Millions and millions of people watched Michael Jackson’s star-studded memorial service yesterday, and it ran the gamut from touching and sweet to ridiculously overblown (Really, Magic Johnson?  Michael Jackson made you a better point guard?).  But, as WWTDD noted, nothing beat ol’ Crazy Eyes McGee here.  He got them wild eyes, like a horse you gotta shoot (video after the jump).

The other video below is Jennifer Hudson’s performance of “Will You Be There,” which I thought was probably the best part after the crazy eyes.  However, if you’re into this sort of thing, check out Broken Cool’s excellent list of the top ten moments from the memorial.  It’s got everything from Brooke Shields talking about her friendship with MJ to Paris Jackson crying as she says she loves her daddy.  It really helped humanize Jackson for me.  Or maybe “humanize” isn’t quite the right word.  How about “de-freakify”?
