La Toya Claims The Jackson Throne

The weight of the Jackson legacy now rests squarely on La Toya's slender shoulders. While Janet continues to visit third world nations in search of fans old enough to remember her last hit, Joseph's favourite daughter proudly represented the clan at Sunday night's Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales - bringing some much-needed credibility to an event otherwise lumped with has-beens like Craig David and Alexandra Burke. I knew the 55-year-old triple threat would step up to the plate and show the world that talent and beauty can co-exist but nothing could have prepared me for what transpired.

After a lifetime of living in the shadows of her slightly more successful brother and sister, La Toya finally stepped into the light and proved that it shoulda been her. The Dutch hitmaker's covers of "In The Closet" and "Jam" were so powerful and moving that no official footage has leaked. Obviously they are keeping all the good stuff for the DVD but a couple of devoted fans managed to film a couple of minutes of Toy's triumphant moment. Watch in awe as the new face of the Jackson dynasty radically improves two of her much-loved brother's worst songs with a little help from fellow R&B legend Heavy D. At this point, I think it's fair to say that Janet could never.

There, we just got ROCKED!

Poor Janet - she's officially more irrelavant than Rebbie now!

When is the HD footage of this coming out?

This Is REALLY It!

I think these were the perfect song choices for her... the right vocal register, the right amount of talk-singing... Whoever thought of pairing her with these songs, I bow to thee!!

I hope Toy releases these songs as singles since she's clearly already recorded them. ; )

I don't think we'll get HD until after the concert is released on DVD. And even then I don't think the world is ready for Hi-Def Toy!

lol, let me know when LaToya steps out of Michael's shadow and builds her own legacy, like Janet has. Then that might have something that resembles a shred of credibility.

Cardiff is still recovering from the multiple Toygasms experienced!
