The Prosecution Rests, Your Honor
Well, we told you earlier this week, and last year too, that Michael Jackson could sing. When Nixon was President.
The Jackson Five on The Ed Sullivan Show
Poor Jermaine. That's him singing call and response with his little brother and playing that crummy Gibson bass. Plaid pants with cuffs and big flares were all the rage then, so be try not to be too hard on him. Jermaine was the original lead singer, and if he's not actually playing that song, he could be; his hands are fingering the correct notes we're hearing. It does at least have a cord plugged into it.
Jermaine's like the swimsuit model that has a child and shows up for her first postpartum photo shoot and notices the catalog has a scrawny teenager with a pneumatic rack on the payroll now. Days. Are. Numbered.
Jackie and Marlon look like they're gonna get a beating after the show.
