Lorde Tops Billboard's List of Hottest 21 Stars Under 21!

Billboard just dropped their annual Hottest 21 Stars Under 21 list and Lorde sits strongly at No. 1!

The 17-year-old “Royals” singer not only beat out Justin Bieber, but 5 Seconds of Summer, Shawn Mendes, Austin Mahone, The Vamps, and more!

Every year, the magazine ranks music’s most powerful minors – everyone from international stars, social-media powerhouses, on-the-rise groups and singers – who have already accomplished a great deal, but are safe bets to continue finding success as they edge toward adulthood.

Check out the list below and tell us what you think!

21. Unlocking the Truth
20. The Vamps

18. Rae Sremmurd

    I don’t think they mean hottest in terms of looks or s exual desirability, they mean hot as in at the top of the game in music, talented, popular, etc. She does look about 35 years old, but she doesn’t look bad. Some people look older earlier and staying looking like that a long time, kind of like they stopped aging. By the time she gets 40 her look probably will have mellowed out. She might even be pretty.
