Miley Cyrus‘ audition tape for her role as Hannah Montana has resurfaced, and it just might be the best #flashbackfriday of all time.
The clip runs for five full minutes and shows a super-animated 12-year-old Cyrus singing, dancing, and performing lines for the Disney show alongside dad Billy Ray Cyrus (who also starred on the show.)
We can’t help but feel a tad nostalgic watching Miley’s dance moves from the days before she started twerking on giant teddy bears, but perhaps even more amazing is her pre-teen style–a far cry from the nipple pasties and swathes of fabric she calls dresses today. Obviously, the casting agents were impressed by her performance because she bagged the role and starred on the beloved show from 2006 until it ended in 2011.
We all know what happened after that, but take a second to watch this version of the pop star before she become Miley 2.0—it really is everything.
