    Default Michael v/s Jermaine

    I posed this question on another discussion board, and now I want to ask the people here.

    Why do you think that they gave the most work to Michael instead of Jermaine? Do you think it was because Michael was younger and cute, or do you think that he was the better singer?
    I miss you so much.

    There is no Michael vs Jermaine. Michael was always lightyears ahead of Jermaine in talent and I'm sure Jermaine would agree with that. It was there father Joesph who made Michael the lead vocalist of the Jackson 5, and with Michael singing the vast majority of lead vocals. Even when the Jackson 5 were signed to Steeltown Records before they signed to Motown Michael sang at least 95% of their songs.

    Jermaine is an amazing vocalist and very underrated, but Michael vocals always had more rang and character. Plus Michael was an amazing thunderbolt of a dance from an infant, and Jermaine was never a dancer. There is no comparision, Michael's always been genius and Jermaine has always been very talented. Just live it at that.

    Nothing against Jer, but I recognize great singing when I hear it and Michael's parts/songs were just better

    just listen to 'who's loving you'... your mind will be amde up instantly. I find Michael's J5 songs so much harder to sing than his adult songs :P his voice as a child was simply amazing!

    Thank you so much Michael, from the bottom of our hearts.

    I've seen a lot of people who say they prefer Jermain's voice, but man... its not even close to me. And that's not a knock on Jermaine, who was pretty talented in his own right. It's just that MJ had a hell of a voice. And still does.

    Like Paul Williams from The Temptations & Flo Ballard from The Supremes, Jermaine's voice was too "soulful" and not as "crossover". As Motown was trying to sell to the mainstream (as apposed to Stax or Chess records, who was going for the black audience), the leads were usually given to whoever had the most "pop" sounding voice. The more pop sounding groups/singers got more promotion than more soulful/gospel sounding groups. Dancing ability has nothing to do with records or who sings what.

    Mike's. But Jermaine's has a great variety. He almost sounds like Ron Isley/Marvin in "Castles of Sand".

But when people make up stories that I don't wanna be what I am, it hurts me. It's a problem for me, okay? I can't control it. But let's reverse it. What about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become other than what they are?" -- Michael Jackson (1993)

    I think Michael stood out even more 'cause all of his brothers were pretty bad.

    Sorry to say that but it's stupid pull because they come from the same father and mother so all of them are talented.......
    Michael Jackson is my drug. I'm addicted to him. He's very important to me. It's hard to explain how someone whom I have never met before can mean so much to me. I guess Michael won't be Michael if he's not that magical. MEHDI
