Charice ranked number 4 in Billboard’s “Top Stars Under 21” List

There’s no stopping Filipina international singing sensation Charice as she continues to reap praises and recognition in the international music scene. After her successful debut on the pilot episode of the second season of “Glee”, Charice was ranked number 4 in’s “21 Under 21:Music Hottest Minors.”

The artists included in the list were chosen for their potential to rule the pop culture zeitgeist over the next 12 months. Billboard explained that the help of Oprah Winfrey who plucked the Filipina sensation from obscurity two years ago and the US hit musical series "Glee" season 2 makes Charice really "hot."

Last Wednesday, a day after her successful debut on the hit musical series “Glee,” two of the songs he sang in the series landed in the iTunes Top 10 lists in the US. Her version of “Telephone (Lady Gaga and Beyonce)" with "Glee"'s Lea Michele reached the number 2 spot while her solo performance of “Listen” (Beyonce) landed on the number 8 spot.
Here’s what the Billboard article said about Charice:

“Why She's Hot: Oprah and "Glee": They're two of TV's most powerful zeitgeist-definers, and both have fallen head over heels for Charice Pempengco. Credit the Queen of All Media for plucking the Filipina sensation from obscurity two years ago and introducing her to Celine Dion.

"The hype finally paid off this spring, when Charice debuted in the Billboard 200 top 10 with her first US album. But it's Fox's high school musical hit, in which she now plays a foreign exchange student with killer pipes to match Rachel Berry's, where Charice will show millions of geeks that she can out-sing the best of them.”

Below is the complete list of's Music's Hottest Minors

21. Sean Kingston 20. Cody Simpson 19. Nikki Yanofsky 18. New Boyz 17. Never Shout Never 16. Wonder Girls 15. Diggy Simmons 14. Miranda Cosgrove 13. Chris Colfer 12. Taylor Momsen 11. Lex Luger 10. Miley Cyrus 9. Greyson Chance 8. Demi Lovato 7. Willow Smith 6. Nick Jonas 5. Soulja Boy 4. Charice 3. Selena Gomez 2. Justin Bieber 1. Taylor Swift
