    Michael just had a kind of voice that you will never hear anything else like, it was so unique, and as a kid, well, his voice was just amazing !
    and his stage presence was amazing

    Jermaine is however a talented guy too

    Jermaine is a wonderful singer. He didn't have the same level of talent but who does. All the brothers were good in their own way but get overlooked because Michael was Michael. That said my favorite songs are where Michael and Jermaine play off each other. I also must say I like the rawness of the Jackson 5 era vocals the best.

    There is no Michael vs Jermaine. Michael was always lightyears ahead of Jermaine in talent and I'm sure Jermaine would agree with that.
    That's interesting because I remember Jermaine once said something along the lines, that "Yes Michael was very special but anyone could have been helped/groomed into being the star of the Jackson 5." I think he was thinking that that 'anyone' could've been him.
    Michael, thank you for the music, the moves, the magic, and the memories.

    You can REALLY hear the difference in 'Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming'.
    Jermaine sounds fine...but when Mike comes in, it's like "Wooh! NOW the party's getting started!"

    Michael by leaps and bounds. He could do more with his voice. Have you heard him in I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus? His voice was simply amazing. Jermaine couldn't touch him.

    I do, however, think Jermaine was underrated. I like his voice a lot.

    You're right. Every time I hear the beginning of the song I think, "gosh, I forget what a great singer Jermaine is," but then Michael comes in and blows him away.

    I was going to vote for Jermaine, but he's already had his solitary sympathy vote in the poll so I don't need to. It's a bit cruel to put someone in competition with the King of Pop!

    Unfair anticlimactic poll.

    We all know Michael had the better more versatile voice.

    BUT

    An interesting fact people need to remember about Michael was that one of his singing influences was none other than big brother Jermaine.

    In fact, before Jermaine's voice changed a lot of people think it was Michael singing.
    Check out these old Steeltown clips to hear Jermaine's voice before puberty gave him that deeper rich tone (YouTube took down some of those clips that I wanted to better prove my point).

    Jackson 5 - RARE Rehearsal Recording (Boys and Girls we are the Jackson 5)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3nmvPhDM28

    Stormy Monday [RARE] - Jackson 5
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZlbnMWBB6g

    And for comparison here's some Steeltown Michael

    Michael the Lover [RARE] - Jackson 5
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc1WgnPyNd8

    To me, no better singers could assist Michael other than his brothers.

    Michael, but there's no doubt that Jermaine is talented as well
    Michael, words cannot begin to describe how much
    you have meant to me for so long.
    It is still so hard to believe that you are no longer with us.
    I know that you're now in a better place...but it is still so hard without you.

    Michael was by far the better singer, His voice was much stronger and had that special something

    Is there really a need for such a poll? Of course the majority will vote for Michael. :cheeky:

    I myself choose the third option since I like Jermaine's voice a lot. And I'm not too fond of tiny Michael's voice tbh.

    I have always seen Michael as a performer, not just a singer, but his voice was so versatile and powerful. He had control that Jermaine simply did not have. No competition...Michael.
