Here are two fantastic videos from the old Dick Clark Beechnut Show. Both performances are lip synchronizations of songs written by Berry Gordy Jr and Billy Davis. The first is a much clearer copy than we have had before of Jackie performing “Lonely Teardrops,” complete with a leap from an upper step into some splits. Berry Gordy once expressed amazement that Jackie could do this sort of thing without, uh, “hurting something.” Well, Jackie continued to father children after this video was made.

 

 

The second video is one many of us had not seen since we were teenagers, Jackie doing “That’s Why (I Love You So).” He appears just after the 1:20 timing mark.
