Brother Jermaine to judge BBC Michael Jackson show
LONDON (Reuters) - Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine, who was a member of The Jackson 5, will appear as a judge on a new BBC talent show "Move Like Michael Jackson," the public broadcaster said on Thursday.
The six-part series will be aired on BBC Three later this year.
"Michael was a superb dancer who inspired people across the world to master his moves and create their own unique routines," Jermaine said in a statement.
Executive producer for BBC Entertainment Commissioning, Karl Warner, said the show wanted to "hear from anyone who's ever been inspired by the Moonwalk, the Smooth Criminal lean or the crotch grab and find out if they can move like Michael Jackson."
Jackson died suddenly of a drug overdose on June 25. He was 50 years old.
