While the news of Michael Jackson’s return to the stage has largely been greeted by mass positivity, there seems to be select arms of the media, as well as the public, who seem to question whether today’s Michael can still ‘thrill’ like times of past. Though being snapped in wheelchairs and looking somewhat frail in recent years hasn’t helped his cause, MJ hasn’t actually had a wack performance or flopped on the dancing tip for folk to be so steadfast in their ‘he can’t do it’ stance.
A lot of MJ’s more recent work and performances have unfairly been overlooked for one reason or the other, yet this performance of Billie Jean at his 2001/2002 30th Anniversary special, shows that even as the Michael of today he can still deliver one hell of a performance. THIS is the Michael I’m expecting to show at the London 02 this summer. This is the Michael that I really feel will silence the naysayers. Roll on July!
