Thia Megia: 17 Under 17 Pop Tween Stars
Pop Dust named Thia Megia & Lauren Alaina (tie @ #13) as one of the upcoming tween artist under 17.
LAUREN ALAINA/THIA MEGIA
Sounds Like: A perkier Gretchen Wilson; a very serious Disney princess.
Notable Achievements: Both girls took advantage of Idol’s rule change, auditioning when they were still fifteen. (Thia had previously appeared on America’s Got Talent, which allows contestants of all ages to try out.) Lauren impressed the judges with her soft country twang when she auditioned in Nashville—they proclaimed her the best they had seen in the city. Thia, meanwhile, has earned plenty of praise for her Gleek-y song choices, like “Out Here on My Own” from Fame, and the standard “Smile.”
What Their Fans Are Saying: “You’ve got real, natural, God-given talent.”—Randy Jackson on Lauren Alaina; “That beautiful voice is transcendent.”—Jennifer Lopez on Thia Megia
That's nice considering they are just under Jackie Evancho @ #12 who launched her album last December and made platinum.
