She's a little bit country, he's a little bit rock and roll. With a hit variety show, Donny and Marie Osmond were America's favorite brother and sister—millions tuned in every week.

Their older brothers—Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay—paved the way as regulars on the legendary Andy Williams Show. Donny made his solo debut at age 5 and wowed Andy's viewers. When Donny joined his brothers' famous group, Osmond mania swept the globe and his career skyrocketed.

Donny and Marie were launched as a twosome in 1975. An ABC executive was so impressed, he signed the teens to a primetime deal. In 1976, the squeaky clean siblings made history as the youngest entertainers ever to host their own variety show and Friday nights became synonymous with Donny and Marie. It was four solid seasons of family fun with guest appearances by the Osmond Brothers and the biggest stars of the day.

Watch Relive the memories as Donny and Marie sing "A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock and Roll."

Thirty years later, Donny and Marie perform together again, singing a medley of their biggest hits on Oprah's stage!
