OK, I promise (not really) that this is my final Soletron Flashback on Michael Jackson. If you’ve been following the site for at least a couple of months, you’ll probably know why I said that. If you haven’t been following the site (first off, where have you been?) you will not be bothered by this one bit. Actually, you won’t be bothered by this either way. This is classic. In 1968, Joe Jackson packed up a van full of kids and took them to go audition for Motown. Michael Jackson, the leader of this band of children, no more than 10 years old at the time, had more moves than James Brown, the voice of Jackie Wilson, and the demeanor of Fred Astaire.

Check out this audtion as the band covers the classic song by James Brown I Got The Feeling.
