I actually thought they integrated the new rap portion into the song quite well. Could've really done without the autotune boys and Justin Bieber (who may have also been enhanced to a lesser degree by autotune).

It's a bit scary how much will.i.am and Kanye West sounded alike on the song. Who were the two mature women singing near the end of the song?

Bono would have really tied the egos together.

When they first showed just the spot of that sparkly glove, I was about to get pissed because I thought it was some douchebag like Kanye being all "Look at me! I'm wearing a glove like Michael Jackson!!!!111." Then, when I realized that they were cutting Michael's bits into the new version, I was glad. That was the best part of the whole song. Once again, the dead man bests everyone else. Also, what was up with the audio at Janet's part? You couldn't even hear her. Miley Cyrus is shouting in my ear like a dying cat, but let's turn down the volume on Janet Jackson? FAIL. Oh, and Lil' Wayne singing Bob Dylan's part? For real?

Kinda glad Bono wasn't a part of this trainwreck.

Seriously though, 'Everybody Hurts'? Did they even re-record the backing track?

Probably the worse celebrity single ever.

I thought it was bad until the autotune kicked in, then I thought it was awful.

It's bullshit that they kept the MJ clips in there. If you're going to go full retard, then do it. Starting with Justin Beiber helped, but it wasn't enough.

Nothing here tops Huey Lewis' "there's no way we can falllllll!" line. He fucking nails that. Or BRUUUUUCE's part.

I thought Barbara Streisand was good, and I like Pink. However, Pink was overpowered in this song.

Other than that, it was complete sh*t. It sounded like a clash of pop stars, and not an actual song. And that kid who opened the song was tuneless, he really sucked.

Michael Jackson is probably rolling over in his grave.

After the Justin Bieber opening, there's a solid chance he's doing something else in there.
