Star Search was a talent competition that ran from the early 1980s to the mid-1990s. It was also resurrected for another run from 2003 to 2004. Several famous singers, actors, and comedians appeared on the show - with some even becoming winners.

Who is the most famous person who appeared on Star Search? Beyonce Knowles tops this list. She performed on Star Search in 1993 with the group Girls Tyme, along with her Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland. In 1992, a 10-year-old Britney Spears appeared on the show, as did her fellow Mickey Mouse Club member, Christina Aguilera, in 1990. Other celebrity pop stars who were on Star Search include Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, LeAnn Rimes, and Usher. Several famous comedians were also contestants, and some well-known celebrity hosts and even a Playmate made their debut on this talent show.
