Combine musical genius, sudden wealth with intense media scrutiny and you can get some very freakish behavior. The original Jackson Five, driven to stardom by megalomaniac father Joseph, was a sensation. They made music that America loved and starred in not just one, but two TV series (a variety hour and a Saturday cartoon). Along the way, the rest of the boys and girls also clamored for some time in the spotlight.In chronological order, here's a quick review of their group and individual efforts. All but Tito went on to record solo -- he (wisely?) chose to play guitar and write behind the scenes. In the end, this didn't end up so much the cheesy parody I planned, but more of an homage to a very talented and ambitious family. My choice for Showdown Champion is Janet, who wins by default because of Mikey's perverse proclivities.

Yes, this does look interesting. How does it play?

Cool mix to *look* at.

I heard somewhere that Janet Jackson's great song "You're So Vain" has been covered by some singer named Carly Simon. Can that be true?
