Watching TV.

So, I'm watching the Michael Jackson 30th Anniversary special tonight. I was a little leery at first about the format, doing something of a "Michael Jackson tribute" to start off, with a number of artists performing MJ songs, before he then takes the stage, but I have to say I'm impressed. Most of the artists are doing a good job.

I did find one thing funny, though. . . the "Man in the Mirror" cover. First of all, from what I've been able to see from the cameras, the crowd is fairly young, the majority of it being under 30, I'd say. When 98 Degrees came out, there was some cheering. When Usher came out, there was more cheering. When Luther Vandross came out, most of the crowd were on their feet, cheering about three times as loud as they had for the 98 Degrees and usher. Popularity is an interesting thing, in any crowd, I suppose. ;-)

Looking forward to seeing Michael with the Jackson 5, and solo. Good show so far, though.
