As for Michael’s rat collection, he mentions that he has over 100 rats, and one of the other brothers even has a snake as a pet a while ago. After the chat, the group returns to the stage to perform “Whatever You Got, I Want.” This upbeat and energetic song once again showcases their incredible talent and ability to sing & dance beautifully.
Overall, The Jackson 5’s appearance on The Johnny Carson Show is a fantastic musical performance and a fun and lighthearted conversation with the group. It shows their charisma and charm and how they are not just talented musicians but also relatable and down-to-earth people.
