He belongs to us and we shared him with everybody else.

… It didn't make a difference what he looked like.

It matters what he sounded like."After an evening featuring a number of performances covering the music of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, including a Jaime Foxx Moonwalk and a rendition of signature hits ABC, The Love You Save, and I Want You Back performed by New Edition, the emotionally shaken singer took to the stage, with host Foxx accompanying her.
