List Rules Vote up the most unbelievably talented kids that make you feel guilty for binge-watching Netflix instead of bettering your life.

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.

Darci Lynn: Ventriloquist Superstar

 

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.

This musical prodigy is already following in the footsteps of Mozart. She not only plays violin like a virtuoso, but she plays piano and composes symphonies comprised of all instruments. While on Ellen, this posh English darling gushed about her love for Los Angeles, palm tress, and popcorn, 

However, she wasn't always conscious of her brilliance, confessing she thought her dreams consisted of symphonies by Mozart, when in fact they were of her own imagination. Further evidence of her musical genius is a skipping rope which she waves around in the air while melodies pour into her head - the source of her inspiration. In 2016, at only 11-years-old, Alma premiered her first Opera "Cinderella," in Vienna. Tough one to beat. 

Daniel Clarke Bouchard: Played Carnegie Hall At Age 12

 

By his own account, Daniel Clarke Bouchard has officially been playing piano since he was five years old, but unofficially since he was three. Either way, this kid is already a highly accomplished pianist. Hailing from Montreal, he began playing festivals and winning competitions from a young age before landing on the Carnegie Hall Stage in 2012. More than a one trick pony, he also plays hockey.
