In what will surely be a major coup for Atlanta, Island president of Urban music Jermaine Dupri plans to bring the newly reunited Jackson 5 (Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie) to Atlanta for his big New Year's bash at Studio 72. This means nothing to anyone under the age of 35 who don't have a clue how huge the Jackson were to young black kids growing up in the 70s. If Jermaine can make it happen he will be the king - bigger than Jay Z, bigger than Kanye West, bigger than God.
Jermaine made the surprise announcement on his radio show on V-103 over the weekend. He plans to empty out the club as the Jackson 5 descend from the sky in a helicopter. The Jackson 5 will then join sister Janet Jackson and Jermaine as they enter the club. Of course pandemonium will ensue as everyone attempts to get back inside. But it will be a night to remember!
