    I see no harm in asking the question. I am new too and I am always worried about doubling up on something that has already been asked. We shouldn't feel nervous. Michael certainly wouldn't want an environment like that. There are so many theories out there about Michael. It doesn't surprise me that some people are saying it wasn't him. Personally I believe it was him. I do hope the vocals for "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" weren't dubbed from other parts as that performance was incredible.

    I am quite sure that vocals from I just can't stop loving you was MJ - and not dubbed.

    Perfect vocals on Human Nature and IJCSLY - and more.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    It was Michael, no doubt. A double may look like him, even be able to dance like him, but Michael's hands, his smile, his voice, the way he carried himself, nobody in the world could duplicate those things exactly. He was magical, nobody in the world could truly capture that essence.

    Michael lost weight. It's normal that some people do not reconize him

    I think a person who have the habit to watch Michael performing will knows that it's Michael. I think no fans people have the right or can be wrong.

    i was just asking people's opinions that's all. I don't think this would insult Michael as he was known to use body doubles for all sorts of things. I aren't trying to insult any fans who think this is a worthless question but it's something I wanted to know as it wasn't newspapers I got the info from his own sister said it

    Without getting into speculation about the circumstances of these concerts.. I really enjoyed seeing Michael continue to evolve as a dancer. It's not about the choreographed set pieces for me. It's about the solo improve during 'Billie Jean' and 'Human Nature'. Without the glides, robotics, and popping, Michael had his own style. It was so wonderful to see that he hadn't lost that intricate fluid smoothness that few others seem to be able to gasp. I personally loved when he mimed taking a mirror out of his pocket to check his reflection, ha! It was just a rehearsal, yet there was still enough energy for them to pass off as legitimate performances.

    He was very aware. Even remembering the Spanish version of 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You'. There's bonus footage of him singing 'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough' and explaining the harmonies. There were even nods to 'Speechless', 'Threatened' and 'Ghosts'. Songs that had never received the live treatment. 'Human Nature' was hands down the best live vocal of the track I ever heard from him. He had to restrain himself on 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You' and 'I'll Be There! He was thoughtful enough to go back and make live action sequences for his old short films.

    The people around him were working to bring his vision to life. There was no need for added commentary. Just witness.. Anyone who wants to see his artistic process can just watch this. All in all, I think it was a great lasting memory. There are people who became fans because of this.

    Sure. I have been a devoted fan for over 35 years now. Over those years I have heard so many different theories/ideas/stories about Michael. For example, he didn't want to be black, he wanted to be white, he had a sex change, him and Janet were the same person, he really quit the industry after Thriller and had a stand in after that etc. And ofcourse the most recent well known theory is that he faked his own death. These are just a few. Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to fantastical stories surrounding Michael. The more far fetched the better it has seemed. To be honest I am never shocked by any of the stories I hear about Michael anymore!

    He looked like Michael
    He talked like Michael
    He acted like Michael
    He sang like Michael
    He danced like Michael

    So it obviously must have been David Hasselhoff
