    Black Or White and Dirty Diana have the same costumes (Black pants with white shirt) so it makes sense to put those two songs together as a medley.

    I don't think they planned to use the white shirt. That jacket on the right was going to be used in Black or White:

    We're not sure if those costumes would have made it to the actual shows. Those are costumes designed by Zeldy, and IIRC it was said that Michael didn't really like his designs. And I think Michael Bush was also designing costumes for Michael during that time.

    And tbh I'm not a fan of Zaldy's designs either. The outfits Michael wore at rehearsals looked better imo

    True... Michael told to Bush he want him to secretly work on all the costumes for the show. He didn´t wanted to wear Zaldy´s costumes, cause they were too heavy and not very functional.

    Zaldy’s outfits are awful.

    I liked a few of them but some of them looked overly complicated and cumbersome. Especially for someone as light as MJ. They were a departure from what he had wore before for sure. I thought the suit with the lights on it would have looked pretty cool on stage but wasn't so crazy about the actual design.

    I appreciate that Zaldy was going unique and balls-to-the-wall insane, and some of his designs were great (the Motown Medley suit was beautiful and the LED lights incorporated into the “Billie Jean” outfit were awesome), but some were definitely excessive. IIRC, one of them was 15-20 pounds, and no way was Michael gonna be able to handle that.

    ^Yeah, my thought when I saw them was that they looked way too cumbersome, especially for dancing in. Isn't a surprise that MJ had alternate designs made up so he could choose.

    This. That outfit he wore during the green screen rehearsals for "They Don't Care About Us" was insane -- black military style jacket and what looked like skinny jeans. The way he walked in with sunglasses was so badass

    I mean it's possible that some of them might have been outfits that he would progressively take off as the show went on (like the Light Man costume from the HIStory World Tour). But even then I think they probably would've been a bit much.

    None of it was ready either. Bush however, had both the TWYMMF & BoW shirts ready for Michael to rehearse in, if not more.

    Michael planed to perform not full songs only medleys or like 2 or 3 min not the full songs. I think he choosed this way of work for putting more songs into the final setlist. And I agree Zaldy's designs outfits are not really "Michaelish" on stage but Bush always did great work !
