Here’s another gem for Throwback Thursday. Check out a 7 year old Hunter Hayes on a Nickelodeon kids game show “Figure It Out” back in the 90s! His vocal skills weren’t quite developed yet, but dude killed it on that accordion. He cracks up the cast of “All That” with his hair flipping skills. Hunter’s reply is classic: “That’s part of the act sometimes.”

Hunter Hayes probably didn’t want you to see that. But I’m probably already off his Christmas card list anyway after what I did at the QYK Bay 2 Beach Festival in Clearwater this year.

And by the way, Hunter Hayes isn’t the only QYK artist Nickelodeon spotted back in the day.
