Selena Gomez's First Disney Audition

Selena Gomez Is as Cute Now as She Was in Her First Disney Audition at 11

"You know, I'm not going to cry if I don't get it," 11-year-old Selena Gomez quipped after her seriously impressive Disney audition back in 2004. She was experienced, after all, with a role in Barney & Friends already on her résumé.

The "Hands to Myself" singer obviously signed with Disney after her audition, which led to her breakout role on Wizards of Waverly Place (which ended 5 years ago!). But have you ever seen young Selena's unrefined acting chops? Press play above to watch her confidently tackle a line read like a pro, all while wearing an adorable poncho. When you're done with that, if you're still feeling nostalgic, relive her friendship with Demi Lovato.
