Fanning

If her name sounds familiar, that's because big sister Dakota has been on the scene for the last few years. With a bunch of smaller gigs under her belt, the 12-year-old will next be seen in Sofia Coppola's Somewhere.

Kendall Jenner

You may know her as part of the Keeping up with the Kardashians clan, but Kendall is making waves on her own as a model. At just 14, she's signed with a major agency and already has headlined campaigns for Forever 21 and Nordstrom.
