Most Influential Teenagers

You may want to get to know these names now because these lot are going to be around for a long time yet!

Every year TIME put together a list of the world's most influential teenagers and 2016 is no different.

In the past, the likes of Lorde, Kendall Jenner and Ariel Winter have all been recognised on the list.

According to TIME, when compiling the list they 'consider accolades across numerous fields, global impact through social media and overall ability to drive news'.

So we decided to take a look at this year's run down and picked out a few standout names...

Kylie Jenner, 19

Whether she's appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, promoting her latest Kylie Lip Kit or just hanging out with boyfirend Tyga, we can't seem to get enough of Kylie.

Kylie's Instagram game is on point and her 76.9 million followers love watching her every move. As this is her final teenage year, Kylie won't be eligible for the list next year, but she's definitely a worthy inclusion for 2016!

Shawn Mendes, 18

Shawn Mendes has been taking over the world with his music in the last few years and his latest album 'Illuminate' proved just how talented the Canadian star is.

Whether you're singing along to 'Stitches' or crying your eyes out to 'Treat You Better', everyone loves a bit of Shawn!

Zara Larsson, 18

'It Ain't My Fault' alone is such a huge tune that we would've been shocked if Zara hadn't been on this list.

Having won the Swedish version of Britain's Got Talent as an eight year old, it seemed a dead cert that Zara was destined for stardom and she's proved over the last ten years that she's undoubtedly a star.

Jaden Smith, 18

Coming from an amazingly talented family, Jaden proves that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Having collaborated musically with the likes of Justin Bieber and starred in numerous feature films, he's also now in ne Netflix show The Get Down.

Chloe Grace Moretz, 19

Having starred in the likes of Kick Ass and (500 Days Of Summer, Chloe Grace Moretz is pretty hot property in Hollywood.

She gained some additional exposure this year due to her very public beef with Khloe Kardashian and her relationship with Brooklyn Beckham. Hopefully she can avoid any more dramas going into 2017!

We all know Fifth Harmony are amazing, but did everyone know that Camila Cabello was only 19!?

Having dominated the charts with her fellow 5H members, Camila even released a solo track alongside Machine Gun Kelly recently, so appears that nothing can stop this megastar.
