I allways thought it was so cool how Michael incoroprated mime into his dancing. I heard Michael was going to perform with Marcel Marceau on his One Night Only show in 1995. Does anyone have anymore info on Michael's miming.

i remember seeing him do it on tour, specifically at the end of Human Nature on the Dangerous and HIStory Tours, and as I was referring too in the title he did a lot of it performing Stranger in Moscow on the HIStory Tour.

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

he can do a lot more dancing when he doesn't have to sing and lose his breath. I understand why he did this. Its hard to sing and do as much dancing as he does. lol i have tried... it sure aint easy. So i dont care that he mimed his songs. I just love to see him shake his groove thang! lol

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

I forgot about him doing it during Lovely One on the Bad Tour. Heres another clip I forgot about where he does it.

Dancing to Janet's 'The Knowledge'. I love how he just locks himself in a dance studio like that and puts a song on. Then just lets the music take over him. I dream of doing that myself.

Thanks for embedding it for me. It just wouldnt let me do it!

I would love to get a full video of MJ just dancing in his studio like that, I would gladly sit there and just watch him dance for an hour. Cant say that about any other dancer.

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

Reading is fundamental LTD. I was thinking when I saw the thread title, "Don't we have a million threads about this already"? I'm glad I read first and posted second. That often works best. And I think the thread is a cool idea :)

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

I like how he mimes at the end of this performance (at 4:22):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-CcukMgj-s

Yup! I love that! I love this shot of him too....Such a beautiful picture...I love the emotion in his face here...creates a lot of pathos as he's very good at projecting....

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

Maybe the thread title should be changed, I can see how it would suggest the thred is about lip synching. I wouldnt dream about making another lip synching thread. While I do think its something we should talk about, there have already been many threads about it over the past few months. Some of which are still active.

Would it be possible for a mod to change the title?

Oh yes, that would really be too cool to be true. An hour, two, three..I think I wouldn't worry about time if I could watch the master at work like that :)

And btw very interesting thread, thank you very much! :yes: I thought this was about something else, too, but the picture with MJ and MM made me realize this was about something much better :)

yeah, I thought the same thing when I first read the title...I was like....'what?? not ANOTHER thread on lip syncing!' and I think you've started one before too ...and I was like...'WHAT is with him??'....:lol:

This is a great thread though! :wild:

Haha no i'm not that obsessed with it :p

I was just thinking, wasnt 'Smile' supposed to be released as a single in 1997 and there was to be a music video for it? I think I remeber hearing that somewhere.

Do you think we may have got a music video full of mime? :D

Re: Michael did A LOT of miming on tour, particularly HIStory Tour.

Miming at any point in a live show is ridiculous. Yes, sometimes maybe for effect but when you go about nearly the entire show doing that - isn't that a bit much?

...who mimed an entire show? :scratch:
