Jackson 5 - I Want You Back

From their ‘71 ABC TV special “Going Back to Indiana”. Special intro by The Cos. The music starts 1:23 if you can’t stand the schtick.

Sweet lord. Everything about this performance is perfect: the music, the vocals, the set, the camera work, the editing, the wardrobe.

How did we get from this brilliance to the recycled crap that is passed off as talent every week on American Idol, America’s Got Talent, etc.?
