    Thank you Mr. Alphonse for speaking out. Who is that cute little boy with the jacket on. I love the way he is doing his little dance.

    Yes that little boy was so cute. The "Man In the Mirror" perfomance was epic and the ending brings tears to my eyes everytime I watch it. He was just so beautiful

    It always amazes me that at such an early age, Michael was introducing the songs and the group--really taking the lead here.
