There is no other way to say it. Michael Jackson’s much anticipated appearance last November 15 at the World Music Awards absolutely failed to live up to expectations. The many Michael Jackson fans were very disappointed with his performance. Thankfully it looks like Jacko himself admits that it is time to move on.
It seemed like he didn’t even prepare himself for this “come back”. His voice was not in good condition. He struggled to hit the high notes and the sound inexplicably disappeared half way through his number. The audience was very unhappy that he did not perform “Thriller” as expected. Instead he sang “We are the World” with a children’s choir. “Boo! Boo!”, went the crowd. Some fans demanded refunds.
So what is next for the former “King of Pop” now that his music career seems to be at a low point? It would seem that Michael Jackson has decided to diversify. He’ll try to make a name for himself in Hollywood.
No, acting isn’t what he’s going into. He wants to go into producing. He wants to make films that can be enjoyed by anyone, irregardless of age.
He has always had great music videos. Hopefully he’ll be able to make great films and shows indeed. You never know. He has after all gone from being the youngest member of the Jackson 5 to achieving a major solo career where he earned the title “King of Pop”.
No matter what happens though, Michael Jackson will definitely remain unforgettable and definitely has a place in our history books.
