    Michael Jackson Bahamas 1998

    The second tape of rehearsal footage from DWT has him singing the full song live and he actually puts effort into it. It's pretty awesome that footage exists along with the rest of the tape that includes Man in the Mirror, Bad and Black or White fully live with actually decent and sometimes...

    Brief live vocals on Jam on the Dangerous Tour

    His voice had still deteriorated by that point. He may have overdid it trying to sing live during rehearsals and he did get sick during the tour too which resulted in live vocals like the Munich concert which must have been embarrassing for him. I think he cancelled the planned home release of...

    Brief live vocals on Jam on the Dangerous Tour

    That kind of helps MJ's case. His lip syncing at the time was so convincing that most people didn't realize. I think because he had so much to offer aside from live vocals in his starpower, dancing and overall spectacle, he could get away with it and his audience could still enjoy his...

    Brief live vocals on Jam on the Dangerous Tour

    I think that's important to reiterate. Die hard fans who have seen footage of multiple concerts and performances and have analysed all this are too spoiled and are going to look at the History tour less favorably. Since the internet has brought almost unlimited access to concert and...

    Brief live vocals on Jam on the Dangerous Tour

    What's weird during the History tour was that some shows he didn't cover his mouth at all and showed that he was quite skilled at looking convincing when lip syncing, which I can at least appreciate if he felt the need to do it so much even though the use of the straight studio tracks with his...

    Am I the only MJ fan who thinks that Michael’s solo career began with...

    I agree. I consider his earlier solo albums as side projects whereas the Jackson 5 was still the primary focus of his career. Off the Wall was the beginning of him really coming into his own as the King of popular music and even though he still threw his brothers a bone in the 80s, he had...

    Should fans really get offended if someone doesn’t like MJ?

    I used to get offended by it, especially online because most people who vocally disliked him usually delved into his personal issues and the accusation bs. Very little have I heard people bash his actual music or talent, even from those who don't really listen to his style of music. I think...

    When was Michael at his best as a live vocalist and studio vocalist?

    If I had to pick one live vocal performance above all others it would be Shake Your Body from Yokohama 87. His voice in that performance was so clear and powerful, it blows my mind everytime. Couple that with his dancing and intensity of his movements and its damn near the perfect MJ performance.

    Song Of The Week - Ease On Down The Road

    I saw it for the first time last year and immediately noticed how much more effort Michael put into it compared to everyone else. He really put everything into making his Scarecrow portrayal as good as possible. Even though it bombed so bad it ended the blacksploitation era of film in the 70's...

    What is YOUR fav mj album and WHY

    I grew up on Bad so that will always be my No.1. I was 4 and had the cassette that omitted Leave Me Alone and remember when I was around 7 or 8 I had finally saved the $30 I needed to get the full CD. It's just a masterpiece. I'm now 30 and literally have that same CD playing in my car on an...

    SONG OF THE WEEK - Another Part Of Me

    The audio was from a different show however the music video contains footage of all the Wembley concerts. I believe the audio from the video was from the concert where he used a black mic instead of silver. What's weird is that on the Bad 25 documentary they edited together a completely...

    Mj voice power

    There definitely seemed to be a change in overall power in his live performances as early as the DWT. It's quite noticeable if you compare the likes of Wanna be Startin something and Billie Jean from the Bad tour. However Michael always seemed to have moments where he demonstrated that he...

    Michael's best spins?

    Oh man, one of my biggest frustrations about a lot of MJ's concert footage, crappy camera angles and terrible editing choices that ruin moments of his dance performances. The end dance sequence of Billie Jean in Bucharest being the worst of all. The Brisbane Bad tour was the only one that...

    Michael's best spins?

    Ok, so one of the things that always blew my mind about Michael's dancing was his ability to spin multiple times on the spot. The best and longest I've seen is the one during Man in the Mirror on the Live in Bucharest video (although I know that it was edited in from a different concert). The...
