These days they're selling millions of albums worldwide, but back when it all began, this is what the likes of Britney, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift looked like (in case you'd forgotten!)

So, do you guys remember back to 2006 when Taylor Swift was singing country music?! "Our Song" was what it was all about, and then she started singing "Love Story" shortly after that. The rest is of course history! Now she's cut her hair shorter, bought some straightners and discovered red lippy. 

Back then, these stars probably didn't have pre-show rituals, or designated stylists. 

And, in case you'd forgotten, Miley Cyrus was a cute, innocent Disney star. She released her first Hannah Montana album in 2006. All credit to her for shaking that image and showing what she's made of.

Before Ri-ri was a good girl gone bad, she was singing "Pon De Replay". Wow, 2005 really was a while ago.

Mariah, Mariah. We love the natural look, and those curls. Back in 1990 she had a multiplatinum debut album, and she's still on the scene, especially at Christmas!

It's not long since Katy Perry was saying 'I Kissed A Girl'. 2008 to be exact! Now she's keeping us guessing with a different hair colour every week.

Awww Christina. She looks so young and innocent. Before fake eyelashes were a thing, she was singing 'Genie In A Bottle'.

Britney changed music FOREVER with 'Baby One More Time'...and she's still rocking it 15 years later.

Back when Beyoncé was in Destiny's Child, her Mum made her clothes. She still owned it...but Queen B is now an ultimate diva.
