Top 10 Kids on the Ellen DeGeneres Show

They’ll make you laugh, they’ll make you cry, and they’ll make you realize just how little talent you have. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for Top 10 Kids on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

For this list, we’re looking at the cutest and most impressive kids to appear on Ellen’s show.

#10: Emma Rester

At only three years old, this pint-sized gymnast puts our flexibility to shame. Emma appeared on
“Ellen” with her mother in 2016, and wowed the audience and at home viewers with her skills. The clip is so impressive that it has been viewed more than 50 million times on YouTube! When Emma appeared on the show, Ellen introduced her saying she had more than 50,000 followers on Instagram. Since her appearance though, her following has skyrocketed to a total of almost a quarter million!

#9: Kea PK

This Hawaiian hip hop dancer flew in from the islands to impress Ellen with her incredible moves. She performs to the mega-hit “Hotline Bling,” and after taking a second to get into it you’re going to have to pick your jaw up off the floor when she starts showing off her moves. She definitely manages to offer better dance moves than Drake does in his video! Oh and if you’re wondering about Kea’s full name? Kiaulolani Okohoaka Kapuakukahi Piau Ukpihea. Try saying that one five times fast!

#8: Elias Phoenix

Ellen has had a lot of talented child guests on her show, with each one bringing something different in terms of their skills. Elias however, was initially there to showcase his prowess on the piano, but what ended up winning everyone over was his unbridled enthusiasm for Ellen and his excitement to be on the show. Viewers were so charmed by his appearance that he ended up returning several times to meet Ellen again and again. It really doesn’t get any cuter than this, does it?

#7: Balang

Someone sent Ellen a video of an adorable kid in the Philippines dancing to the song “Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Ellen knew right away that he had to be on her show. When Balang finally arrived stateside, he came with a translator in tow who helped him chat with Ellen. You might think that the language barrier would make for a less than stellar interview, but this kid’s sense of humor translates just fine. Oh and his dance skills? We’d kill to have his confidence!

#6: Brielle Milla

How many elements of the period table can you name? Maybe if you have a degree in a scientific field you can rattle off most of them, but otherwise we’re pretty sure this three-year-old has got you beat. Brielle learned the elements of the period table when her parents got her some flash cards, and can now recite them all with ease. Brielle has now appeared several times on “Ellen,” and even has her own mini show called “Brielle-iant,” where she gives lessons in science and geography for kids. No matter how old you are, you can definitely learn something from her!

#5: Noah Ritter

Most of the kids who appear on Ellen’s show are there to show off their talents, be it singing, dancing, or some other kind of performance. Noah Ritter doesn’t necessarily have a specific talent, unless it’s being completely hilarious in an unintentional way. Noah found fame because of an interview he did with a local news station where he stole the show with his sardonic commentary and the excessive use of the word “apparently”. He was such a hit the first time he appeared on “Ellen” that he has practically become a regular on the show!

#4: Tavaris Jones

Anyone who has seen an episode of “Ellen DeGeneres Show” knows just how prominently dancing features, so it goes without saying that there have been a lot of impressive young dancers gracing her stage. This four-year-old boy however, managed to upstage them all with his adorable and impressive moves. The first time he made an appearance, it was to dance to 'Juju on That Beat' and he has since come back to update Ellen on what he’s been up to since finding fame on her show.

#3: Greyson Chance

When Greyson Chance was in sixth grade, he performed a rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” in a festival at his school. The result was so impressive that over seven years it racked up more than 60 million views on YouTube. Of course, Ellen couldn’t pass up the chance to meet him and have him give a repeat performance for millions more viewers on her show. His cover of the song is haunting, and remains one of the most incredible musical guests to ever appear on Ellen’s show, even if you exclude age from the equation.

#2: Kai Langer

Some kids manage to snag a spot on “Ellen” because of their incredible entertainment skills, but some get by on pure confidence alone. He may not be the best singer, but he’s got more than enough charm to make up for it. Even when meeting some of his famous idols, he manages to keep his cool. One of the most endearing things about him is his pure, enthusiastic love for Ellen, and when he gave her a valentine and called her his first girlfriend, we pretty much melted. How could you not love him?

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

Tayt Andersen

Macey Hensley

Aidan Xiong

#1: Sophia Grace and Rosie

Today, all you need to do to become a star is post a single hit video on YouTube. That’s what happened when Sophia Grace and her cousin Rosie filmed a video of them performing Nicki Minaj's “Super Bass” and it went viral. Sophia Grace has got some amazing pipes, and possibly the cutest part is Rosie’s silent accompanying performance. When they appeared on “Ellen,” their adorable rap skills eventually garnered them over 100 million views! They even got to meet Minaj herself and sing for her, to everyone’s delight.
