4. Janet Jackson, 7
Janet began very young, performing in Las Vegas at the MGM Casino at the age of only 7. After pursuing an acting career for a while in "The Jacksons" and the sitcom "Good Times", she recorded her first song with her brother Randy, age 12. Seeing the success of The Jackson 5, Janet arranged aged 16 a contract with A&M Records, who she released two albums with. Success was definitely in that girl's genes!
