    Default What is Known About the J5 Las Vegas Shows?

    I know some of the things they did there were also done for the Jacksons Variety show. Does anyone know what songs were sung or what a typical show looked like?

    Did MJ sing "killing me softly" there?

    It was done like this in the Las Vegas shows? It's one of the best things they ever did those 5 minutes, imo.

    That video you posted has a great extended version of "get it together" is it fanmade?

    I believe so, yes, but not by me.

    From what I can find out, the Las Vegas concerts closely followed the format of what they were doing on variety shows at the time (such as The Cosby Show in your video). That makes sense to me, because that way, they wouldn't have had to devise a new format, learn new musical arrangements, practise new dance moves, etc.
