This #Talented goes to a triple treat whose star continues to rise–Zendaya Coleman.

The Disney darling gained fame portraying hip-hop dancer Rocky Blue on the sitcom Shake It Up, a series about two teens who land gigs on a local Chicago dance show.

Coleman known mononymously as Zendaya has also released two singles ‘Swag It Out’ and ‘Watch Me’.

The Shake It Up star is the youngest contest to ever grace the ballroom floor on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and she’s even receiving praise from her competitors.

From People Magazine

“I mean, oh my gosh,” Dorothy Hamill told PEOPLE. “Doesn’t matter if she’s 16 or 12 or 100. It was just beautiful.”

Added Karina Smirnoff, standing with her Super Bowl champ partner Jacoby Jones: “We probably won’t be able to do what she did today after 10 weeks! Because that takes years of practice and training.”

Check out her moves below.

Chime in: Do you see Zendaya making it far in the competition?

Josh’s Note: I’m a Zswagger (nickname for her fans) so I’d love to see her rock it to the mirror ball.

#TalentedTuesday: Maria Menounos.

“I’m happiest when I’m doing a million things. I don’t see my career going in any one direction. I see myself doing a potpourri of things.” —Maria Menounos

Maria Menounos.

Maria Menounos has rocked since I was in 6th grade watching her on Channel One and she’s on #TalentedTuesday because she is still impressive to watch.

Menounos is a journalist, author, television personality and actress who has taken to the dance floor.

The DWTS contestant is also the entrepreneurial brain behind AfterBuzzTV a new media platform that provides folks a place to go after their favorite show.

Josh’s Note: She inspires me, I like people with great range. As a journo she can go from hard news—interviewing politicians—to soft and chat with celebs. As a career woman she can bounce from one thing to another and evident by her DWTS stint if she doesn’t know it she’s going to learn it.
