Jacko wants Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity as dance partners for O2 gigsJune 1st, 2009 - 2:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 1 (ANI): Pop star Michael Jackson wants Britain’s Got Talent winners Diversity to perform with him on stage.
He is said to be so excited about the boys’ victory that he wants to see them dancing in his upcoming This Is It UK shows at the O2 Arena in East London.
Simon Cowell has hinted that talks regarding Jackson’s plans have begun by saying on Saturday night that the BritainsGot Talent winners could perform with the Thriller star.
It means they could be dancing alongside Jackson when he begins his nine-month residency at the O2 Arena next month.
“Michael has already seen what the boys can do. He was captivated with Susan Boyle so he had an interest in the show,” the Mirror quoted a source close to the star as saying.
“But when Diversity came up on the outside rail he was mesmerised. Everyone knows Michaels performances are as much about the dancing as they are his music and Diversity would only add to the magic.
“They are the hottest thing in the country at the moment, and if everything goes well and Michael takes them on they could be one of the hottest things on the planet,” the source added.
Choreographer Kenny Ortega, who is putting together the O2Arena show for Jackson, is also said to be keen to see Diversity perform alongside the ‘Thriller’ star.
However, it is said that Jackson’s plan may turn out to be a major setback for last years BGT runners-up, Jacksontribute act Signature.
The duo dancers Suleman Mizra, 30, and 35-year-oldMadhu Singh had previously been hotly tipped to perform in the This Is It shows. (ANI)
