A Limelight is the term used to describe a fan of Why Don't We. Limelights is the official fandom name. Fans named themselves with the hashtag #WeAreLimelights and the name stuck. The idea originated from the band's first debut single, "Taking You", with its first line, "I need you in my life like limelight." They were nominated in 2018 for "Best Fan Army" for iHeartRadio Music Awards. The band also introduced "limelight", a special backstage meet and greet for fans.


Limelight is a noun that means "the focus of public attention".[1]
