    The first that comes to mind is the second spin in Man In The Mirror from Monza in 1992. Truly incredible.

    If there is no video evidence it would be quite impossible to claim the numbers of spin. I doubt anyone who saw MJ live in 1992 can count during the concert how many spins he made.

    Joke aside I would also say maybe Monza or Copenhagen MITM. - that is actually the footage used in the Bucharest concert isn't it?
    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

    I have no clue about that but I can tell you it's his most impressive skill. It's also his one move that I've never seen an impersonator copy in the correct way. In fact I never seen anyone doing better spins than MJ. My favorite ones comes from the J5 days, he did it so often then, often multiple times during just one song, they looked so smooth and effortless, everything in total control.

    I love it when Michael spins and falls on his knees like he used to do during Man In The Mirror performances. My fav spin would be from the Oslo 92 concert. That was pure magic.

    Michael's spins are my fav dance move of his. They are so aesthetically pleasing. He made them look so smooth and effortless.

    the first one that comes to mind for me is from the james brown concert in '83 it made up the majority of the dance :O the whole thing was so fast that I didn't even notice that he took off, and put back on his glasses before and after.

    another notable one is from Motown 25 during 'the love you save'. it was like his feet merged into one spinning top. he immediately continued singing without sounding out of breath. of course, the one during 'billie jean' after the first moonwalk. this is the first time that I could see that his arms were folded as he did it.

    I was recently surprised by the one during the performance of 'don't stop til you get enough' at a nightclub. normally I can see them coming. this one looked completely spontaneous.

    I think he really refined it in the mid to late '70s. what's more impressive is that he did it with a long cord microphone, and didn't get tangled up. mike douglas wanted to know if Michael had wheels under his shoes, ha. that's how effective he was in creating illusions through dance

    it's definitely my favourite move

    Not the spin record, but I’m most impressed by the spins in The Wiz, because he somehow achieved them in those huge shoes. I would love to see him practice with those.

    The multiple spins, by far the most spectacular MJ move imo. He was definitely at his best in these from around 76 to 84. He performed multiple spins afterwards as well but never with the same ease and the aesthetic beauty of his peak period. His early spinning is fast as hell and he does them so effortlessly 3 or 4 spins no problem beautiful on the eye. Another great spin he did was during the performance of can you feel it in the triumph tour. Or during thriller especially in the rehearsal video that surfaced.
    Later on his spinning got slower and sometimes he even slightly lost balance near the end of his spins. He usually performed just a single spin during the HIStory tour.

    I've never seen anyone spinning like MJ, MJ's technique is unique in its set up and execution and by far the most spectacular variant.

    Those are all great but far from the most spin rotations he had ever done

    I think the one at the james brown concert is a strong contender. definitely the fastest at least. didn't even need to 'rev up'. just jumped right into it..
