This is interesting to hear. Obviously, the vocals aren't great but it would be interesting to hear other live vocals from songs which were lip-synched.
Someone on here has insisted for years that those in power should use the mic feed vocals for a HIStory Tour film. I hope this serves as evidence for why this should never happen.
That's actually a very good analogy.Believe me, they're unlistenable from there, he sang over the playback without even listening to his voice. it's like singing with high volume music on your ears without listening to your voice and don't understand what are you singing.
I completely agree that playback is leagues beneath live vocals. But MJ’s live vocals were NOT up to par during this tour; even the “good” shows are still rather bad. I just don’t think this tour is salvageable.To be honest I would much prefer vocals like this then playback.
These Things happen in case the playback fails. See Scream in Brunei.Would like to hear Stranger in Moscow, Earth Song, Heal the World - maybe even You Are Not Alone.
I'm curios why they recorded his vocals? - He knew the playback was on, so naturally he wasn't even trying to sing good, he just sang along so he at least moved the mouth correct to the lyrics. - But why was he recorded, did MJ know? Or was someone trying to make money on recording the "bad/raw" live vocals without MJ knowing?
Seems weird to me if MJ has requested that these bad live vocals underneath the play-back was recorded, what's the purpose?

As for the songs you said, I’m pretty sure we’re better off not hearing them lol
There was nothing wrong with his vocals in the Nordic shows (Gothenburg, Helsinki, Reykjavik, Copenhagen etc) Sure it’s not his finest moments but the live vocals on those shows were not bad.I completely agree that playback is leagues beneath live vocals.

Agreed. He sounded quite good on a few shows. I like his vocals in Bucharest and Brunei also.There was nothing wrong with his vocals in the Nordic shows (Gothenburg, Helsinki, Reykjavik, Copenhagen etc) Sure it’s not his finest moment but the love vocals on those shows were not bad
It would be extremely damaging for my ears as wellWhile that snippet sounded completely awful I think it still enhanced the performance. But listening to an entire concert of those kind of vocals would be extremely damaging for MJ so this better doesn't get uploaded on YouTube.
Judging by how the vocals that we already heard from the clip sound(aka horrible),I think we all can imagine that it would be just as painful to listen to other off-key vocals from this show and song too. Painful but interesting thoYou heard them? Where? Do you have more than what was posted here?
