    NO CONTROVERSY !!!
    History is made, when Al & Spike can only BLAME themselves for the fact that they can not dance.

    I don't know, Rev, but M. J. was a symmetrical dancer with great balance. What the hay is going on here?

    Let’s be totally honest! These guys ain’t got nothing on Anderson Cooper’s dance moves. Let’s have Anderson get up and do the Moonwalk (with a little pressure from Erica Hill). If Anderson does...the Earth will be peaceful for 1 minute.

    Spike: "You know Billy Jean was not his lover."
    Al: "Now that's a knee slapper!"
    Spike: "I wonder if she'll get the kids."

    It's hard to tell whether it's MJ's spirit that moves these cast of characters or something else, I just hope neither grabs their crouch!

    Lee: "BIllie Jean is not my lover!" Sharpton: "He sure ain't my lover neither!"

    Might as well dance now; at the rate Hollywood's dying, we're probably next.

    Sharpton: "The Apollo ain't never seen dancing like this!" Lee: "And let's hope it never does again!"

    Al Sharpton and Spike Lee tries to calm the angry Michael Jackson fans by singing the ABC song.

    Al Sharpton: If Hillary could have bust 'ed a move like this she would have won the Democratic nomination.

    Taking a break from helping Joe Jackson promote his new record label, Sharpton finds a moment to celebrate Michael and apparently finds it a real knee-slapper!

    Spike Lee can get Al Sharpton to dance on camera, but Kelly Ripa and Ellen still can't get Anderson Cooper to dance.
