In the spirit of our Which Band Has The Best Fans poll (which resulted in an all-out war between Juggalos and Phisheads), we're now asking an even more important question: which teen idol has the very best, most dedicated, loyal, dare I say rabid, fans? That's because this Friday, Nick Jonas will be on our show, performing with his new solo project, Nick Jonas and The Administration!!! In preparation for the inevitable flood of fans to 30 Rock, I was thinking, which young star has the the most loyal legion of superfans?
The Jonas Brothers officially hit the scene in 2005, and they are still going strong, thanks to a hardcore fan base. You know you've got serious fans when riot police are called whenever you land in a new city!
Team Jacob went full throttle after the recent release of New Moon, which really brought Taylor Lautner's werewolf character - and his bare chest - to the forefront. We have to admit, we're fans too.
When Miley quit Twitter, her fans went nuts begging for her to come back. Even Billy Ray responded. Hannah Montana? More like Fan-nahs Montana!
Watch out teen idols - there's a new pop singer in town, and his name is Justin Bieber. He rose to popularity on YouTube, and keeps a direct line of communication with his Bieber-heads on Twitter. When you cause a stampede at a mall in Long Island, you know you've got the makings of a megafan force!
With over 1.2 million followers on Twitter and an even bigger fan base on YouTube, Demi is beloved by a lot of loyal fans. When she was here on the show, she showed us her love for metal by headbanging to Barney's theme song.
Classic heartthrob looks + mysterious vampire + thousands of fans offering up their blood = TEAM EDWARD!!!
Selena Gomez rocked it out with Justin Bieber this New Year's Eve, and it sent the fans into a complete tizzy. Like her pal Demi, Selena keeps in touch with her fans via YouTube and Twitter.
Zac Efron may be growing up and taking on more serious acting roles, but he's no less a teen idol.
Everyone's always talking about Team Edward and Team Jacob. What about Team Bella? MORTAL WOMEN UNITE! And, she can throw a football!
2009 was a very good year for Taylor. After her adorable appearance on our show and on SNL, she's garnered even more fans than before.
