Casting by Simon Cowell:
Shaheen shot to fame earlier this year after singing the Jackson 5 hit Who\’s Lovin\’ You on ITV\’s Britain\’s Got Talent and the Jackson family has chosen him to pay tribute to the late singer in the most spectacular celebrity send-off of all time.
Is it too desperately cynical of me to think there\’s a quid pro quo here?
That we might end up with a Jackson 4 tour (or all the siblings) promoted by Cowell, perhaps in his new joint venture with Phillip Green?
You give Shaheen a shot at global exposure and….?
