Temptation Disputation

Erupts Over 'My Girl'

A musical controversy is sending shockwaves through Motown -- two singers belting out their versions of the Temptations classic "My Girl" ... in an a cappella duel to the death!!!!

It all started when Harvey Levin hit the famous Hitsville Museum in Detroit Tuesday ... and was so moved by the experience of being the legendary Motown recording studio, he broke out in song ... accompanied by some sort of warped Temptations dance move.

The next day, David Ruffin Jr. -- son of Temptations lead singer David Ruffin -- challenged Harvey to a sing-off ... while standing in a back alley, somewhere in L.A.

So, we gotta ask ...

Harvey should be on trial for murder. Uh, don't quit your day job, not that you're very good at that either...

The people who edit the show should have shown more of Christie Bear's rendition of 'My Girl' on Thursday's episode. She sounded great and didn't deserve to cut off after just a few seconds.

Short, balding, tone-deaf, rhythmically challenged.... Every time Harvey sings, an angel loses its wings.

First of all you have to look at the Apple dont fall far from the tree...David Jr. was continously exposed to his daddy and the Temps, so he definitely has the upper hand. And shows his hand well.. He's a class act, Harv you couldnt carry a tune if it had handles. Some songs need to be left to the pros or their offsprings..lol My 3 year old grandson, knows the words to 3 Temp songs by heart and has their moves..I will send you a video of his work, maybe you can pick up a few moves..NOT!

People ask who the biggest screen hog. its harvey He has to find any way to get on camera, and be seen he will do anything. I think he has passed the lohans, and prince von a-hole as the the worst in who has to be in the spotlight. He can't sing, and insists on berrating our ears with his screeching. I LOVE tmz, but damn it harvey stick to hosting and stop trying to get in the spotlight.
