Mariah Carey - Nick Cannon's Easter Thriller Shot Down By Churchgoers

Mariah Carey's rapper/actor husband Nick Cannon realised the importance of Easter at an early age when he got up onstage at church and attempted to perform a rendition of Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Cannon was a big fan of the King of Pop growing up and he chose to debut his Thriller performance on one of the holiest days of the year.

He recalls, "The pulpit was the stage. I remember being four years old and I had to do an Easter speech. I'd been practising all week. I had it all memorised and I was excited and wearing this bright yellow suit.

"I went up there and I did my speech but I stayed longer and started singing Michael Jackson's Thriller. It was in the middle of church and everybody was like, 'Get off the stage!' I had the bug and I didn't want to leave.

"I guess Thriller doesn't go over very well on Easter Sunday!"

The song and its iconic video is all about the ghouls and ghosts that haunt us in the night.

Now he's a dad, Easter is a big deal for himself and Carey: "You'll probably see me in an Easter Bunny costume."
