JacksonsOldSchool.java:15: error: class, interface, or enum expected

I'm following along Craig's Array video in the Feeling Loopy series. I am getting two errors (and yes, I have Googled them) but for the life of me I can't figure out what is wrong. I'm copying his code directly and I also don't think I am missing any curly braces.

import java.io.Console;

public class JacksonsOldSchool {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Console console = System.console();
      String[] jacksons = {"Michael", "Jackie", "Tito"
                      "Jermaine", "Marlon", "Randy"};

     console.printf("The Jackson 5 are: %n");

      for (int i = 0; i < jacksons.length; i++) {
      String jackson = jacksons[i];
      console.printf("%s Jackson %n", jackson);

Answered my own question! I was missing a comma after "Tito."

However, still confused that my error messages were pointing me in the wrong direction. Oh well.
