I must be the odd one out, cause although I don't HATE the guy or anything as he seems pretty normal and grounded, he really is VERY VERY over-rated. I think on a scale of one to ten he'd be lucky to crack 3, maybe 4 for all round talent.

I truly hate his music as it jars when I hear it. The guy has a weedy, bland voice and his dancing is so tacky and 'high school', it's embarrassing.

I think he's very talented and one of the best thats out there doing it right now. He sings, dances, plays some instruments, writes, acts, etc. and does them all very well. People dont have to shove his prescense down your throat for someone to take notice of him. I saw his show at MSG last month and it was pretty incredible on how exciting it was and how entertaining he was.
in my book

Plus, the guy did "Dick in a Box" which earns him at least a little respect.

Poison covered Sexy Back on their new album.

I have a friend who's totally into JT... he says he's what Michael Jackson should be like now. Yes... it's "pop"... so what, it's good music. I don't know... I'm drunk and just got back from the pub...
