Pint-sized powerhouse!

Janet Jackson posted a throwback clip to Instagram on Tuesday from a ’70s appearance on The Carol Burnett Show in which she sings Sonny & Cher’s hit “The Beat Goes On” with brother Randy Jackson.

At the time of the appearance, Janet was just 8-years-old, according to ABC News.

In a longer video version of the performance, Randy was onstage with Burnett when the hostess said, “Hey Randy, listen to what they’re playing — I know that! Sonny and Cher used to do that. This is my chance, I’ll be Cher and you be Sonny.”

Then, tiny Janet marched out, declaring, “Uh unh, that’s my part.”

Retorted Randy, “Go home, Jan, won’t you go home,” to which Janet responded, “Not until I sing my part.”

Burnett then asked Janet her name, and why she was performing, to which the she noted, “In the Jackson Five family, everybody works.”
