No offense to Seidah but she had no reason to be on the show. Her segment was about the 30th anniversary of Thriller. She has nothing to do with Thriller. She worked on the next Michael Jackson album Bad.
That's a bit like bringing on Michael Beck to discuss the movie Grease because he co-starred with Olivia Newton-John in her follow up film Xanadu.
Seidah can offer reflections on Michael and should. But she's not the person to bring on for a dicussion of Thriller.
Also, it's not as though it's 100 years ago. Quincy Jones is still alive (producer), Eddie Van Halen is still alive (lead guitar on "Beat It") . . . In fact, I believe, besides Michael, only Vincent Price (does rap on "Thriller") has passed away.
So the segment was uninformative and a waste of time.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
