14-year-old Kiana Brown from Phoenix, AZ, earned your votes and is the grand prize winner of Kidz Bop's Kidz Star USA Talent Search. Over 45,000 kids across the country entered this online talent search by uploading their audition videos online and over two millions fan votes were cast. Kiana won a role in the next Kidz Bop commercial and music video and a recording contract with RCA Records.
American Idol winner Kris Allen mentored the Kidz Star finalists and gave them advice throughout their journey. "These kids are really talented and they've blown me away," Kris tells J-14. "These kids just love music, that's why they're doing this and that's why I started making music so it's been very, very inspiring for me."
We got an exclusive performance from Kiana herself when J-14 hung out at the SiriusXM Radio studios in New York City with the finalists and Kris. Check out the video below:
