Melanie Pays Tribute To Michael Jackson

Published: Saturday 26th Jun 2010 by Trent

Melanie Fiona paid tribute to Michael Jackson on ‘The Early Show’ recently. The R&B singer performed the Jackson 5 classic ‘I’ll Be There’. Peep the performance below:

Many people tend to forget that their are two versions of this song: the Jackson 5’s and Mariah Carey’s arrangement. Fiona was clearly singing Carey’s composition of the tune and, unfortunately for her, it didn’t work completely in her favour. Still, she did her thing and it’s great to see young talent acknowledging the greatness that was Jackson.

Thoughts?

    That was a good performance; just about fulfilled its purpose.

    Many people tend to forget there are two versions of this song ?

    And who are these people who forget honey T ?

    stop thinking you have musical knowledge over everyone else who comes here simply because you landed yourself a job on samanthas blog, we are more than aware there are different versions of this song sweetie.

    Mooriah Carey would have murderd this song if she attempted singing it in her current state, that state being her no longer being able to sing live or reach her whistles or big belty notes.

    Melanie Fiona > MooMooariah Carey.

    Thats right trent honey, sit it on down.

    This is Mariah singing I’ll Be There in May during a concert in Egypt this year and it’s superior to this performance:

    @TOPMAN

    Mooriah is a shell of both the woman and performer she used to be…….

    When she trys to whistle live she fails epicly she used to be able to control her whistles……these days she doesnt know where the f*** there gonna end up…. they usually end up bumming and……… OMG don’t even get me started on her lower tones.

    Just Accept all the greats have lost their voices Fatariah Carey, Crackney even CeFLOPline dion.

    sorry if the truth hurts my sweetie……..

    @DanBOfficial

    Child, it’s obvious you are cluesless! Celine Dion is far from a FLOP sweetcakes. Do some research and then come back with something more credible. I mean I can post her accomplishments, but I’ll wait for you to do it so you can look like the idiot that you are.

  16. DANBOFFICIAL (AALIYAH/XTINA/RIHANNA) (STAN) June 27, 2010

    @TEAM WEEZY

    No one is questioning their acomplishments…okay booboo !

    Just the fact that their voices are no longer there…comprende… sweetie ?

    That was good, I don”t know why you hate so much Trent.

  19. ~TeAM WeeZY~ June 27, 2010

    @DanBOfiicial

    Hmmm, did you not refer to Celine Dion as “CeFLOPline dion?”

    Damn, you need to learn how to read and comprehend your OWN s***, huh?

    Like I said, she is FAAAAAAAAAARRRR from a flop, boo boo. Do your research and come back to try again, K?

  20. DANBOFFICIAL (AALIYAH/XTINA/RIHANNA) (STAN) June 27, 2010

    @DanBOfficial

    LMAOOOOOOOO @ your lack of response to the topic at hand (Celine being a flop)! It’s obvious you did the research and your dumbass couldn’t come with a valid response in reference to Celine flopping. LOL! You have been exposed and now you want to switch the subject to “Team Weezy’s response being weak” and LiL’ Wayne’s music! LOOOOVE IT! Damn, you are a true FOOL!

    Now, what’s this about Celine being a FLOP, again? YOU come back stronger and stay on on topic this time, babe.

  22. derek June 27, 2010
