We had a realization the other day that we're pretty much clueless about the new generation of teen stars. Long gone are the days of young Sarah Michelle Gellar and Melissa Joan Hart, so we decided to peek around the Internet to update y'all on this fresh breed of Disney and Nickelodeon stars. 

We also realized these kids are all super multitaskers: Part impressive AND part ridiculous.

Ariana Grande
An American actress, singer and songwriter, Grande is best known for her role on Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious. She currently stars in Cat Valentine, the spinoff of this TV show, and launched her first solo album, Yours Truly, last June and has another one in the works. She has a very wide vocal range, which landed her the nickname Mini Mariah Carey. You go, girl.

Cody Simpson
