    Do you remember Elladj Baldé? Elladj is a Canadian Ice Skater who came to Michael Jackson fans’ attention in 2011 when he performed a routine on Michael Jackson’s music.

    Since 2018, Elladj retired but his love for skating and … Michael Jackson hasn’t stopped!

    Today he is making sensation on TikTok and instagram showing off his moonwalk… on ice and boy, this is impressive! Just look at it!

    Just for a reminder and also just because this routine is beautiful, just watch his performance as “Michael Jackson” in a competition in 2013.

    Default The Weeknd: 1 Michael Jackson Hit Is the ‘Blueprint’ for His Music

    Although his heyday was in the 1980s, Michael Jackson continues to inspire artists to this day. For example, The Weeknd cited one of the King of Pop’s No. 1 hits as the blueprint for his music. Here’s a look at the creation of the song — and why Jackson means so much to The Weeknd.

    Michael Jackson crafted this No. 1 hit with Billy Idol’s guitarist

    It all starts with Steve Stevens. Stevens was Billy Idol’s guitarist. During an interview with Billboard, he recalled what it was like to work with Jackson.

    “My whole thing is working with the artist, that’s why I picked up a guitar — I saw Elvis and Scotty Moore on TV and I went, ‘Oh, look, it’s a singer and a guitar player,'” Stevens recalled. “And that’s the way it’s always been for me. And then I got a call about another record, and the artist wasn’t there, and I was like, “Woah, really?” It was just me and the engineer, and it’s just not for me. There’s no joy in that. So of course, my question was, “Will Michael be there? Quincy kind of laughed and said, ‘Yeah, it’s his record.’ He thought it would be an odd thing for him not to be there. I guess Michael is one of those guys that no matter what went down on the record, even if it was a miniscule little percussion part, he was there for every note. And that’s the way it should be.’”

    Together, Stevens and Jackson helped create one of Jackson’s most famous songs: “Dirty Diana.” “Dirty Diana” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Aside from “Beat It,” “Dirty Diana” might be Jackson’s most famous rock song.

    The ways ‘Dirty Diana’ impacted The Weeknd

    Millions of people around the world are fans of Jackson, however, Rolling Stone reports he has a very special place in The Weeknd’s heart. The Weeknd is from an Ethiopian family and he was very moved by “We Are the World” because it was a charity single for Ethiopia. He said when he wasn’t listening to Ethiopian music at home, he was usually listening to Jackson’s songs.

    In addition, The Weeknd told Variety that “Dirty Diana” served as the blueprint for his music. After all, “Dirty Diana” is a song that’s both dark and sexual, much like many of The Weeknd’s songs, from “In the Night” to “The Hills” to “False Alarm.” In addition, The Weeknd released his own version of “Dirty Diana” which features electronic flourishes that weren’t in the original.

    The Weeknd included his rendition of the song on his mixtape Echoes of Silence under the title “D.D.” Comparing his cover to the original, it’s shocking how similar The Weeknd’s singing style is to Jackson’s. The King of Pop had a massive influence on many pop and R&B artists — and The Weeknd is no exception.

    Default Myanmar protests: “They Don’t Care About Us”

    After the Military coup happened on February 1 in Myanmar, people have been protesting against the coup and the tyranny of the military against the people.

    The protests over the coup have been the largest since the so-called Saffron Revolution in 2007, when thousands of the country’s monks rose up against the military regime.

    Protesters include teachers, lawyers, students, bank officers and government workers.

    Water cannons have been fired at protesters, and the military has imposed restrictions in some areas, including curfews and limits to gatherings.

    The UK, EU and Australia are among those to have condemned the military takeover.

    UN Secretary-General António Guterres said it was a “serious blow to democratic reforms”.

    US President Joe Biden has threatened to reinstate sanctions.

    Meanwhile, the military have been using real ammunition against protesters causing death.

    A dance group took the street in the middle of the protests two days ago and started to dance to “They Don’t Care About Us” by Michael Jackson.

    “While They Don’t Care About Us has risen from the ashes of 1995 to become a song that continues to offer a voice to the disenfranchised, it’s a shame that Michael is not here to see the true, lasting impact of what he created.” – Pez Jax taken from “The Story of HIStory“

    All our prayers and support to the people of Myanmar.

    Default ‘Thriller’ dancer helps in Powell dance studio

    In addition to the Powell High School dance team’s recent successful performance at the State Spirit Competition, dancers had another neat experience last fall.

    Marcea Lane — one of the lead dancers in the music video for Michael Jackson’s hit song “Thriller” — visited Victoria’s School of Dance south of Powell for a Sept. 25 workshop. Victoria Danovsky, the head of the program, described the experience as “unforgettable.”

    Danovsky met Lane at a dance workshop years ago, and the two instantly formed a bond. Lane had never visited Wyoming before, so she decided to come to Powell and host a clinic.

    “It was really cool,” Danovsky said. “I wanted to give the kids a feel of what it’s like to have someone like that come in and dance. It was a pretty neat deal.”

    Lane taught the junior and senior teams the legendary “Thriller” dance, as well as other routines. She also awarded two of Danovsky’s students — Demi Danovsky and Anna Smith — with scholarships to attend a dance convention called Revive.

    Danovsky said she plans to make the workshop with Lane an annual occurrence every fall.

    “She is an amazing and talented woman, and we were lucky to have her,” Danovsky said.

    Default Re: MJ Good News Thread

    On June 25th 2009, the world lost the greatest entertainer of all time, the king of pop Michael Jackson. His legacy, especially that of which he built in the 80s, still resonates in modern pop to this day.

    Road Trip, the newest single by Brandon Coleman, is no exception to Michael’s impact on music. The tune is an honest homage to the late king of pop in the most fun way possible. It immediately starts in this super fun up-beat groove that’s far more reminiscent of a light-hearted The Weeknd. However, when the chorus comes around, Michael’s footprint is all the more evident, and in doing so makes the song shine all the much more.

    The opening lyric, “Girlfriend/ I’m gonna tell your boyfriend” is a direct reference to MJ’s song “Girlfriend” off the 1979 album Off The Wall. There’s even at one point in the background vocals, at about 1:26 where Brandon does a “vocal hiccup” exactly like Michael would, and truth be told, a huge smile sprung on my face when I first caught that. I’ve been listening to Michael’s music for longer than I can remember, and his music will always hold a special place in my heart. So already, I’m biased on this song, it being so reminiscent of the king of pop’s music, but this song is absolutely beautiful even if you don’t hold the same nostalgia for the greatest entertainer of all time.

    Brandon’s delivery is silky smooth and alluring, as he traverses beautiful melodies sung in chest voice and falsetto. The consistent groove has made me tap my foot the entire time absorbing the song and writing this review – the rhythm is real and catchy as can be. The groove will surely get stuck in your head for days to come, and the product as a whole is a wonderful look back on retro dance-pop and modern-day R&B all combined into one. It’s a product of the love for the music that inspired Brandon Coleman, mixed with his artistic take on the genres he tackles in this wonderful track. It’s an irresistible tune that truly deserves the spotlight of a classic dance-pop song.
