Michael Jackson, 12
Before he turned 12, Michael already had three number-one hits: "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "The Love You Save." "ABC" would score him his first Grammy nomination in 1971. In 1984 he became the first artist to win eight Grammys in one night for the album Thriller. Over his nearly 4 decades in pop music, Jackson would be nominated 35 times and win 13.

This year, the 53rd annual Grammy Awards is making headlines because CBS has urged performers to, well, cover up. A memo issued to performers outlaws "thong-type costumes" and "sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples," to be put into effect for this weekend's broadcast. The Standard and Practice Wardrobe Advisory has also asked performers to "... please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack." Because, you know, there was that whole Janet Jackson fiasco. Supposedly this is all an effort to create a more family-friendly show. Despite all of this hullabaloo, kids have actually been performing at the awards for years! I've got a roundup of examples to prove it.
