Don't stop 'til you get enough

You'll have to click the link to see this one, but trust me it's worth it: the oldest Jackson sister Rebbie! And her one and only hit single, 1984's Centipede, which is sadly not her Pac Man Fever-style homage to the arcade hit. Nope, just a terrible dance pop song with a terrifically nonsensical early 80s video-it's got everything! Cobras that shoot lightning out of their eyes, AND tigers walking down stairs. I'm not gonna lie, I've been doing research for the show and until then I barely knew Rebbie existed, apparently she retired in the 90s and settled down with her childhood sweetheart husband and her kids...making her the most normal Jackson by a looooong mile. So, we actually have a performer in our show on Saturday, Darlinda Just Darlinda, rockin' a Jermaine solo song for her number! But sadly Rebbie didn't make the cut.
