2. Ariana Grande

Can you name one Ariana Grande song? If you're over the age of 25, you probably cannot. However, you know her name, and you know her impressive vocal range, even if you can't decipher a word she's belting out. But she's a local Fort Lauderdale gal with an impressively high ponytail that cannot and will not be ignored. Maybe she'll even team up with our next pick for the single "Problem" on the BB&T stage.

3. Iggy Azalea

Don't know about you, but Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea seems like the kind of gal we want to chill with. She handled all the shade Nicki Minaj may or may not have thrown her way at the BET Awards with class. If you survived growing up in a country with the most dangerous, venomous creatures on the planet, we're pretty sure you can make it in the hip-hop game no matter what.
