The Jackson Five made a cameo appearance in Michael Jackson vs Elvis Presley. They were portrayed by Bentley Green.

Information on the cameos

The Jackson Five were a popular American music family group from Gary, Indiana. Founding group members Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, Marlon Jackson and Michael Jackson (with additional member Randy Jackson replacing Jermaine), formed the group after performing in an early incarnation called The Jackson Brothers, which originally consisted of a trio of the three older brothers. They were known for a variety of hits such as "I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save", and "I'll Be There". Years later, the children revealed that their father Joseph beat them when they did not perform as he wanted them to, and was very abusive with his punishments. They split after a while, but they reunited for a reunion tour in 2012 after Michael Jackson's passing, in which they changed their name to "The Jacksons"; however, Randy did not return while the original four founders did.

Appearance in the rap battle

They appeared at the end of the line, "Every record you set, man, I beat it!" and danced behind Michael Jackson until the line, "Call me Ed Sullivan, shoot you from the waist up!"
