Surprisingly, there are so many celebs who went from singing to acting.

I think it's really cool to see people venture out into new projects and these celebs have definitely proven that they can excel at anything they set their mind to.

Who said you can't have it all, right?

Here are some celebs who went from singing to acting and were absolutely great at it:

1. Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera made her feature film debut in Burlesque, one of my all-time favorite movies.

I love that she got to show off her vocals (quite fabulously) in this film as well!

She was also joined by music legend Cher.

Both singers could easily become movie stars!2

This is just one example of celebs who went from singing to acting.

2. Katharine Mcphee

Katharine McPhee's been on TV so much that people sometimes forget that she came from American Idol!

From appearances on CSI: NY, Community, and Family Guy, Katharine's definitely made her mark in acting.

I was obsessed with her NBC show Smash and was devastated when it was canceled!

However, now you can see Katharine every Monday night on CBS's Scorpion!

3. Adam Levine

It seems as though Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine can really do it all.

Not only is he a successful singer, he's also got some serious acting skills.

Adam was in American Horror Story back in 2012 and even starred in the indie film Begin Again alongside Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Hailee Steinfeld.

4. Jessica Simpson

Although it seems like Jessica isn't doing much of either nowadays, she definitely had a career in both music and movies.

She made her acting debut in That '70s Show and went on to star in The Dukes Of Hazzard, Employee of the Month, and more.

5. Mariah Carey
