    I love seeing him go on stage to make the audience sing because it's hilarious. Just watch.

    2:45



    and then there's another moment at 3:27 and 4:38


    He's so sweet about it but he still laughs...I just

    There's also another moment when he let a fan dance next to him during one of his concerts. She was doing this awkward dance move and he was trying to not laugh at her...I can't find the video again but it was just funny to me lol.
    I actually do.

    I'm not sure if this is small, but I absolutely positively love how every Billie Jean Breakdown is different.
    Some of the stuff he did during those breakdowns didn't even look possible for a human to do, but Michael did, and I've never seen anyone else do it since.
    It was always just him, the spotlight, and the crowd.
    All of the Billie Jean Breakdowns are such iconic legendary moments.

    People that got to see him live are so damn lucky.
    All I've ever had is Youtube.

    ^^But thank God for YouTube. It'll ensure that his (and so many others) performances will live forever.

    The way he dances with kids in the "History tour - Behind the scenes" video. They look like a bunch of friends partying. Not like "the biggest star ever + fans".

    It's barely a few seconds long so I do not know if it's worth posting. Fast forward to 25:37.

    May you rest in peace Karen Carpenter, Janis Joplin, Terence McKenna, Jonah Lomu, George Michael

    I love when he smiles but not for show but when he's totally himself. You can see it during the tours (like when he's sitting on the case before Billie Jean in Copenhagen and just watches the crowd) or on This Is It when he's performing I'll Be There for example. This true happiness when he's 'at home' (meaning on stage, doing the thing he loves most) and realizing that a song or choreography works perfectly. I just love that smile on his face.

    I'll post them as they come into my head...

    I had never seen for instance mike stands grabbed that seductibly. I died!




    When he shall die,
    Take him and cut him out in little stars,
    And he will make the face of heaven so fine
    That all the world will be in love with night
    And pay no worship to the garish sun.” -William Shakespeare

    ^^ oh, to be that microphone stand...

    A simple one, but I love the outtakes in Ghosts where he pulls the face, at 5:42 in this video.
    I also love how happy he looks here

    There are thousands of them. A few that immediately spring to mind:

    - The whole talking to the hat, pretending to comb his hair routine during the breakdown of Billie Jean on HIStory world tour
    - The random poses he does during the TII press conference (who else does stuff like that?)
    - The way he acts as if he plucks out the words from thin air on IJCSLY TII performance

    Yeah, I know what you mean. And in the same song, around 4:17 when he sings "The way you make me fee-eel!"
    standing in the group, he does this forward swing motion with his arms....for some reason that stands out for me. I really like it. Lol!

    Another one that comes to mind is when he's performing on Soul Train "Just A Little Bit of You"....
    the foot action at 1:39 and then spins.....the mic chord wraps around his legs but he dances out of it. Lol!
    Also dealing with the mic chord he has to yank on it (@1:30) to get some moving room. Never missing a beat! Haha! I love that!

    Also, any time you can see him "talking/directing/communicating" to his band with hand gestures and his hee hee's etc.
    all while still singing his song.
