Dancing Inmates Think The ‘World’ Of Michael Jackson

We're all no doubt still reeling from last night's BET Awards. Notsomuch because of the usual madness that took place, but because the network sold us a false bill of goods, promising a massive Michael Jackson tribute. They went on and on about the adjustments and sacrifice and special surprises and all the time it took to put things in place. Of course I was anxious to tune in, what with all of that hype. And, we all know what happened from there. However, if BET is selling the "not enough time" excuse, I'm not buying. Not when 1,500 inmates from the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Phillipines put together a massive tribute to the Gloved One in just ten hours. Yup, 10. Granted, they had nothing but time on their hands, but still, it shows it can be done. And also, as with their previous performance, shows how much of a global reach MJ had. BET, take notes and then do better. And get the number of the prison's choreographers to help out for your next tribute (oh, and there better be another). As for the clip, I think I lost it somewhere around the time "We Are The World" comes on. Love this.
