At age 9 years and eight months, Little Jimmy Osmond became the youngest person to ever hit #1 on the UK singles chart. His insipid "Long Haired Lover From Liverpool" stayed at the top of the charts for five weeks there...though it just barely scratched its way into the Top 40 in the US. Because in the United States, most of us are all slightly creeped out by the idea of 9 year old boys being lovers.
Jimmy is now president of Osmond Entertainment and recently did a stint on the UK reality series I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here. Here he is back in THE day.
Meanwhile, does anyone else think Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford could be a long lost Osmond?
