  • Another one of those episodes where Sonny was this close to winning the battle of hard fought bickering between the Bonos!

    I'm serious, what I said in the 'summary', before. Sonny was joking by pretending to give Cher all these complements about how wonderful her career was, she was a singer, actress, model, blah, blah, blah . . . Then he got close up to her and said something like saying 'Got ya' and then he falls off the stage laughing and the audience cheers and claps until Cher strikes back with a killer (rude) comment to Sonny. Darn it! I hate it when Cher wins! Then how they were talking to young Michael Jackson! He was way different! He was black, bushy hair, and kinda looked good, until he got all that surgery and stuff - now he looks Chinese. But then he joked about Sonny not being a grown up due to how short he was. Then his song, Through the Window, I thought that was a real great song! Man, he was a good singer, him and the Jackson 5. And then, Cher sings VAMP, as always.moreless
