Danny Gokey Forgets the Words to Billie Jean

I completely blew past Danny Gokey’s performance of “Billie Jean” at Summerfest when I was picking through videos for his homecoming post. Because, well, it sucked.

Danny barely gets through the first verse before he forgets the words. He quickly gives up and lets his background singers take over, until he abandons the song altogether to launch into some crazy gospel riffing.

Why would he perform a song he barely knows in front of thousands of people? It’s probably the same logic that compels him to sing an Aerosmith song that’s totally out of his range.

Unlucky for Danny, Vote for the Worst posted the vid over the weekend, and now it’s gone a bit viral, with both Idolator and EW picking up on the snark.

Danny is turning into Sanjaya. And still, he could win this thing…
