Help Stuff the Ballot Box for Laguna Beach's Tay Barton!

Make Tay Barton the Next Big Thing!

Rebecca Black? Sooo last year.

Time for a new Orange County-based teen singing sensation, and Laguna Beach High's Tay Barton could be the Next Big Thing ... but she needs your help.

Barton, who's all of 15, is one of five performers competing on Season 4 of Radio Disney's Next Big Thing talent contest—call it American Idol for the teen set. The winner gets to record and release a single through a Disney-affiliated record company.

Wait ... record companies still exist? Apparently!

We've seen Barton's clips, and she sure seems majorly talented—nice non-Auto-Tuned pipes, plays guitar, and loads of personality. And she loves Laguna. Check out this home video of her crooning Carrie Underwood's "So Small" while scoping out the downtown shop windows and romping in the surf.

And here's her Radio Disney profile page, where you can get a better read on what she's all about, and, more importantly, vote for her. Click the link, register your name, and then vote until your click finger falls off. Yeah, there's probably some kind of vote limit, so spead the word amongst your Facebook/Twitter friends.

Go Tay!

This girl is amazing. I honestly have never heard a voice so pure in my life. She sounds like an angel whether she is recorded or live, thats when you know she has real talent. I am so impressed. When I hear her song "Live U, Love U, Breathe U", I think of my boyfriend and I just want to be with him and kiss him :) REAL artists stir up emotions like that and I feel a real true connection to her music. Go Tay Barton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't agree with you more Clarissa, not to mention, have you seen this girl? She is gorgeous... isn't she like 15 or 16? She really is the real deal. When she sings that "Undo It" song by Carrie Underwood, those super high notes are so clear! Where did this girl come from and why are we just now finding out about her?!!
