TVGuide.com Reveals Tomorrow’s Tween Stars Today, Overlooks Mini Clay Aiken

These days it’s all about discovering the next big tween star. And while the current issue of Vanity Fair spotlights Amanda Seyfried, Emma Roberts, Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart as “Hollywood’s Next Wave,” TVGuide.com steps up to the plate by releasing their own list of “The 13 Hottest Young Stars To Watch.”

So who made the cut? Not surprisingly, the top slots all belong to the newest crop of Disney and Nickelodeon ministars — or as we call them, “Mileys in the Makings” — with Selena Gomez ranking first, followed closely by Demi Lovato (called it!) and Miranda Cosgrove. Meanwhile, identical twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse share the fourth spot, Julia Roberts’ niece snags seventh place and the already-famous-by-association Ali Lohan peters in at Number 9.

But alas, not everyone could make the Top 13. Missing from the list are Tiny Masters of Today, Natalia LaFourcade (seriously, WTF is up with this gymnastics photo??), and that annoying little redheaded kid Anthony Gargiula (you’ve seen him on Ellen, wearing the world’s smallest and creepiest tuxedo) who needs to be stopped lest he becomes the next Clay Aiken. Check out the rest of the Hot Young Things list after the jump and a video of Ali Lohan following in her sister’s footsteps — no, not those footsteps… or those… her shopping footsteps.
