8. Lana Del Rey

Glamorous singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey made a big splash on the internet over the summer with her viral hit "Video Games." She wrapped up the year by releasing a slick, incredibly campy clip for "Born to Die," the first single from her debut album of the same name, due out in early 2012. It remains to be seen whether or not Del Rey can translate internet hype into mainstream success, but she's clearly poised to make a play for stardom in the coming months.
