Although, to me, the one at the MTV VMAs in 1995 may as well be one of the best of all time.
    I agree with you. Hence my signature.

    I like the red shirt more. I wonder if he would have had green shirt for This Is It? It would have made sense because of the stage colors. I hope we see more rehearsal footage at some point:

    He did but we don't know how much he danced when rehearsing it. There are other photos with that silver jacket and there is also a short clip of him doing a spin at 1:19 in the trailer:

    The 1995 VMA performance is perfect in my opinion. The moves, the music and the presence. It's the pinnacle of Dangerous live
    1999 was my next favourite, I like the shake up to choreography and some of the new sound effects added. Also MJ looks sharp
    The 1993 was good but I think it looked raw and unpolished. For me some of the moves didn't fit the music
    The 2002 version was special because it was nice seeing MJ back performing again more than anything else. He wasn't at his best but he was still great
    Finally the HIStory Tour version, it just looked uninspired and lacklustre for most of the tour. I was glad Mike including it though, it's one of his best live songs

    I do prefer the white shirt over the red because the dancers and Michael look more cool, plus the red shirt always looked tight. Both were great though. It was always best when Mike kept his hat on as well, throw the jacket away but not the hat.

    Great thread idea mate, I love Dangerous

    I always loved the fact that Michael's wife was watching him perform Dangerous at the 1995 MTV Awards. Despite their marital problems at the time she must have been incredibly proud to see her hubby do his thing.

    Performance wise I think he topped himself at Wetten, Dass?! I read in Black&White magazine that Michael and his dancers were thrilled with the Wetten, Dass performance and considered it the best at the time. The delivery is just so tight and the German audience was so appreciative. Good times.

    Yes, very good - and happy times...
    Yesterday I felt inspired to watch the ´Wetten Dass?´- performance again. I want to repeat it: I watch any and all of Michaels performances very rarely, because each and every is so unique and precious for me... This special and breathtaking performance gave me goosebumps again, after experiencing it 25 years ago. And I had tears in my eyes because of its absolute greatness and perfection.
    ...Well, after loving me, she said she couldn´t love another...

    2009 Dangerous had sounds from Morphine in the beginning. I do not recall if the versions online are identical but it for sure was simular. I always assumed the green lights from the pics we saw with the electrical currents for that portion which I could be wrong.


    For sure though, it did indeed have the sounds from Morphine.

    I imagine the Dangerous rehearsal footage from TII is pretty lacklustre. The routine exhausted him in 2002 let alone the condition he was in mid June 2009.

    As with any TII footage not in the film, if it was genuinely good it would have been in the film. They were under strict court orders to only show footage that portrays him positively.

    You can´t judge the 2002 performance like that... It was only 1 performance, not the tour. Was he exhausted, maybe ye, but jusdt because he wasn´t preparing for it like he was preparing for every tour... And don´t forget he did this pefromance twice in a row....

    And that's all it is....."imagining". We have no way of knowing for certain.
    I think more TII footage would be fascinating to see - I hope we do see it, one day.

    I'd say MTV 95 as well.
    They are all nice to watch, but this one is still special to me. Back then (pre-YouTube) the AMA 93 performance was not really available to watch for anyone outside of the USA. I only saw pictures of it in the Black & White magazine. So MTV 95 was the first time it hit worldwide and he was on fire. Camera, lighting were all perfect as well.

    I remember the live broadcast on MTV had the dry "studio" audio of this Dangerous remix. In the polished reboardcast it had more of the audience noise mixed in.

    Nothing known about this. But probably just a montage of Dangerous Tour footage. Similar to what's included at the end of the 'Dangerous The Short Films' release. I guess he would not really have had the time to shoot a fullflegded music video for it. Back then he was also in the middle of the (unfinished) Is It Scary / early Ghosts filming and touring etc.
