Lea Michele’s Pre-’Glee’ TV Gig

OMG Crush


While Lea Michele is having quite the breakout year in "Glee," the brunette beauty has been belting it out professionally since she was a little girl. Of course, we've all heard about her stints on Broadway, in shows such as "Spring Awakening" and "Fiddler on the Roof," but did you know the future Rachel Berry once took the stage on Sally Jessy Raphael's TV show?

Back in 1995, when she was just 9 years old, Lea was one of several pint-sized performers on an episode titled "I'm A Kid ... & Already A Star!" The 2010 Golden Globe nominee's talent was on full display as her angelic voice crooned "Castle on a Cloud" from the songbook of "Les Miserables." Unfortunately, Lea's fate as a style icon was not as clear, but who among us didn't don the occasional "Blossom" hat back in the '90s? Besides, the songstress gets bonus points from me for her cute gap-toothed smile and overall adorableness!

Check out the clip that J-14 magazine dug up.
