Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson’s father, finally admitted to spanking Michael and the other children. But I have to agree with Joe, it’s was not something so out of the ordinary. It was what people did back then. They beat their kids to keep them in line. However there is a difference between beating and abusing. It does not matter how you do it, some children are not meant to be beaten and they are traumatised no matter how innocuous it might appear. Michael Jackson was one of those tender souls.
There were no surprises on America’s Got Talent, four of the strongest performers sailed through to the finalists. It’s hard to predict who will win. There are obviously two strong singers and two strong acts. My favourite and the one I will be routing for is Michael Grimm. He is an incredible performer with a voice to die for. I also does not want him to disappoint his grandparents. He wants to do something nice for them and I hope he gets the opportunity to do so. I am sure he has already done something more than money can buy, made them so proud of him being on TV and all. Jackie Evancho has the voice of an angel and with or without a win she is destined to star. She is wonderful but has some time to shine. Grimm is getting up there. I hope America takes these things into consideration.
Anna could not conceal her tear of disappointment for falling down during the performance last evening. They were trying out something new but she got up and finished the dance. Good job – you go girl.
