TVR Awards -- The Most Talented Kids of 2010 (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Dec 28th 2010 1:35PM


Everybody loves watching a talented kid perform, it's basically a fact of Internet life. The popularity of TV talent shows combined with the growing prevalence of YouTube celebrities introduced a new wave of young, brilliant performers this year. We drew from a variety of shows for The Most Talented Kid of 2010 category, including 'So You Think You Can Dance', 'America's Got Talent', 'Toddlers & Tiaras', and 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'. These kids are the real deal, singing, rapping, dancing, and playing piano. Which one do you think is the most talented? Watch the videos and vote below in our poll.

Greyson Michael Chance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show:' Chance's YouTube performance of Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' earned him this 'Ellen' appearance, and a call from Gaga herself, who warned him to stay focused and stay away from girls. Chance's solo piano arrangement of the song, not entirely dissimilar to one Gaga has sometimes performed live, is remarkable.

Brian Gaynor on 'So You Think You Can Dance:' Gaynor has scoliosis, a condition you might think would limit his dancing ability. But his popping and locking is so smooth, and his choreography so beautiful, it brought tears to the judges' eyes. Gaynor was twenty-years-old at the time of his audition, which makes him a stretch as a kid, but his story was too inspirtational to leave off this list.

Jackie Evancho on 'America's Got Talent:' To find a ten-year-old kid who can sing Puccini arias seems a rare feat. To find one that sings as well as Evancho, well, it was one of the most amazing things to happen on TV this year. She's already well on her way in a recording career now. As Piers Morgan said, "Are you sure you're not 30?"


Seven-year-old rapper on 'Ellen:' The word smooth does not apply to most seven-year-olds. But Lil' P-Nut is smooth. How smooth? Listen to him rap on 'Ellen,' inviting his paramour for a freeze cup over a social studies book. Ladies, he likes girls who obey their parents and play a mean game of hop scotch. He doesn't even care if he's in the second grade and you're in the third. Can you be his world?

Zander on 'Toddlers & Tiaras:' At five-years-old, little Zander has done 60 pageants and has a room full of trophies and crowns, which is why he calls himself a "pageant diva." His mom prefers "pageant king." His main motivation for winning is so his mother isn't sad.

I watched Brian do his thing a couple or so years back, and was impressed with his program. He being handicapped had nothing to do with his unique talent to perform and entertain a vast TV audience. Brian gave us something we'd not seen before.

The mother of that little boy should be dragged outside and severely beaten.

First of all, all you posters of dating sites and shopping sites and stupid mail-order products, need to go away before you are exterminated by the Internet Task Force. Second, did anyone else notice that Ellen Degenerate still couldnt give up the stage while the kid was performing? She is, in a word, hideous.
