Fatone tells Launch.com his opinion of Sisqo "He's a very, very talented
guy". Joey adds "He's a very, very good entertainer. In fact, I've never
really seen him perform except when we saw him in Germany when we did a
show. He's a very, very great performer -- almost a little bit like a Michael
Jackson-ish kind of show. He's very poppy as far as dancing is concerned;
he's always making everything big and dramatic and he tries to touch the
people that are in a crowd all the way back in the cheap seats, so he's
a very, very talented guy"

April 15, 2000 - Sisqo appeared
on Saturday Night Live last night and perhaps because of the accussations
