    Default Which Dangerous version do you like better?

    As the title of the thread say, which dangerous performance do you like better? Please donīt judge cause of Michaels energy or good dancing, but judge on the structure of the song, cause every version is unique... So only the strucutre of the song. For me it is 2009 version.

    93 is good, I like the bridge.
    95-97 is a standard one...
    99 woa... The introduction of the song is great, but I donīt feel the dance routine between verses with the hat and tie...
    2002... perfect to me. The 99 intro is here and than it is the classic 97 version...
    2009... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNHzaFyNA1g (starts about 2:10) This is heaven to me... Great intro, perfect atmosphere building and the psycho samples... Oh my god...

    What about you?

    I love the 1999 version. The buildup to the chorus is so good

    I similarly prefer the 2002 version because it combines the '99 intro and then moves straight into the '95 version. I also love the red shirt MJ started wearing in '99 My favourite performance of the track ever would be '95 Wetten Dass...?!

    Would have been interesting to see how Dangerous would have played out during the This is It shows!

    1993 because it kept the bridge from the album version.

    1995 and 2002 are my favorite. The 1993 version was great too but I don't like some of the dance moves he did during the pre-chorus and chorus. I'm glad they got removed.

    Performance-wise, 1995 Wetten Dass is the best. MJ was on fire, his moves were totally on point, he did not waste any single beat. For example, in other performances, when he took off his jacket, there's always one beat where he didn't do any moves, but at Wetten Dass, he threw his hat at that beat. Also in some performances, he messed up the cigarette part a little bit, but in Wetten Dass, that part was perfect. That performance can be directly used as MV.

    Arrangement-wise, 2002 is the best imo too. I like the design where dancers crawled up the stage in 1999.

    99 version is cool but it makes it seem too theatrical as if it is in a play instead of a concert. I’m not saying that’s bad, but in concerts, 93 and 95-97 versions are more appropriate. Both of those versions are really cool, especially the extra elements in 93, but to me, 95-97 is just too classic forget

    93 is my favourite version, because he performs the song without any snippets from other songs. I love the dance that he does during the second verse. Sadly, he dropped the second verse after 93, which means that he also dropped the second verse dance routine.

    I also do love the other performances of Dangerous, but I always felt that the Smooth Criminal part that was introduced starting in 95 was pointless, especially when Smooth Criminal was performed as a whole song on its own. If he wanted to include a snippet of a song, he should have included a song that wasn't performed live.

    I was blown away by the performance of Dangerous at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards when I first watched it, but I was even more blown away by the performances of it at the 1993 American Music Awards and 1999 concerts for that little MJ and Friends tour. If I had to prefer one over the other, the 1993 performance of the song at this awards event and on the Dangerous Tour is the one I enjoy the most. Although, to me, the one at the MTV VMAs in 1995 may as well be one of the best of all time.

    I agree, Wetten Dass was so energetic and he was thriving off of the audiences excitement and energy. I was there that night and it was unbelievable! You can tell he really enjoyed this performance and audience response right after the "Get the point, good, let's dance!" part when the audience sings along and MJ seems to have a smile on his face!
