So did they not bury him on his birthday (yesterday) as was announced? Did they wait because Ted K. stole his thunder by being buried that day? The radio stations had daylong tributes yesterday but I never heard a thing about him being put away.

I'm pretty sure it was already decided about a week ago that they were going to wait a couple extra days for whatever reason

I thought it belonged here instead of in the VMA thread, but they showed the trailer for the movie of MJ's rehearsal footage. Incredible. Absolutely fucking incredible. The man was moving like he did 20 years ago, and he seemed so happy for the first time in a long time. He looked and sounded incredible. I know parts were lip synched, but he was clearly singing live quite a bit as well. That show would've been amazing. Damn, the VMAs for making me cry twice last night, first with Madonna's amazing speech and then seeing this and realizing what the world missed out on.

I should imagine those 2 weeks will sell out very quickly ww.

Just glad I saw him in the 80's, but still wishing I could see him next year too

That "This Is It" trailer footage looks amazing!!! I can't wait to see it.

I never had the chance to see him live in my lifetime because he never came to Seattle (i grew up near there) when he was in his solo career. I feel bummed out about it. The last time he was there was in 1979 with Jackson 5 when I was a baby

This looks awesome still blows me away that none of it came to be

I'm sorry you never had the chance. I was lucky enough to once see him, and it cemented my respect for him and his immaculately flawless performing.

I've never known which MJ was the real one; whether it was the permanent man-child who just wanted life to be a fairytale for every child, as he never had in childhood, or the carefully crafted neurotic persona which proved over a career to be both a hindrance and a huge help. I don't think it entirely matters. I don't believe the allegations, for numerous reasons. I'm not even sure he was as broke as implied. Again, it's not really important, being broke I mean. Like his music or not, the man was a genius. I felt privileged to see it in action. I was witness to something amazing by an incredible performer. I'm thankful. I shouldn't be as shocked as I was. He always said he'd never live to old age. He just knew. I hope he's free now from whatever demons he lived with. He gave a lot of joy through music to many people.

Beautiful post. It's heartbreaking to me that I've never seen him live. He's always been one of my favorite artists. I remember the first time I ever saw anything of is. My mom and dad were playing music videos when I was about 5, and I fell in love with "Black or White". There was just something magical about him like Madonna said last night. He was a musical genius and he had one of the purest spirits I've ever seen. He wasn't perfect, but clearly all he wanted to do was help people and bring joy to the world with his music and resources, and he did that a thousand times over.

If it's any consolation to you guys who've never seen him live, there really is so glaringly little difference between a film clip and a live performance. He is so absolutely flawless, it is just like watching a video of him. I recall actually taking stock of the surreality of it at a few times during his concert, and thinking, "This is Michael Jackson and it's him right there, not an image... he's... human! He eats just like me, he sleeps, he cries, laughs, cracks the shits, daydreams, watches tv... " It was a very strange thing. It could almost have been me watching a screen with 90,000 others, if he didn't occasionally say, "Hello, Sydney!" and throw his hat to the crowd, etc. It was very un-real, you know? I almost wonder if anyone has ever gotten close to such an enigma. I don't see how you can.

I really run the risk of rambling on for hours, so I best stop. I'm glad there's so many others who appreciate all that he was, too.

Great posts Angela, and whoa if that trailer isn't stunning and transcendent. I didn't have an interest given the seeming cash grab, but there's such a relevance given his death and it does look to highlight the great things we should and hopefully will remember, I'll be there.

As soon as 'Man In The Mirror' started in that trailer I lost it a bit.

I'm gonna go out on a huge limb here () and say that it will get extended in cinemas. Remember - that Hannah Montana concert movie was meant to be on for one week and stayed around for two months...

On the other hand if they are saying only 2 weeks in cinemas the dvd must be coming out before christmas...
