    If anything else it released it will be dubbed or have vocals copied and pasted from various rehearsals like it was in the film. They won't release raw rehearsals unfortunately even though I'd probably prefer that.

    Do we know if there is a longer version of 'Speechless' ?

    I think it was just something MJ randomly did, so no.

    As far as I know the only ones that there is any proof they actually exist are Dirty Diana (although apparently this wasn't even properly rehearsed) and dangerous. The others we're just going off of pictures of rehearsals which honestly don't really tell us what songs are being rehearsed in them lol.

    The last videos of Michael Jackson were so top secret, they were transported in an unmarked truck, accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night ... this according to new docs filed in the Conrad Murray manslaughter case.


    You ask what Conrad Murray has to do with MJ videos? Well, Dr. Murray wants to see ALL of the rehearsal videos shot for the doomed "This is It" tour. Murray's lawyers believe it could show Michael was in such a frail condition ... there were many reasons for his death other than Propofol.

    Murray's lawyers subpoenaed the tapes, but now Sony Pictures -- which has possession of the videos -- is objecting for several reasons. Sony claims there are more than 20 boxes of videos and it would cost $200,000 to log and reproduce all of them.

    But in the docs, Sony describes how top secret the videos were to the studio. Sony lawyers say, "When they were transported to the Sony lot in Culver City, the transport in an unmarked truck was accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night."

    When the tapes were in an editing bay, security guards were posted outside the door and no Internet access was allowed in the room.

    And a Sony honcho also submitted a declaration which says the videos "have a high monetary value inherent in their potential for future uses. Those uses include one or more 'anniversary editions.'"
    Tapes??? It was 2009.. really doubt this. Why should they put or film stuff on tape.. in 2009 no-one filmed on tape anymore.. makes no sense..

    As far as my memory goes all the footage were shot digitally. They had only one or two HD cameras (I think it was a RED camera) and a cheap handycam which didn’t shoot in HD, but at a lower resolution (as seen in the film, the picture qualify differences between them). These “tapes” were not meant for a release, since it was a rehearsal.

    There is no point in officially releasing footage in which MJ did not rehearse at all, but only the band/dancers rehearsed (like, ‘Stranger In Moscow’, or ‘Dirty Diana’, among others).

    Hardly anyone would really care to see that, let alone pay for that.

    But, here is an interesting thing:

    It has been suggested by some of those who worked on ‘This Is It’ that MJ did re-record brand new vocals for ‘Stranger In Moscow’ with a view to using them (instead of the album vocals) for those performances.

    Material like the alleged new vocals for ‘Stranger In Moscow’ has certainly more monetary potential for the Estate, because that would meet with bigger demand from fans.

    I think Michael Prince said they started re recording SIM and WBSS but then MJ said he wanted to sing live as much as possible so they stopped. I very much doubt a full re recorded version of those songs exist.

    Just to clarify, other songs were for sure 100% rehearsed. SIM, Dangerous, WYBT, Dirty Diana.. DD though never got it's full rehearsal with the bed, that was to be done the 25th.

    Not all were rehearsed at the staple center but at the forum.. side note the way this is it was edited, they took alot from the forum performances and edited it with staple center and just advertised it as so.. with the songs that were not rehearsed at staple center theyd have to be forced to use only forum rehearsals which could also be not used in the film specifically because it becomes more obvious it was NOT within his last 3 days like they were trying to advertize..

    Watch the movie again and see how the stage changes as do the color of the seats in the arena.. 1 is the forum and the other is staple center..

    Lets not forget about this.
    Well... you cannot tell if this is real or not... maybe its just the studio version.. though i believe sometimes the vocals sound different.
    But i remember when those videos came out. It was in like march or april 2009 i guess.. They were still rehearsing. I remember the excitement about those videos.

    They were rehearsed but I personally doubt they were rehearsed with MJ there. Dirty Diana was but the others I doubt it.

    Seeing as how the majority of Michael's live performances were lip synced from 1995 onward, I find it surprising that Michael suddenly wanted to sing live as much as possible in 2009. Especially considering that he was obviously older in 2009 than what he was in the 90's.

    Playback imo. Just band rehearsals.

    Michael Prince said that he wanted to sing live as much as possible and if he couldn't then they would just use the backing track to help him like they had always done. I don't think it would have worked out that way and I think most of the concert would have been lip synced but that was apparently MJ's intentions for the concerts.

    When it comes to live singing, I think that This Is It would have been similar to the Dangerous Tour
