Yes ladies and gentlemen, before Beyonce was Queen B and even before Destiny’s Child, Beyonce appeared on reality television. Once upon a time, the hip-hop girl group Girl Tyme appeared on Star Search. Many people call Girl Tyme the original Destiny's Child. It's crazy to think that one of the most talented and powerful celebrities on the planet made her first television appearance on reality T.V. Although Beyonce’s life has changed dramatically since Star Search, she says she remembers that day vividly. There is no denying how talented Beyonce is and without Star Search we are sure she would have still found her way to the top. She is that good.
