The King of Pop has still got it — and so does Glee!
Last week's Michael Jacksonepisode was a huge win for the crew behind the FOX musical comedy. Not only was it the most watched episode of the season, but it also generated the highest music sales! With their ten tracks, all MJ themed, the show sold 405,773 new tracks at iTunes and all are in the top 30 of iTunes Top Songs Chart. The largest seller was Naya Rivera and Grant Gustin's cover of Smooth Criminal, selling 108K all on it's own. In fact, it ranks as the 3rd highest debut for a Glee song so far in Season 3, behind We Are Young and Rumour Has It/Someone Like You.
Not too shabby! Bet that makes everyone involved on the music end of things feel really good!
Everyone who really loves music remembers the first time they saw or heard Michael Jackson. He is one of the musical legend of this generation and will forever remain in the conscience of future artists to come.
Which is why it made perfect sense that Glee, a show built on the foundation that music is power, would pay tribute to him. Last night's episode was everything Michael was: fun, surprising and filled with music!
Check out the video (above) to go behind-the-scenes of the episode and see what the cast had to say about performing classic MJ numbers!
Now that Dr. Conrad Murray's trial has ended, Jackson estate executor John Branca has approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito Picture Company about putting together a Michael Jackson biopic.
If all goes according to plan, the project will reportedly "only cover certain periods of the late singer's life."
Pollock has confirmed that he IS in early talks with the Jackson estate, but no deal has been solidified…yet.
What do U think? Would U like to see an MJ biopic???
They've had a rough gig the last two years, especially in the last six weeks. We can see why they would be pissed.
You've probably heard all about the documentary MSNBC has put together following the manslaughter trial ofMichael Jackson. As you might have already heard, MJ's family isn't pleased that this doc is going to air and adding to the list of disgruntle folks is Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team. Seems they willingly participated in the doc, under the assumption they would get paid for their time. They have and will not be.
In fact, only Dr. Murray was compensated by the doc crew for his time. He got a whopping $1. Breaking the bank!!!
On top of this mayhem, Murray's lead attorney, Ed Chernoff, is also reportedly ready to leave the case entirely, as he wishes to go back to Houston and make some money, since this case has put him under in more ways than one.
Sucks for these guys. All that work and nothing to show for it. Not even the pleasure of selling their story.
