    Check Out A Young Beyoncé Performing On "Star Search"

    In the early '90s, Queen Bey proved she was a true diva.

    In 1993, a 12-year-old Beyoncé appeared with her pre-Destiny’s Child group — the TLC-esque Girl’s Tyme — on the greatest talent competition show ever: Star Search.

    The moment Girl's Tyme took the stage all eyes were on BEY.

    And she delivered, giving us an early taste of what was to come.

    She served us her powerful, patented hair twirl and "no, no, no" handshake...

    ....and she even delivered the bringing-it-all-home move -- like a true DIVA.

    But alas, Bey's awesomeness was not enough: The girls lost the competition to the band Skeleton Crew.

    Oh, just in case you were wondering, Kelly Rowland was also there.

    And after blocking Bey, this girl was never heard from again.
