The “Mirrors” singer is instantly recognizable with his trademark curls, and looks too cute for words as he strums his instrument, while rocking a pair of red and white spotted dungarees.

The Throwback Thursday Instagram upload shows that Jessica Biel's husband has been fine tuning his musical talents long before his first public appearance on Star Search at the age of 11.

And the former *NSYNC star has his mother to thank for sporting his early musical talents.

"When I was very young my mother sat me down and said, 'I think you have a gift for singing and I'm going to help you discover how far that gift can take you because I think it can change your life. But always remember that music is only one part of your life and it doesn't make you a better person in any of the other parts,'" the singer told Britain's Hello Magazine. "I've never forgotten that."
