Footloose Friday - VI

Anoop Desai's rather disastrous performance of Michael Jackson's Beat It! on American Idol transported me to the living rooms of my growing up years. Our single-speaker Two-in-One (it had a radio and a cassette player) spewed out a tinny Michael Jackson - venomous in Beat It!, regretful (was that what it was? not really sure now) in Billie Jean, scary in Thriller. We danced and sang (much like Anoop, and I know we were nothing short of silly) and generally drove our parents nuts.

It also made me want to watch this video at once - Suleiman Mirza and Madhu Singh channeling Michael Jackson.


The video has become unavailable. Here's a link to it instead.

Fun video. I hope they won! You may have already seen this, but my friend from Bangalore told me about another Michael Jackson homage, Indian Thriller.
