    I don't think there is an orchestra version short film. Just the regular one was used for the video.

    Yeah Spike Lee directed the video but it uses the normal version of the song. This is It movie end credits use the orcestral version with rehearsal clips.

    Edit: I was wrong. This is the video:

    The Spike Lee video for This Is It is great. Nice tribute.

    I do not understand why it's not on MJ's official youtube channel.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    The version from Anka's album used Michael's vocals from the 2009 released version, and was Paul's vocals new?

    Good question. I don't know. I always thought it was new vocals, but really I do not know.

    I really like Anka's version. His arrangement gives the song the flow it needed. Wish he would have used its real title, I Never Heard, for release.

    Btw, this song was always intended being a duet between Anka & Jackson.

    Just listened to some Anka's 1983 works, then to his "This is it" version... I would say that the lyrics to This is it were recorded later, but I could be wrong.

    Also I stumbled upon this video, liked the song with the introduction speech:
