Tokio Hotel: Bill Kaulitz

With his dashing looks and electrifying performance on stage, he has made teenagers go head-over-heels. Well, he is none other but the German heartthrob Bill Kaulitz. Lovingly nicknamed Meckie by his friends and fans, this famous young singer, lyricist and lead vocalist from Germany has achieved an iconic status among the teenagers. With his androgynous look, edgy hairstyle and power packed performance Bill Kaulitz is the youngest person to be immortalized in wax at the Madame Tussauds museum.

We've watched this band grow in the truest sense of the word. When Tokio Hotel, the boy group from Magdeburg, appeared on the cover of Bravo teen magazine in summer 2005 – and practically every week after that – singer Bill Kaulitz and his twin brother Tom, the group's guitarist, were just 15. Base player Georg and drummer Gustav were bearlike boys of 17 and 18, who covered their bulky shoulders with fan t-shirts of heavy bands. Bill and Tom, however, wore their polished subcultural outfits with a breathtakingly childish air – Bill's voice hadn't even broken, and smaller shoulders have never graced a leather jacket.

The wide world of showbiz has never lacked child stars. But that would be the wrong term for Tokio Hotel. Bill and Tom, born in September 1989 in East German Magdeburg - just months before the fall of the Wall – are the products of a world in which pop culture clutches kids in first grade. Bill and Tom were part of the pop lifestyle long before they met their first producer, who trained them in instrumentals and vocals to prepare them for a major label. At just seven their step-father shoved guitars into their hands. Tom has been styling his blond dreadlocks and wearing baggy pants since he started school, and Bill styled himself like the early David Bowie at just eleven, with a glamorous spiked hairdo and black eye makeup.
