Michael Jackson can’t dance anymore?

Posted March 30, 2009 by JJSaidIt Staff |Category: Michael Jackson



LIONEL RICHIE has advised MICHAEL JACKSON to concentrate on his vocals during his live comeback run – because fans are more interested in hearing his hits than seeing him moonwalk.


Jackson is currently preparing to kick off his This Is It shows at London’s O2 Arena this summer and is reportedly spending hours rehearsing his signature dance moves ahead of the 50-date run.


But Richie insists that dancing will be harder on Jackson now that he is 50 years old.

So he has urged his fellow pop star to make the concerts memorable for the audience by delivering impressive vocal performances instead.


Richie says, “He’s not that 25-year-old or 30-year-old anymore so he will have to discover some things about himself that he didn’t quite want to face up to I’m sure, but what he does have is a mound of hit records.


“He has to just get it in his head that we are on that stage because people want to see us singing those songs.


“Whether you moonwalk or skywalk or float in from the back of the stage, that’s all extra added attractions, but the most important thing is to pick up the microphone and sing Thriller, that’s all that matters.


We would bet money that Michael Jackson can still out dance any younger pop star. 


He might have a heart attack afterwards, but he would definitely win.  Do you think anybody can out-dance MJ?

    I feel lionel but i disagree… People want to see mike dance. wether he should or not depends on mike and his ability. Me personally I would understand if he dropped off a lot of the dance moves.

    I know that Richie is just trying to be a friend, but he has no idea. As much as fans die of excitement when they just see a glimpse of MJ, when that man moves…its ALL over. And just because he’s 50, doesnt mean anything. Quincy Jones was completely rambunctious when he was 50 yrs old, doing EVERYTHING a producer/composer could do, and never broke a sweat. Michael Jackson has been performing since he was a small child so him not being able to perform is just a silly notion. Im not saying that he’s gonna be dancin’ like he was in 1989, but Michael Jackson is Michael Jackson. He is known for his dancing, maybe more so than his singing. But Richie’s right in one way for sure, people just want to see Michael Jackson on that stage. Thats all that really matters. He could just stand there smile and wave and people would go nuts simply because, he IS Michael Jackson.

    Sad TRUE statement… except he definitely DIDN’T WIN!

    “He might have a heart attack afterwards, but he would definitely win. Do you think anybody can out-dance MJ?”

    Looks as if the LEACHERS who drugged him while ROBBING him of his valuables DID out dance him and the Authorities on this one. How better to ROB a person than to control his memory and where he keeps or has put things while commatosed STONED,zombified or asleep most of the time while their SCAM is in full motion! Lord please EXOSED all these dishonest TAKERS ASAP, have mercy upon Michael and his hurting life and Keep him in Your Loving care for all eternity. RIP Michael. I love and miss you dear. ALWAYS-carol
