Ariana Grande

Born: June 26, 1993

Known For... Playing drama queen Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon smash Victorious, singer and actress Grand also just scored a record deal.

Kid Appeal: The girl can sing. Plus, Grande’s signature style keeps the kids on their toes.

Parental Appeal: She may be on hit kids’ show, but 18-year-old Grande was a Broadway baby. In 2008, she starred the musical 13 on the Great White Way. “You would think that it would be totally exhausting and, at some points, it was, but there was never a night where it wasn’t like, ‘I want to do another show,’” she’s said of the experience. “It was amazing.”
