Janet Jackson‘s celebrating her 52nd birthday Thursday, and she’s getting a huge honor this weekend … so, it’s the perfect time to remember where it all started.

Janet was just 8 years old when she marched onto a stage with Carol Burnett and her big brother, Randy Jackson. The Jackson 5 were the scheduled guests, but Janet stole the show with this rendition of Sonny and Cher’s “The Beat Goes On.”

She’s come a long way since this January 25, 1975 appearance — her first with the fam — and this weekend she’s getting Billboard’s Icon Award. Best moment, besides the singing and dancing, is when Carol asks her name.

All together now … It’s JANET! Miss Jackson, if you’re nasty.
