List RulesIf you're adding a singer to the list, be sure they're 24 years old or younger.

The music industry has long been a place for rising young stars—with many of today's top singers under 25 years old. In fact, a great deal of pop singers and stars come to rise long before their 20s. Even the most popular singers of the last few decades hit the scene at a young age. No matter the reason these kids get discovered so young, they'll all be more than established artists as they pass the quarter century mark. And while some may fade away and others will only accelerate through their careers, these are the best singers under 25 right now. Whether you're talking young female singers or top male artists, who do you think has the most talent?  

From the top country artists like Kane Brown to new pop singers such as Zendaya, this list of singers under 25 features a broad range of young sensations—as well as some well-established artists who are still in their prime, including Justin Bieber and Halsey. Then you have kids like Jacob Sartorius and Loren Gray who are still teenagers. In short, all of these great young singers have made a name for themselves in the business, and they could all have long careers ahead of them. Of all the singers on this list of 25 under 25, do you have a favorite?

Check out all the singers under 25 years old below and vote up whoever you think are the best artists out right now. Of course, you can also add others who may be missing from the list, just ensure they're no older than 24.
