    That was due to legal conflicts between two competing channels, ABC and CBS.

    ABC aired the ‘United We Stand: What More Can I Give’ benefit concert at that time, but Michael Jackson had to cut his ‘Man In The Mirror’ performance from that ABC broadcast.

    The reason (that he cut his performance from that ABC broadcast) was because the competing CBS channel had already signed an agreement to air in the same month (November) his 2001 MSG Anniversary Show.

    There was a stipulation that these two competing channels could not air these two different performances of him so close in the same month.

    His ‘Man In The Mirror’ performance on ABC was not re-scheduled to air later, thus it has remained shelved in ABC media archives until these days.

    In spite of the agreements made between him and CBS (and I guess ABC), I personally think it was an insult to Michael for withdrawing his solo performance from the show's broadcast given that he organized the event itself. Even if it may not be his strongest performance, it is still his last ever "live" performance of Man In The Mirror. Why would I not want to watch that?

    Precisely. Some fans are hell bent on destroying MJs performances for no reason. Just enjoy them for what they are.

    So, in all this time ABC never tried to re-air this footage? Even when it was MJ everywhere for most of 2009? What a shame.

    I would love nothing more than to see a release of Man In The Mirror from 2001. It is by far my favourite performance of Michael and was my highlight of both Bad and Dangerous Tours. Usually, I am not a fan of lip-synced performances, but I can make exceptions for Man In The Mirror.

    It's a shame that Michael Jackson's very last and antepenultimate performances aren't available in full. For someone who is the greatest performer of all time, you wouldn't expect that to be the case.
