    Mr Jackson was very strong and powerful, and he was scary in a way, but not without a sense of humour, although it was clear that all the children had a huge amount of respect for their dad.

    Oh I love the show. I used to have all the episodes on my computer until I deleted everything (my computer crashed from all the stuff in it, lol). I love the skits.

    I just learned from Joe's book that Berry Gordy was opposed to the shows and tried t sabbotage it, but it was so successful that he eventually fell in line. Joe was a genious as Michael said. It was also his way of introducing his daughters to the public.

    I then received many offers for Jackson 5 from Las Vegas. And I had an idea - to take there all the children.
    I have engaged the most well-known producers for concerts in Las Vegas , and in 3 months prepared the children for these concerts. Motown certainly at once has found out about our plans and informed me, that they think that our shows are a mistake. Children ostensibly cannot be a success in Las Vegas. Motown also has stopped to render to us an advertising suppourt.
    Their reaction only has more strongly convinced me that I have to create something special for these concerts . I wanted all of them to prove, that not only sons, but also all my children together can show a good show.
    Therefore we had to perform not only the newest Jackson 5 hits , but also step and ballads, classical melodies and national songs. I together with the producer have developed for Janet some numbers with songs of Mae West, she and Рэнди studied to sing a duet, among others songs Sonny and Cher's "The beat goes on" and "I got you babe". Motown management has sent me a letter where has scarified my plans, but I have not allowed them to stop myself.
    The first show has taken place on April, 9. Pride overflew my heart when they in their new suits, entered in MGM Grand Hotel. And when they have came on stage, the hall has been filled to the end.
    Janet was only 7, and she was so pretty when she twisted the boa with fethers. She and Randy perfectly executed the duets. The others sang and danced - we had numbers for all tastes. Tickets have been sold out for weeks forward, and every evening ended with an ovation, the viewers applauded standing up. We have broken all records and have entered the history.
    Motown, certainly, has found out about our unbelievable success, and since this moment supported us with what it could.

    Datsymay - thank you for the note from Joe Jackson about The Jacksons Variety Show. Is it from the Joshep's book?
    You are very welcome/ Yes, the quote is from Joseph's book. I have uploaded the whole book on the main page under the heading. ' Michael Jackson's ancestors. A very interesting and detailed book. Written in Germain and translated by a german fan.
    Mr Jackson was very strong and powerful, and he was scary in a way, but not without a sense of humour, although it was clear that all the children had a huge amount of respect for their dad.

    Mike probably was being influenced by Berry at the time. But are we confusing the Vegas show to the Jaksonm variety tv shhows? They are different shows right. They did the Vegas show when they were still with Motown, but with the Jacksons, they had left Motown by then.^_^

    yeah, I watch the shows all the time!! I love them! I understand what Michael meant, though, about not wanting to do the show. But I do love them!

    In Michael's autobiography he talks about how he really hated doing the variety show. He said it was just filled with canned laughter and that people were laughing just because he was Michael Jackson. He went on to say that he isn't funny and knows he isn't funny (which i dont think is true lol). He also said how everything was so rushed and that they had to learn all of the dances and skits so quickly that he didn't have the time to perfect anything.

    I actually LOVE the show from what i've seen of it of course. I really wish I had this on dvd.

    Yeah, I love this show as well. I like pratically all the skits/performances on the show but I really loved when they all performed "On The Wall", man Michael was jamming in that one! He definitely did his thing. I also loved when the Jackson sisters performed "Fever", Rebbie in particular really shined in that one but my fave performance of all was when MJ performed "Get Happy". Who knew he could tap dance and do splits?! The man is just incredible. He never ceases to amaze me.

    I LOVED that one. It's definitely up there in top clips from the variety show. one of my other favorite tap dance ones though is the one he did with Latoya in Puttin on the Ritz. I didn't even realize that was LaToya dancing with him for months
    As bad as this sounds she was just REALLY good lol I also loved the one where the whole family performs Steppin Out with My Baby. Also the Nicholas Brothers one with the entire family kills too. I loved that little moment where he was dancing with Janet.

    I think Mike should showcase his tapping more often. I don't think most people know he (or the whole family for that matter) could do it. For the family not to have any kind of training and having to whip up those numbers in a matter of days and have it be absolutely spectacular and so proffesional looking is mindblowing.
