    I like it. I enjoy it much more than any of the leaked/aired History tour shows.

    I loved the energy of the concert. However, it was obvious that a lot of things were going on with Michael personally. He didn’t look in the best of health; however, his stage presence was energetic. I really don’t know how he did it with the way he seemed to feel. There was also the Huge Issue of Sony/Mottola sabotaging the Invincible album. That was weighing heavily on Michael’s mind and it was extremely obvious. This sabatoge of the album affected Michael physically and emotionally. It was also said that Michael’s family was pressuring him to do a project with them. Considering all of those things, I enjoyed the Anniversary concert.

    Is it just me, or is there something about these shows that makes them feel incredibly dated? I don't know if it's the guest performers or what, but they are much less timeless than his other concerts.

    Overall, I am not a big fan of these shows. MJ was just not in a good place, unfortunately. With that said, it was cool to see him perform with his brothers, and the energy for their set was good. Live vocals always trump lip syncing.

    I never watch the entire concert. - It is only interesting from J5-performance and MJ solo performance.

    And J5 and MJ performances does not seem dated to me.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago. :)

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

    Barely know any of the guests??? Like really? Destinys Child, Whitney houston, Liza Minelli, Gloria Gaynor... If you barely know theese legends, there is something wrong on this world....

    Back on the topic... I like the shows... Love the Dancing Machine and the orchestra instrumental in Beat It and Billie Jean... instrumentally theese two are best composed songs on theese two shows... And I am glad, they pitched MJs vocals a bit down...

    The TV editing is just horible... changing setlist, cutting the best parts of BJ...

    Positives:
    - I love the Jacksons reunion. That was by far the highlight of the concert. And it was nice to see Michael sing live.
    - Michael’s vocals, although not perfect, sounded way better than they did at the History Tour.
    - Ending of Billie Jean.

    Negatives:
    - Expected Lip syncing during solo songs. It was so disappointing that Michael so frequently resorted to lip syncing.
    - Set list for the solo songs was poor. No Dangerous, MITM, Smooth Criminal.
    - TWYMFF with Britney was cringe. It was kinda cringe seeing MJ in his 40s trying to woo a teenage Britney Spears. Also the chemistry between the two just wasn’t there.
    - Performance of You Rock My World was unimaginative.

    I love the performance on the 10th. To me it has a great spirit, even if MJ isn’t in the best shape. The Jacksons’ section is amazing, the intro to TWYMMF is sublime, and I particularly like the Beat It performance on this night.

    I like the second Your Rock My World performance. Michael probably knew that the first wasn't good so they added the dancers and rehearsed it more.

The only shows we had access to were Motown 25, The Legend Continues VHS, a TV recording of Bucharest 1992, Dangerous Short Films, History Short Films and whatever shows VH1 used to air. Anything else MJ had to be bought on Ebay. I still find MSG 2001 enjoyable because it was his last true live performance. I find it kind of annoying that it has been analyzed in so many ways for people to critic what was bad about it. Was MJ at his best? No. But the significance of the anniversary was that we did get that one last show. I appreciate it for what it was.
    I had to see if I wrote this lol but man vh1 were the mj glory days in the 90s but your exactly right! I remember being so excited for the trailers & the 1st time it came on I was on a natural high I couldn't come down from. After time I still used to get really really excited when it reaired constantly everytime...the only con was sitting through all the acts waiting for j5/mj. At the time they were even cutting performances...I guess due to time or whatever but I remember dancing with him & at times the 10 year old me could not figure out what was wrong with my idol. He never opened his eyes & he covered his mouth most of the show, he couldn't move his top lip. Had no idea that he was on medication as to at the time I wasn't aware or had never seen anyone in my life high & if I did I didn't know because I didn't know what high was at 10 & the fact the he nor the band could see each other was a huge mistake. I really wonder what that show could've been had mj been in his right mind. Like the 1999 friends show or the TV guide interview. I mean if you compare the TV guide interview with the interview after the 30th anniversary shows when he claimed to be happy going back on stage with his brothers & etc.

    MSG was conceived as a TV show since the beginning. And this has ruined most of the things IMO. It's a copy/paste of everything to performe great on TV. But people who were there knows what happened really. It often happens with television shows, you watch them and it doesn't even look like the same show you saw live. I liked the brothers being together again, but i think that if it was just a gig things would have been different.

    I meant:
    Usher
    Mýa
    Billy Gilman
    Rayvon and Rikrok
    Monica, Al Jarreau, Jill Scott and Deborah Cox
    James Ingram
    Marc Anthony
    Monica, Tamia, Mýa, Deborah Cox and Rah Digga
    Cassandra Wilson
    Lil' Romeo and Master P
    98 Degrees
    Aaron Carter
    Jason Paige

    Literally don't know any of these. It's just a poor lineup used as filler. Dated. And very Amerocentric.

    Mike is from Gary Indiana, not Tokyo. It's also a concert that takes place in NYC and broadcast on CBS, both in the USA. So of course it's going to have performers known in the USA to get the TV audience to watch it on CBS. Usher was huge in the USA during the early 2000s. His album Confessions sold over 10 million copies at the time. Which was a big deal for a R&B singer, rather than a rapper. Those were actual physical sales too and not streaming numbers like current mainstream popular artists.
