All the world's greatest performers have to start out somewhere - and usually before they have honed their image and perfected their style they are just like all the rest of us regular folk. Example in point? Singer Ke$ha!
RadarOnline.com have uncovered vintage footage of a 13-year-old Ke$ha giving an early performance at a talent show held at a school gymnasium.
Looking like a regular, kind of awkward teenager, Ke$ha doesn't show much of the talent that has helped sky rocket her to be one of today's most promising young performers.
Dressed in regular jeans and T-shirt and with her long mousy brown hair falling by her shoulders, Ke$ha is almost unrecognizable as the blonde bombshell that likes to dress in sexy, provocative outfits that she is today.
Giving a pretty forgettable rendition of Radiohead's Karma Police, it seems unlikely that Ke$ha would of scored a position in American Idol's top 24 finalists, let alone go on to make digital sales history with her smash hit Tik Tok.
How times have changed - and how she's grown up!
