Jermaine Jackson has admitted that he is currently on a pursuit to find five Australian musicians to form a modern day Jackson 5.
Jackson believes that there is a gap in the market for an all singing, dancing, and musical act, stating, “You just don’t see the kind of band or that kind of mania that the Jacksons created any more.”
He then went on to add, “We need an act that can electrify an audience of any size and bombard the charts with number one songs. It’s not enough to sing or dance or both … you have to blow them away with your performance and the quality of your music.”
Jackson then concluded, “It all has to come together in a perfect performance. That is what causes crowds to go wild and super stars to emerge above the rest.”
Jackson is going to use his website JJ5TV.com and various social media websites to help find, select, train and mentor the five musicians. He will then ask those people who view the hopefuls to help him select the band, which he will ultimately call JJ5.
Jermaine Jackson will then help them record their debut single and they will then embark on a world tour in a bid to eclipse Jackson and his brothers efforts.
In February Jackson changed his surname to “Jacksun.” A Los Angeles judge gave the final approval to the decision as Jacksun citied “artistic reasons” for the change in his name.
It was thought that Jackson looked to change his name because of reported troubles with the family, which started to exist over the estate of Michael Jackson and the car of his mother.
In July 2012 police visited 82 year-old matriarch Katherine Jackson’s home after it had been reported that “a physical altercation had occurred of misdemeanour battery.”
Do you think Jermaine Jackson will be able to recreate the Jackson Five?
