Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana takes the lead of the teen diva pack this month as her character discovers the countrified life she's missing. So who makes the teen diva list? These gals don't need to rock out in concert to draw a crowd, although that's definitely a plus. Their leading-lady charisma, upbeat personality and unique fashion sense have teens/tweens everywhere flocking to see them.

Emma Roberts - Nancy Drew
As the niece of Academy Award winner Julia Roberts, Emma has some high heels to step into if she follows in her aunt's footsteps. She did just fine as the classy, perfectionist detective in Nancy Drew, and her more recent Wild Child and Hotel for Dogs captured tweens and dog-lovers alike.
Hilary Duff - War, Inc.
After showing the world she could slim down without becoming anorexic, Hilary broke free from her Disney roots and started taking on more adult roles, starting with War, Inc. She's still catering to her family friendly fan base with the upcoming animated film Foodfight!, and, unless she pulls a Britney, she'll probably remain more widely known for her wholesome Lizzie Maguire image and catchy pop songs.
Amanda Seyfried - Mamma Mia!
This Mamma Mia sweetheart took center stage and jammed to ABBA songs last summer, but you've seen her familiar face before as a ditzy hottie in Mean Girls. Next up, Jennifer's Body with Megan Fox.
Amanda Bynes - What a Girl Wants
Weaned from Nickelodeon TV, her peppy personality never fails to shine in any role she plays, starting from her first lead role in What a Girl Wants to more recent teen flicks Sydney White and Hairspray.
Nikki Blonsky - Hairspray
Nikki's breakthrough role had her singing and dancing her way to teen diva stardom as the plus-size, bouncy haired Tracy Turnblad. She performed alongside a star-studded cast, including John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer and Zac Efron, serving as girls' inspiration to dream big.
Raven Symone - College Road Trip
With followers from "That's So Raven," this Cheetah Girl not only launched a few albums and Disney Channel original movies, she brought her antics to the silver screen in College Road Trip with Martin Lawrence. Soon, she'll be using her star power to hit the race track in Long Beach, CA, for Toyota's Pro/Celebrity Race for charity.
Hayden Panettiere - Racing Stripes
Hayden earned her stripes early on doing film, TV and voice work for albums and animated characters. She's definitely a go-getter when it comes to animal activism -- a trait that plays well into her cheerleading persona. The "Heroes" star takes on another role as a cheerleader graduating high school in I Love You, Beth Cooper, opening this summer.
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens - High School Musical 3
We'll have to throw in a divo here since Zac is just too good a crooner to pass up. He and Vanessa's High School run had teens squealing for more Wildcats... and we bet if they churned out an HSM4, fans would be there for the reunion. His fans who followed him to Hairspray will be sure to catch him in 17 Again, and Vanessa will also have fans anticipating her vocal prowess in her upcoming film Bandslam.
AnnaSophia Robb - Bridge to Terabithia
Animated, optimistic and also musically talented, AnnaSophia is one of the rarer divas who has it all put together. Her latest, Race to Witch Mountain with Dwayne Johnson, continues to keep audiences entertained with a more action-oriented role. Her continuing rise has her set to star with Abigail Breslin in Dear Eleanor, a travel-buddy film scheduled for later this year.
Sara Paxton - Sydney White
As picture perfect as she was in Sydney White, this campus queen was nothing short of evil. Her most recent horror/thriller Last House on the Left shows off her acting versatility, and it's a far cry from her former lighthearted roles. It won't be long before exposure in upcoming TV series "A Beautiful Life" catapults her into household-name status.
Kristen Stewart - Twilight
The frenzy from Twilight etched Kristen Stewart into the hearts of vampire and werewolf enthusiasts everywhere. With three more books in the Twilight Saga that have yet to be released as films, the hoopla around Kristen's role as Bella won't simmer down anytime soon. In between Twilight films, aficionados will be following her in other projects, like the coming-of-age dramedy Adventureland.
Anne Hathaway - The Princess Diaries
She's not a teen anymore, but Anne Hathaway still reigned with teen auds in films like Bride Wars, Get Smart and The Devil Wears Prada. Although she's hung up her tiara, the former Princess Diaries star has matured into a talented thesp, and her fan base continues to grow with her.
