Flashback 1988: Sheryl Crow Performs Live With Michael Jackson


So the girl that was in the video for Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make You Make Me Feel" music video was dancer/actress named Tatiana Thumbtzen and in the video Jackson seduces her with his dancing. However, their real-life relationship not quite as it seem in the video: a tearful Thumbtzen claimed in a VH1 special that they had an affair, but she was fired from public performances of this song when their relationship started becoming public. So when the "Bad" tour was happening, Jackson needed a female singer to perform on this song and "I Just Can't Stop Loving You." A then unknown Sheryl Crow was chosen for the role. So cool to see her singing with Michael Jackson before she became a huge start in her own right.
