It's hard to grapple with the realization that no matter what we do as adults, it would require ten times the amount of effort to be even half as cool as the incredibly talented kids on this list. It's safe to assume that a six-year-old girl who kick flips a skateboard off a railing in a fairy costume is probably better than you at everything. But it's not just skateboarding fairies that have made the list; it's miniature music prodigies, dancers, historians, and flat out geniuses, all of whom have made headlines in recent years for showcasing their amazing talents.
Many talk show hosts and internationally recognized talent shows have taken on the wonder of child prodigies, exposing their wild talents and launching them into stardom. If you want to feel inspired to take a stab at something new, check out the most talented kids ever.
This little bundle of joy earned the singer-songwriter spot on the 2016 Billboard 21 Under 21 list of music's hottest young stars. This is of course after she gained recognition from Simon Cowell on the America's Got Talent stage. It was her signature raspy voice, ukulele skills, and quirky songwriting abilities that won over the hearts of America and Simon Cowell. She released her debut album this year called Just The Beginning.
Rayssa Leal: The Skating Fairy
Rayssa Leal has become a household name in her home country of Brazil as "Fadinha Do Skate," which roughly translates to "The Skate Fairy." This nine year-old skater not only shreds on her board doing processional grade tricks, but she does so wearing a fairy costume.
She's won numerous skating titles and received a shoutout from skate legend Tony Hawk. This tech-savvy youngster has created a cult following on her Instagram, where she keeps her fans updated with dabs, vids, and action shots.

It's not often that you come across a ventriloquist these days, much less a bubbly blonde 12-year-old one from Oklahoma. Darci Lynn began singing at a young age until stage fright took its toll. That is, until she discovered ventriloquism and started to gain her confidence back along side her puppet bunny 'Petunia'.
Darci Lynn championed the America's Got Talent stage, winning over the judges and voters alike with her unique talent and poise. There's no doubt ventriloquists around the world are thankful she's keeping the art alive.
Brandon Niederauer: Face-Melting Guitarist
Some speculate he's Jimi Hendrix reincarnated. Guitar-slaying Brandon Niederauer got his start on the Ellen show in 2013 when he was just 10 years old, and he has since gone on to accomplish much in the music world. Since Ellen, he landed a starring role as Zach Mooneyham in the original Broadway show School of Rock: The Musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. He's accompanied countless highly acclaimed musicians on stage, including members of the Allman Brothers Band, Buddy Guy, Stevie Nicks, and Lady Gaga, to name a few.
At his ripe young age, Niederauer's resume includes performances at festivals, conventions, and Madison Square Garden. But just in case you didn't feel bad enough about yourself already: this kid is also a talented actor and plays a role in the full-length feature film Here Comes Rusty.
