If they wanted to view a video for Michael's vocals, they could have just web search for the song itself. I do that all the time. When I want to listen to a song, I search for the song, not for performances or music videos. So, most likely, the people who clicked and viewed the video wanted to see the video, not just listen to vocals. And if they thought the performance sucked, I can't see them given a positive rating just because they happen to like the song.
Also, no one is assuming anything. We just said it was viewed 10 million times and has a high score. We know Youtube is not the end all to say what is popular, unless you have proof that someone has been cooking the numbers saying that they are inflated is an opinion.
So true. A good example is Miley Cyrus "we can't stop". Although a lot of people loved this song, the approval rating for the video was only 58%. People know how to differentiate between the song and the video. The fact that so many people gave a positive rating to the billboard performance means that they liked it.
