    Default This Is It, was that really Michael Jackson?

    I have seen a few statements now that it wasn't Michael Jackson in a lot of the This Is It footage. There was even a quote from his family saying it wasn't him. I assumed it was but how can you tell? I cant tell and if its not him they fooled me. What are your thoughts?

    I thought it was but i'm not sure I could tell the difference if his decoys look so much like him. One of his decoys said that it wasn't him as he has studied Michaels every move for years from the way he moves his hands to how he moves his body and that it wasn't him. Also his sister said it wasn't Michaels voice, confused!

    Sorry I've not seen the thread about about it or I wouldn't have asked. I just wanted to see if other people were as confused as me. I apologise for the post

    It was Michael no doubt. He was just extremely nervous and he had a bit to drink

    He was older and he hadn't performed in a long time so his dancing didn't look exactly the same as before.

    I apologise I thought you were asking about just the press conference. That was him in This Is It "the documentary" as well no doubt.

    I never understood the doubt to be honest, there's loads of moments throughout the documentary were it's obviously him but the one that stands out.
    Towards the end of Human Nature when does a signature move he's front of stage and he puts his hand to his face and kicks his legs apart to pose, all while he's got the other hand in his pocket. Still silky smooth

    Thank you for your reply. I have seen these things saying it wasn't him and I thought wow well it really looks like him. I didn't believe it wasn't him I just wanted to know other people's views

    But the vocals in some songs are not really from the rehearsals. Many are dubbed from other sources for the movie

    Threads like this make me sad. Why on earth would you think it wasn't Michael and why do his own fans not even recognize him in the first place?

    No doubt it was MJ...

    Anyone who has seen This Is It can see so very clearly...

    The magic is there.. - so it's MJ...

    I'm not sure why threads like this make you sad. I was asking a question and as I stated I didn't say I thought it wasn't him, I just said I was confused as to why people said it wasn't. I am new here and if I am bringing up things that have been talked about before then I apologise as I haven't seen them or I would have read them. I'm not sure on the etiquette of the forum and to what you feel I am allowed to ask but if I have a question I will ask. I am just looking for people who have more knowledge to help me out. If you'd like to give me a list of questions I'm allowed to ask I'll gladly follow the rules

    It makes me sad because I don't understand why fans would doubt Michael. This was a 50 year old man who had not been onstage for years. He was human just like all of us so of course you would notice a slight change in his voice, movements and what not.

    Threads like this just prove that people clearly don't know what to talk about regarding Michael so they just start throwing things out there.

    I don't mean to attack you personally so please don't feel offended. I'm just commenting on threads in general. If you want advise or answers from people with more knowledge or experience, try asking things that are worth answering.

    I am here, 'cause you were there.
