Chloe and Halley BaileyInterview with The Next Big Thing winners Chloe and Halle Bailey

We’re big fans of Radio Disney’s The Next Big Thing winners 15-year-old Chloe and (almost) 14-year-old Halle Bailey! The sister duo have been impressing listeners around the world with their incredible singing abilities, performing on Austin & Ally, and even getting props from Beyoncé (!!!) for their cover of her music. In this interview, the two girls talk about what it was like winning N.B.T., their favorite books, and why it’s important to have great self-esteem. Check it out (and be sure to read our interview with another N.B.T. favorite Becky G)!

Q: How did you feel winning The Next Big Thing?

Chloe: It was so much fun. It was such an amazing experience. The whole entire year was filled with N.B.T. Tours. Actually winning the whole thing and having our fans supporting us and voting for us really meant a lot. It was so cool!

Q: What is your favorite book of all time, and what are you reading now?

Chloe: I just read Divergent (for ages 12 & up) and I loved that book. They are turning it into a movie, but read the book before you see the movie because it is really amazing!

Halle: And I think my favorite book was Twilight (for ages 12 & up) because I fell in love with it. I’m obsessed . . . I’m a Twi-hard fan.

Q: Who’s older?

Halle: Chloe’s older.

Chloe: We are a year apart.

Q: What do you think is the most important issue for kids your age?

Chloe: Self-esteem. I feel like a lot of kids have low self-esteem and they don’t believe in themselves. We are all special and different and wonderful in our own unique way, and we need to enjoy that. Enjoy [your] own individuality! It wouldn’t be fun if everyone was the same, right? So, embrace your uniqueness. Go with it and feel fabulous and just work it.

Halle: Yes, I feel exactly the same way!
