16. BRITNEY SPEARS

TV Show: The All New Mickey Mouse Club

When Britney Spears was just eight years old, she auditioned for the The All New Mickey Mouse Club. The search was for “normal kids with amazing talents, not showbiz kids with agents."  Spears had the talent; at the Atlanta audition she beat out around 800 kids for a spot in the show thanks to her dancing ability. Thanks to Mickey Mouse, things like this have happened.
