    If you watch American Idol, The Voice, or even America's Got Talent (guilty, guilty, never!), you know that there's something intangible about an amazing singer beyond her voice β€” the je ne sais quoi that turns a set of a windpipes into a bona fide star. In modern times, we call this swagger, and NYC singer Neon Hitch has it in spades. We managed to sit down for an exclusive interview and photo shoot with Neon (yes, that's her real name!) β€” in between her performing the top-of-the-charts Gym Class Heroes hit, "Ass Back Home," and readying her own debut album with the breakout single, "Fuck U Betta" β€” to get the scoop on all things Hitch.

    What we found is all we could hope for from a rising pop sensation: over-the-top sunglasses, headdresses for every day of the week, and a rags-to-riches story unlike any we've ever heard (her mother still lives in a bus in Wales). Not only are we dubbing Neon Hitch the next downtown style star, we're dubbing her the Next Big Thing.

    Click through to meet the next best Britney/Ke$ha combo and find out why we love her SO much more.
