    That is why I think MiG would be a great fit for INXS....not to wild, has a bit of originality, great voice and would blend in with the group well.
    Hopefully this will propel Marty's band, the Lovehammers, into the national spotlight and a (oh NO !!! corporate slim) record deal.He has been in that band (started it) since he was 14. Yeah, Marty is too good for them

    I guess we'll have to see how they fair with the INXS stuff. I want to see Marty's dark version of Mystify Me

    Each week I love Mig more and more. He's the reason I'm still watching this show.

    Not to be picky, but you can't really be Australian-blooded unless you are an Aborigine. Much like the United States, Australia is a country that is made up of immigrants. MiG is obviously half-Filipino, one of his parents is Filipino and the other is of some other Caucasian decent.

    I will post this again:

    Both of Mig's parents are Filipino mestizos (of spanish descent). His mother is from a very respectable family and Miggy is the absolute spitting image of his father.

    Thanks JLuvs. I've always wondered about that phrase "respectable family". This usually means rich, right. It's always made me feel uncomfortable, because doesn't it imply that those of us from working-class background are not respectable. Kind of irks me,that phrase. Nit-picking over, what do the MiG fans think of his duet of the INXS song that was on the radio? I haven't heard it yet.

    The MiG fans love it. I have been gone and haven't heard it yet. So I will give my opinion on it tomorrow if I wake up.

    Well in a nutshell MiG sounded like MiG so if you like his singing in general you'll like his Mystify rendition.

    For a more long-winded analysis:

    I think J.D.'s version is better overall but it's hard to compare the two directly. J.D.'s had more instruments playing (MiG and Jordis just had two guitars) and in his mix his vocals aren't as pronounced so his missed notes don't sound as bad (his first verse was shaky pitch-wise) and he was doing his full on Michael impersonation so I thought he captured the spirit of Michael's vocals better, though the sound impersonation could be considered bad thing by some. In contrast MiG and Jordis sounded like, well, MiG and Jordis. J.D. also didn't have to sing together with anybody like MiG and Jordis had to do -- even in his "duet" with Suzie on Never Tear Us Apart they never actually sung any lines together.

    As for MiG specifically I thought he sounded pretty good except for usual tendency to "over pronounce" certain words (a la the way he sang "city" Steve Perry-style on Baby I Love Your Way), his tendency to leave off the trailing "t" sound on some of the words, and his occasional out-of-tuneness.

    Just a note on the MiG duet...MiG is definitely the stronger voice on the "tune". Jordis is terrible.
