    It is clearly album vocals when he starts singing. Around 1:05 he starts singing live. Then after 1:42 you hear album vocals again. I didn't watch the full video now but he doesn't sing a lot. It is live after 3:25. The part before it are album vocals.

    For me it’s more the technical part I don’t understand. Many mistakes happened during the history tour, MJ & Friends (for instance the curtain that fell down starting Billie jean). And this WMCIG performance you can barely hear them singing. I don’t care less about his shows that Michael did not sang everything and he would have got his reasons for it. It’s the energy he spreads that exite me to watch it as well.

    ^ yeah that always annoys me too.. I mean the more advanced technology got the worse it worked on Michaels concerts. I mean to be fair I am not sure how difficult it was in the 90's getting things to work while traveling.. As in how there are differences in various areas of the world that need different feeds, prongs, and stuff buttt… It's a MICHAEL JACKSON concert.. come on!


    PS. regarding rock my world, I didn't examine it or watch it in years but I did remember hearing some off vocals and mess ups so I knew there were live vocals. That is still considered live vocals even if half wasn't live.

    Earth Song was only particularly live during the Royal Brunei concert, when he did those heavenly ad-libs. YANA also had live ad-libs at the end. Scream was live in Brunei, only during the first verse due to a playback error. And You Rock My World was never fully live either. Just a few ad-libs that were live. My point is that it's extremely disappointing that he did so much lip-syncing in the 90s. Again, I'm not disputing the fact that he had healthy problems. But still, he could have tried to have done a few songs live here and there. He did WBSS & Jackson 5 medley live on the History tour. But did he really have to perform these songs again? He could have dropped those songs and maybe have done Stranger In Moscow and Black or White or some other song live instead.

    I was just making the point that on an ensemble track like that, only MJ's vocals were placed in so that he could lip-synch while everyone else was expected to sing live. It's a little embarassing.

    Earth song at the world music award had simular live portion.. YANA always the same section live, the ending pretty much.. I am aware of why Scream went live, but still was live lol!.. and Rock My World, we have to say more than just ad libs.. it went in and out through the song before adlib sections.

    But yes I could see why disappointing, I guess with the decades of thinking about it.. I've somewhat let it go! a little.. I mean back in the 90's when I saw these performance.. or some in the early 00s when I really started to collect MJ footage (before YouTube) I did have in the back of my head that I don't want others to notice it's not live.. I think I've even talked through performances just to hide the sound lol..

    So I get it!

    Yeah I'm not talking about how Michael would only sing adlibs live in concert for certain songs. I'm saying for this specific song it's weird to expect all the contributors to perform their parts live and then have your couple of lines at the start and the bridge lipsynched.
