Today we are showing you videos of big name celebrities when they were first starting out.

It kind of gives you hope to see these actors and musicians trying their hand at local commercials and talent shows. Is Hollywood's next big thing living next door to you now?

Do you know this next little country star by his performance on Star Search . Now his dip into country music doesn't seem so strange anymore.

If you are wanting more celebrity stories of before they were famous, we suggest you check out Michael McCrudden's YouTube channel. His channel is all about not only "before they were famous" stories of movie stars, but also Vines stars and musicians alike.
