London, England (BANG) - Michael Jackson has demanded all the children in his choir know sign language. The "Thriller" singer is due to kick-off his 50-date residency at London's O2 arena next month and has sent an email telling promoters AEG the requirements he wants for his team of young singers.

If your kid was in the choir would you even allow your child to perform on stage with this person?? I know I wouldn't.

He just likes kids that are good with their hands.

I think it's disgusting that anyone would promote, produce, or allow this pediphile to make any money off of the public after what he has done. I hope everyone involved goes to H-E double hockey sticks before the day is over.

Does he think we have forgotten all that has gone on because he has been out of the limelight for a little while??

His pedophile problems aside, is there some problem with his requirement that they can sign? I get the feeling the OP has a problem with that.

What kind of parent allows their child to work with MJ? It's the same as offering your child on platter.

I think he's making these demands in hopes that the venue will have to cancel the concert. I still don't think he plans to put on the concerts; if he does, he'll have to lip-sync (the nose jobs and his alleged ailing health have changed his voice). But I guess if he puts on a big enough show everyone will forget about him and will focus on all the kids doing sign language in hopes there are actually deaf people in the audience.

I agree.

I learned sign language simply because I had a deaf friend. It's a beautiful language.

I have problems with MJ and kids... but not kids in a choir singing while using sign language.
