Yeah, yeah, yeah…Christina, Britney, Justin, J.C. and Ryan Gosling were all on The Mickey Mouse Club before they were famous. They all did time on cringe-worthy shows like Star Search. They all sang on any and every stage that would let them.
The reason we’re putting Christina on this list is because this performance from the then nine-year-old pop star is so vocally perfect that she could probably have won The Voice if she went on today.
On the opposite end of the vocal spectrum, this video from when 15-year-old Rihanna was starting her career (under her real name of Robyn Fenty) doesn’t quite show off the pop star’s singing ability to its best effect. I mean, it’s okay. It’s good in a lot of parts and very pitchy in others. It was apparently good enough to get her management, but would it get her a record deal now?
