Jessica Simpson Shares Teenage Video of A Chorus Line Performance

Hip rolls, high kicks, jazz hands – and plenty of belting.

Jessica Simpson Tweeted the "ultimate" video in honor of "throwback Thursday," sharing a sweet vintage video from her high school performance of A Chorus Line's show-stopper "The Music and the Mirror." (Watch it above.)

With a big voice, red lips, credible leaps and plenty of dance technique, Simpson's performance at Richardson, Texas's J.J. Pearce High School, where she later dropped out and earned a GED, screens like something from an episode of Glee. It also spotlights her wholesome good looks and early talent before she rocketed to musical, fashion and reality TV fame.

Anybody thinking Simpson, 32, didn't have the pipes or performances skills to hit the big time should check out the expectant mother's dancing and singing chops.
