I wish I posted this a little earlier so you would be able to plan your evening for this. I did get the post up before the show anyway.
Being that the theme is Motown, I initially thought all the performers would be African-American. Not so, and that says a good thing to me. The main thing should be the talent and music coming from the artist. The color of skin should play no role in it.
My regular readers might know that I'm a Sheryl Crow fan and she performs in this. She is amazing at doing Michael Jackson's earlier songs. I'm listening to her version of "I Want You Back" on my Itunes as I write this. She does that song for her White House performance.
If you are reading this after the show and you watched it please let me know what you thought.
