True, but the kid did a great job imitating him. There are certainly better choices of entertainers with higher moral standards to emulate, but MJ could dance. I'll give him that much.

Why can't people just be happy that this guy did a good job? Good grief people...

It made him happy to do it and obviously others liked it.

What is wrong with our society to condemn him for it?

Do I like MJ? No, but I found the performance impressive. And he did a great job.

And if a raccoon did it, he'd be all over Raccoon TV. Yes, yes, we get the picture. Actually, it's nothing to do with the fact that the teen is White, it's because he's ginger.

Someone should have told the teen that impersonating the foolish clown is quite embarrassing. Though he had the dance moves right, Wacko still molested multiple young boys in his soiled Neverland love den while he was alive. It is too bad that no one had rotten eggs and tomatoes at that laughable talent contest where the disillusioned teen had gave his grasshopper performance of the dead clown. It seems he has no morals or maybe he ignores that fact that Michael Jackson was just a more famous version of Jerry Sandusky, Woody Allen, Ian Watkins, Jimmy Savile, Gary Glitter or R Kelly.

Real proud moment, dancing like a dead clown that desired having sex with passed out little tots inside of his filthy Neverland bedroom.

Oh good grief. What kind of idiot would associate this with anything but a kid with some dedication and talent. Always always ALWAYS gonna be deadbeats/losers/trolls/wannab es like you.

Of course, the standards of so called talent is pretty low when all the kid did was copy Michael Jackson's thirty year old dance steps to a pre-recorded CD of the clown. I would have been more impressed had he fronted a band or at least sung a song that he had written. Play instruments. But instead, he impersonated a dead pedophile that danced like a grasshopper.

Octopus, the teen doing what he did was a crowd-pleaser. If the same teen had done what you suggested, I probably wouldn't have even looked at the video. Try take an outsiders' perspective on things. Sometimes, an audience wants to see things it's familiar with. An example would be, when an established band appear on a TV show, people want to hear the old, familiar tunes that takes them back, or that they can sing along with. They don't necessarily want to hear the band's new tune that they're on the show to promote. It is perhaps not what the artist wishes to do, but it's what the audience wants.

Back in the eighties, the teen would have been beaten up had he danced like a flower and grasshoppin' Michael Jackson. It was considered very uncool in the Heavy Metal era. Of course, the dancing clown was mainly popular with five year olds. As the years gone by, however, kids taste changed as the trend moved towards untalented, dancing pop bimbos and laughable boy bands. It is certainly not my generation. Unfortunately, the clown sold a lot of records with Thriller so it was much easier for the recording industry to market low cost, lip syncing productions to a clueless audience that would be easily impressed by his crapola. It might be familiar but it is also overexposed, mass produced and lightweight garbage for the tasteless pop audience who cover their ears whenever they hear a guitar solo or anything that is played with instruments. Only with Michael Jackson, the music has still dated as bady as red leather jackets and highwater pants. On top of that, he is a dead peophile that raped boys between having his nose chopped up another fifty times. A disgraceful little clown like that of Charlie Chaplin's silent film character, "The Little Tramp"

Octopus, there's no convincing you, is there. You've made up your Mantra, and you're sticking with it. Who cares about heavy metal music. I don't. Not that one can't like more than one genre. MJ's music wasn't just popular with five-year-olds. That's nonsense. Teenagers/young adults, in the eighties were probably MJ's biggest audience at his height of his popularity. You can't put the word "Unfortunately", in the same sentence as "Thriller". MJ's music style HAS a place in popular culture. Stop running it down. Are you saying that electronic music is worthless because it's not played on real instruments? All that matters to me is the end product, what it sounds like to my ears. There's a snobbery, about real music versus synthetic music. If music appeals, and is made on spoons, it's all good. I haven't seen the film you mentioned. Your reference is lost on me.

No one was listening to Michael Jackson at my High School. He was on MTV but we listened to Classic Rock or eighties Heavy Metal. I think you are strictly going by the tired public relations campaigns of the clown appealing to young and old. That wasn't exactly true.

The Tramp was Charlie Chaplin's first film in 1914. He played the character in numerous silent movies. Michael Jackson loved him enough to cover his song, "Smile" Chaplin was a pedophile also. See the connection?

Octopus, you were at high school in the 1970s, so how could you have been listening to eighties music? Makes no sense.

Some perspective on this ordeal:



In the audience shots how many 5 year olds do you see?

Now compare that to someone else's idea of the over all best of the 80's videos

Just someone else, thanks, but no time right now to watch your videos. What IS your point, though? People like different things. So? I somehow don't believe kids as young as five years old were in MJ's audience at stadiums across the world. I just don't believe it.

Maybe it is not about what you like or don't like, maybe it is information for the other guy.
