This year’s Billboard 21 Under 21 (2013) of “most powerful minors” includes all the usual suspects: Justin Bieber, Cher Lloyd, Miley Cyrus, One Direction. But there’s a fair share of newcomers like Ariana Grande, Lorde, Emblem3 and Fifth Harmony, as well as a few acts like Miguelito and 10 year old rapper Matty B.
One Direction got the top spot this year, up from #2 last year, and somehow Justin edged out Miley as the runner-up. Justin took #1 spot back in 2011 & 2012.

Justin Bieber becomes the youngest artist to land five chart-topping albums in the US on Wednesday (Feb6) when his latest record, “Believe Acoustic,” debuted atop the Billboard 200 album chart.
As expected, “Believe Acoustic” sold 211,000 copies in its first week according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.
The album also topped iTunes downloads charts in 63 countries, and became a hot topic on Twitter as the Beliebers raced to purchase the record as soon as it was released.
Justin previously collected No. 1 albums with “My World 2.0″ (2010), “Never Say Never: The Remixes” (2011), “Under the Mistletoe” (2011) and “Believe” (2012).
He was tied with Miley Cyrus with four chart-topping albums before turning 19, and he is the only one of nine artists in Billboard history to have a No. 1 album for four consecutive years.
Justin Bieber’s new album Believe Acoustic is projected to land at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week, reports Billboard.com
This comes as no surprise, considering Justin is the biggest pop sensation on the planet right now. He also had four other releases hit No. 1, making this his fifth No. 1 album to date.
The new album may also give Justin a No. 1 album in four consecutive years — something only nine earlier acts have done in the nearly 57-year history of the Billboard 200 chart.
