Nick Cannon was voted "Best Dressed" in high school? It's all starting to make sense now.

Take a look at these old yearbook photos of Nick, and you'll see what this talented, driven young man was like before he grew up to be the star the world knows and loves.

Back when he was a school kid, Nick was involved in a lot of different activities, from running track and taking part in long jump, to being the President of the African Student Coalition.

The comedy started when he was young, too. Nick got his first chance to do stand-up when he was just 11 on his dad's cable access channel.

After he graduated from Monte Vista High School in Spring Valley, California in 1998, it was only a matter of time before Nick would take Hollywood by storm.

Oh, and he's definitely doing his "Best Dressed" title justice!
