Do you think Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer ever?


MJ is the greatest entertainer that I know. He performed with passion and magic (even his moves were magical). He knew how to increase people’s anticipations. He lived his life in music and shows. Even his strange appearances contributed to the beauty of his shows. And no doubt, the emotional impact he had on his fans is unmatched by any performer. He could make the crowds shed tears with touching performances. He is the King of Entertainment.
