hi guys,  
this 15 year old kid just won a talent show and is a huge hit here recently. people can't stop saying how fantastic he is.  
personaly i think he is just a michael jackson copy. ok he is only 15 bit still i do not understand the fuss is this music really that great?
i think you should the producer could be a little more creative than creating something that sounds like a jackson tune from the 80s what do you think?

well, it's not gonna be a jazz pianist's cup of tea, but if he's such a big hit, then i guess the producers know what they're doing - and after a couple beers, i'd probably dance to it :)
well, when it comes to 15 year olds, young michael jackson was something else, ridiculously talented, he already had some of his signature moves.
If I'm not back in 24 hours, call the president.

i there is no way of telling from that video.  i think for me watching the video all i know for sure is the producer has it goin on.  he could probally me make me ( a fat 50 year old white guy) look like the next  
michael jackson.
video production.

why do i say it's an extremely low budget video production?  

how many extras and dancers do you see in there? (answer=0)  
how many musicians do you see in there? (answer=0)  
how many different sets do you see in there? (answer=1)

all of those video effects that you see in there come stock with a pro video software package (like adobe premiere).

the entire project could have been done in disco boy's garage for under $500.
for 7p

yes i thought the same. a also find the video kind of low budget. but the fact is that its is 2 absoluttely top producers who wrote the tune and produces the record and video.( they also produced britney spears amongst others)
and that is what makes me surprised i thinkt with so good producers involved the result should be better and therefore i just thought it was funny to get your opinions.  
it is probably going to be a hit record but then again i think thats just because of the huge marketing and not because of great tunes.
