    "Sexiest" is definitely subjective.

    2. Scream (Lip synced)

    3. The Drill/They Don't Care About Us (Lip synced except for military cadences)

    4. Medley: HIStory/D.S (Lip synced)

    5. Human Nature (fully live)

    6. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' (fully live)

    7. Stranger In Moscow (Lip synced except for ad-libs twoards the end)

    8. The Way You Make Me Feel (Lip synced except for ad libs)

    9. A. This Time Around (Lip synced)

    B. Dirty Diana (fully live)

    10. Smooth Criminal (lip synced except for final "You've been hit by, you've been struck by a smooth criminal" line.)

    11. You Are Not Alone (lip synced except for ad-libs twoards the end)

    12. She's Out Of My Life (fully live)

    13. Jackson 5 Medley: I Want You Back/The Love You Save/Ben (fully live)

    14. Bad (lip synced except for ad-libs twoards the end)

    15. Video Intermission (again, no vocals at all)

    16. Thriller (lip synced)

    17.

    A. Working Day And Night (fully live)

    B. Morphine (lip synced)

    18. Beat It (fully live)

    19.

    A. Shake Your Body (fully live)

    B. Dangerous (lip synced)

    20. Black Or White (lip synced until AFTER the rap part, then it becomes live)

    21. Earth Song (lip synced)

    22. We Are The World (fully live)

    23. Billie Jean (fully live)

    ENCORE

    24. Off The Wall (fully live)

    I'm just going with what would realistically be the case.

    yeah, but wasn't the idea to make it how YOU would like it? not how it would be in reality?

    OP:
    Before I begin this thread, I'd like to explain that I have no problem with the proposed setlist that was to be played for TII. This is just my personal idealized MJ show that would be perfect in my own view. The purpose of this thread really isn't to wonder what This Is It could have been, but rather, what would the perfect Michael Jackson show be for you? What kind of stage effects should be used and what songs should be played?

    My dream TII setlist is essentially taking all the other tours in consideration and saying "What would Michael do?" Would I like to see songs like TWYMMF and MITM performed fully live? It would be cool, but he never did those songs fully live, even on the Bad tour! It was always lip synced with live ad-libs.

    The Way You Make Me Feel was sung live at New York 1988 and Kansas City 1988.

    This is not a full list but some I'd have to say are musts for me..

    Wanna Be Startin Somethin
    Human Nature
    Stranger In Moscow
    Billie Jean
    Man In The Mirror
    Dirty Diana
    Another Part of Me
    Smooth Criminal
    Beat It
    The Way You Make Me Feel
    Rock With You
    Will you Be There


    OK... I'm just listing songs, it's not even in the order I'd want.. I'll say this, THIS IS IT was pretty damn close to what I would have wanted...

    I'd want This is it, with Another Part Of me.. I like the girl with the flame bed idea for Dirty Diana, but Id want MJ to perform the crap out of that, not just be hidden/taken over by this girl.. ummmm - and the man in the mirror outfit.. no, not for Man In the Mirror.. shoulders for Wanna Be Startin Somethin was too excessive too. looked like the NYC landscape on his shoulders lol Black Or White Jacket was really cool, just don't know how much that would weigh him down

    Personally, I'd have songs on my setlist that would be playback opposed to live too.
    Some songs Michael sings live don't sound great to me and the playback would enhance it.

    live vs. lip-sync for me... it all depends on how well he'd sing it live.. there have been times on that Billie Jean sounded good live and others that he's too out of breath to think vocals.. naturally I want live, but if the voice is not there, I'll take lip
