I Propose That Star Search Was the ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Of The 80s

July 23rd, 2010 // Leave a Comment

I love going through the old Star Search clips on Youtube to see the young version of today’s celebrities, like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Aaliyah, Alanis Morissette and more. In some cases, it’s clear that was clearly the predecessor to shows like America’s Got Talent, American Idol and probably Toddlers & Tiaras, albeit with more outright talents than spray tans or flippers. And if you don’t know what those are then you should be ashamed of yourself and watch T&T on TLC asap if you even want me to care about you as a person.

Also, does it make me a horrible person to even hate Christina in this clip as a child? I feel it’s evident what she was bound to turn into…(take that however you want). Watch more delightful clips after the jump.
