Harry Connick Jr Presents Jackson Jive, The Medical Michael Jackson Tribute Act

by | 8th, October 2009

aweCONTINUING Anorak’s look at tributes to Michael Jackson, we bring you The Jackson Jive, on Autralian TV show Hey, Hey It’s Saturday.

Australian TV host Daryl Somers introduces the act. The crowd love the Jackson Jive. Then Somers apologises for them.

Visiting US singer Harry Connick Jr, joins the Red Faces segment to award the black faces and the white face lead signer a zero.

We then learn that the Jackson Jive first appeared on the show 20 years ago as medical students. Now they are medics. The lead singer is – irony of ironies – a plastic surgeon.

Political correctness mean they are hateful, Jackson might have found them if not entertaining then at least useful.

Lead singer Dr Anand Deva, who played Michael Jackson, says:

“It certainly was not meant to be racist in any way at all. I suspect things are probably a bit different in America in terms of what that [black face] means.”

In other news the Black & White Minstrels tribute to Jackson – The White and white Minstrels – are supporting Val Doonica on his Christmas tour.

Cue the music:
