Senior Year, 2001: Mickey Mouse Club Alumni Reunion at the Top of the Charts
What if you spent your senior year of high school on the verge of a group-superstar turn in the pop-star spotlight? What if your "senior class" wasn't so much a class as a bunch of mega-talented kids who grew up together on The Mickey Mouse Club? If your name started with "Britney" or ended in "-lake" (J.T., can you hear us?), this was your life as a late teenager. OK, fine, so most of our own senior years were a far cry from teenage superstardom (though being on the Yearbook Committee kind of counts as paparazzi training). Luckily, we got to reap the musical benefits of that atypical youth as, one by one, Disney's former child stars climbed to the top of the charts (or at least somewhere near it) and became pop's next generation. Relive the glory days of Brit, JT, Christina, JSimp, Mandy Moore and more of Walt's little darlings here.
