The Fine Brothers are famous in YouTube for their “Kids React”, “Teens React” and “Elders React” videos. The videos portray the reactions of a group of children, teenagers and the elderly when they see one of the most viral videos on YouTube. It’s a very interesting concept and the reactions are very amusing to watch!

Shirley Setia is an emerging Bollywood sensation on YouTube. She creates covers of many popular Bollywood songs, such as “Tum hi ho” from Aashiqui 2. Her voice is very unique and different as compared to most voices in Bollywood, and I feel that her voice is certainly one that is very beautiful.
