Madame Tussauds Hot 100 KV Landscape

Madame Tussauds, well-known wax attraction with deep-rooted expertise in fame, unveils the inaugural Hot 100 – an annual index spotlighting a diverse array of rising superstars from across the globe.

In the midst of ‘Awards Season’ with everyone’s eyes on the hottest celebrities around the world, this is the first time ever that Madame Tussauds is pulling back the curtain to provide a glimpse into its research process by spotlighting a diverse set of influential people from multiple domains.

The 2024 list, dubbed the ‘Hot 100’ to mirror the prominence and stature of its selections, features a collection of the world’s most influential people, spanning talents from acting, music, fashion, sports, and culture, and celebrates their global impact and diverse achievements.

The inaugural Hot 100 isn't just about rising stars, though they shine brightly. Alongside established talents like Kim Petras, poised for a global tour later this year, and Hollywood heartthrob Pedro Pascal, set to star in the hotly anticipated Gladiator 2, stand figures like The Bear's breakout Ayo Edebiri, passionate conservationist Robert Irwin, and boundary-pushing performance artist Alok Vaid-Menon. These up-and-comers bring fresh perspectives and undeniable talent to the global stage, hinting at the exciting directions fame might take in the years to come.

While the Hot 100 is not a direct indicator of future Madame Tussauds models, it represents a who’s who of talents on the institution’s radar.

The global music industry shone particularly bright this year, with a whole chorus of superstars gearing up for world tours or highly anticipated albums. Australian pop-prince Troye Sivan is set to take his viral album on a summer tour, with dates across Europe already announced. 

Laura Sheard, Global Brand Director for Madame Tussauds says, “We’re excited to finally announce the inaugural Hot 100, which showcases Madame Tussauds’ long-standing expertise in charting the course of global fame. We’ve crafted this index to capture a diverse and globally representative snapshot of rising stars, celebrating iconic people from all corners of the world.'

Compiled by Madame Tussauds’ global team by analysing a myriad of data points, from social media trends to significant career milestones, along with regional insights and instinct, the Hot 100 assesses each celebrity’s achievements, reputation, and digital footprint to spotlight the emerging icons of our era. The selection also reflects popular demand from fan bases, ensuring the list resonates with what the public is talking about right now.
