Trending on YouTube with over 66,000 views and counting is a tribute to Michael Jackson. But it's not just any tribute - if you're going to perform Michael Jackson, you better make sure you can take it on and have it be as spectacular as if Jackson himself was performing. Who better than the Cirque du Soleil employees?
The video features the employees performing Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us," lead by choreographer Travis Payne. Taking place in Montréal, on a cold October evening, they turned this performance into a street performance, with the employees and artists from their various shows.
The video is OKAY at best. When you think Cirque du Soleil and Michael Jackson combined, how can your imagination not run rampant on how impressive they could execute it? Since the original video of the song featured people marching, so did this version, except it lasted almost the entire video, with a flip here and there towards the end.
But you can't judge a book by its cover, because this is just a glimpse into their "Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour." Their website explains, "A riveting fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that immerses audiences in Michael's creative world and literally turns his signature moves upside down, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour unfolds Michael Jackson's artistry before the eyes of the audience. "
How can that not be a spectacular experience? With over 50 shows all over the US, this is one Cirque show Michael Jackson fans won't want to miss. Watch the trailer below:
