Although DJs nowadays start quite young, no one beats nine-year-old DJ Michelle, who recently entered the DMC World DJ Championships.

DJ Michelle, who is from Dubai, is the youngest contestant to ever compete in the event. That title was previously held by Japan's DJ Rena, who was 12 at the time of her participation.

The DMC World DJ Championships started in 1985 and the competition—usually a worldwide event held in select locations—evaluates DJs' scratching and mixing abilities. As COVID-19 continues to bring about restrictions on live events, this year's contest will mark the second year that it's held virtually.
