The Lean was orginally seen in the Smooth Criminal music video which was from the movie Moonwalker.



Michael: Oh, Smooth Criminal, well. That one happened ... it was in the middle of the shoot and it wasn't .. I choreographed it right at the moment. Took us an hour to execute it. It's a special effect that we kind of lean as far as we can and, uh, we let the conveyor belt do the rest.

Dutch dancer Timor Steffens was one of the dancers on Michael Jacksons announced This Is It Tour. He worked with Michael, and learned from Michael. Because there are many negative stories about Michael, he wanted to share his story, which is very positive. He talks to RTL Boulevard, a show from the same station that aired the Dutch version of So You Think You Can Dance. He was a finalist on that show, which aired prior to him going to the US, to audition and in the end working with Michael Jackson.



Orianthi Panagaris, the 24 year old blonde guitarist who featured in the final video of Michael Jackson rehearsing before his death has been revealed as an Adelaide girl.

She was a key part of the concert marathon, which was to have begun in London on July 13.
She had been rehearsing with Jackson six days a week for the past three months.

Sunset Driver an outake from the Off The Wall album.



Carousel is an unreleased song that was suppose to be on Thriller but was replaced by Human Nature.



While recording the tracks for Bad, there was some debate between Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones on which songs would be put on the album. For example, they both had a hard time deciding on either "Streetwalker" or "Another Part of Me" (which was recorded for Captain EO in 1986) to be put on the album. Jackson wanted "Streetwalker", whereas Jones wanted "Another Part of Me". Ultimately, it was decided by Jackson's manager Frank Dileo. According to Quincy Jones from "Bad: Special Edition", there was a meeting among the three. In the meeting, Jackson played "Streetwalker" first, and Dileo was not impressed. But Dileo started to dance when "Another Part of Me" came on. This is what eventually put "Another Part of Me" onto the album.



If You Don't Love Me is from the Dangerous recording sessions.

Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever was a 1983 television special produced by Suzanne de Passe for Motown Records, to commemorate Motown's twenty-fifth year of existence. The show was also co-written by de Passe along with Ruth Adkins Robinson who would go on to write shows with de Passe for the next 25 years, including the follow up label tributes—through "Motown 40," Buz Kohan was the head writer of the threesome. The program was taped before a live studio audience at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on March 25, 1983,[1] and broadcast on NBC on May 16. Among its highlights were Michael Jackson's iconic performance of "Billie Jean", a Temptations/Four Tops "battle of the bands", Marvin Gaye's inspired speech about black music history and his memorable performance of "What's Going On", a Jackson 5 reunion, and an abbreviated reunion of Diana Ross & the Supremes, who performed their final #1 hit, "Someday We'll Be Together" from 1969.

Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five

Michael reunited with his brothers Jackie, Marlon, Jermaine, & Tito on stage for the first time in eight years for a medley of their greatest hits, "I Want You Back," "The Love You Save," "Never Can Say Goodbye," and "I'll Be There." Brother Randy, who was not a part of the original Jackson 5, but was a part of the later group The Jacksons (minus Jermaine), also joined the group for the medley.

As the other members of the Jackson 5 left the stage, Michael transitioned dramatically into his own solo spot. Widely hailed as Michael's breakthrough performance as a solo artist, he performed "Billie Jean", which at the time was in the middle of a seven-week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 music charts. Showcasing a dazzling display of physically demanding dance moves and piercing vocals, Jackson unleashed what would become his signature dance move - the moonwalk - to the shrieking delight of everyone in the audience and to the millions of viewers around the world.

The full music video for "Bad" is an 18-minute short film written by novelist and screenwriter Richard Price and based on the case of Edmund Perry. The video was directed by Martin Scorsese and Michael Jackson stars in it. Jackson portrays a boy named Daryl who has just completed a successful term at an expensive private school. He returns to the city by subway, arriving in a derelict neighborhood.

Afbeelding

Daryl arrives to find his house empty (his mother is played by Roberta Flack, albeit in voiceover), but is greeted by his old friends, led by Mini Max (an emerging Wesley Snipes) and spends an evening with them. At first relations are friendly, if slightly awkward, but the situation deteriorates once the rest of the gang realize how much Daryl has changed, and in particular how uncomfortable he has become with their tendencies towards petty crime. In an attempt to show his friends he is still "bad", Daryl takes the gang to a subway station (The Hoyt Schermerhorn Station in Brooklyn) where he attempts to mug an elderly man but bottles out at the last minute. Mini Max berates Daryl and tells him that he's no longer bad.

Afbeelding

After more abuse from Mini Max, the video jumps from black and white to color and Daryl, now dressed head to foot in leather and joined by a crowd of dancing punks, sings "Bad" (it is at this point that the edited video generally begins when played on television). His insistence that Max is headed for a fall are nearly Daryl's undoing, but eventually his friend accepts that "that's the way it goes down", and, after a final handshake, heads off leaving Daryl. The scene shifts back to black and white as Daryl, alone and back in his tracksuit, watching them leave. The video has many references to the 1961 film West Side Story, especially the "Cool" sequence. Not only does it show a street gang dancing in a parking lot, but there are also some parts of the choreography that were influenced by it. The choreographer Jeffrey Daniel confirmed the influence, although they intended to do a more contemporary version of it.



The full 18-minute-long version of the video for "Bad" first appeared on the DVD version of Video Greatest Hits - HIStory in 2001.

Michael Jackson: The Legend Continues

Afbeelding

The Legend Continues, a 1988 Showtime on Motown cable special that also included a documentary on Marvin Gaye, is one of the few documentaries on the subject of Michael Jackson that is totally focused on his extraordinary music career. James Earl Jones provides the narration, that is used to great effect, especially to make points on his career milestones. I consider this a fun documentary to watch about Jackson, before he became known as wacko,jacko to the press.

The viewer will see a montage of footage of Michael performing as a member of the Jackson 5ive, performing their hit songs of the day, when he went solo with the Off The Wall album, and the monster that his album Thriller became around the world. The documentaries also shows how success put Michael Jackson in the company of some of Hollywood's most celebrated movie stars of the 30's, 40's, and 50's. Michael Jackson: The Legend Continues features people like Quincy Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, Gene Kelly, and Sophie Loren.

The Legend Continues is a great documentary that will remind the viewer of what a brilliant, great entertainer Michael Jackson was.

All profits made from the tour were donated to various charities including the Heal the World Foundation.



Following the huge success of the Bad World Tour, Jackson's first solo world tour where he earned $125 million, the star claimed that he would not tour again, and would instead concentrate on making films and records. On February 14, 1992 in a Pepsi press conference, it was announced that Jackson would be touring again. The announcement coincided with a new deal between Jackson and Pepsi, with a reported $20 million deal to sponsor the tour.

All concerts were professionally filmed by Nocturne Productions, Inc. which filmed all of Jackson's tours and private affairs. Just one concert, from Bucharest on October 1, 1992 was broadcast on television across the world. This was released officially on DVD called Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour.

In the 1980s, the pair worked together on the single 'Say Say Say' and 'The Man', which appeared on McCartney's 'Pipes Of Peace' solo record, and later collaborated for Jackson's 'Thriller' album, with McCartney guesting on 'The Girl Is Mine'.

Afbeelding

Say Say Say Music video
Directed by Bob Giraldi, who also directed "Beat It", the music video for "Say Say Say" featured cameo appearances by Linda McCartney, La Toya Jackson and Mr. T. It was filmed in Santa Ynez Valley, California, and McCartney had to fly out to Jackson; the latter's schedule was busy. As "Mac and Jack", the duo play a pair of conmen selling a "miracle potion". The salesman (McCartney) offers Jackson the potion, claiming it's "guaranteed to give you the strength of a raging bull". Jackson drinks the potion and challenges a large man, also in on the scam, to arm wrestle. Upon Jackson winning, the crowd surges forward, hoping to buy the magical potion. With the money earned from the scam, Mac and Jack donate it all to an orphanage. In their hotel, Jackson enters the bathroom while McCartney is shaving. McCartney playfully dabs shaving foam on Jackson's cheek, despite the fact that Jackson does not need a shave. McCartney and Jackson then star as vaudeville performers singing and dancing at a bar. On stage, the duo appear in clown makeup at one point and quickly go through a number of costume changes. Jackson's love interest, with whom he flirts, was played by his sister La Toya. The video ends with Paul, Linda and Michael driving off into the sunset. La Toya, handed a bunch of flowers by McCartney, is left at the roadside. The video cost the singers $500,000 to make.



Their friendship ended in 1985 after Jackson outbid a joint effort by McCartney and Yoko Ono to buy the rights to over 200 Beatles songs - 10 years later, Jackson sold half his stake to Sony.

He earned millions of dollars a year through owning the rights to the remaining tracks, the catalogue being his main source of income after recent financial troubles.

Reports earlier this year suggested that Jackson had planned to leave the rights to McCartney in his will.

Paul McCartney has released a statement on the death of his former collaborator Michael Jackson, who passed away yesterday (June 25).

"I feel privileged to have hung out and worked with Michael. He was a massively talented boy man with a gentle soul. His music will be remembered forever and my memories of our time together will be happy ones," the message reads.

The Jeffersons
Episode 807 (Original Air Date: Apr 21, 2004)

All the children of South Park are attracted to “Mr. Jefferson”, his son and their home filled with games, toys and animals. Cartman goes out of his way to get “Mr. Jefferson” to love him while the local police force resent him for being black and wealthy and decide bring him down.

Afbeelding

Mr. Jefferson, an eccentric man-child, and his son Blanket have moved into the Donovans' old residence. When the boys find out that Mr. Jefferson has arcade games, amusement rides and a small zoo at his house, they spend a lot of time hanging out with Blanket. Kyle in particular becomes concerned for Blanket, as his father is too busy being a child to look after him properly. Cartman defends Mr. Jefferson, who has told him that he is his best friend, and provides free toys and entertainment. At the police station, the police receive a report that a wealthy black family has purchased a house in South Park with cash. Sergent Yates and his team, confirming Mr. Jefferson's suspicions, plan to take him down, just as they did Kobe Bryant — not because he is guilty but because he is black and wealthier than them.



At night, Mr. Jefferson sneaks over to Stan's house, dressed in a Peter Pan outfit, shortly followed along by Cartman. Kyle also shows up, accompanied by Blanket. Kyle explains to Stan that he found Blanket wandering around alone in his yard, and is startled by Mr. Jefferson's presence. Kyle and Stan implore Mr. Jefferson to go back home, but to no avail: he and Blanket insist that they are afraid to go home due to fears of ghosts. Reluctantly, Stan shares his bed with Kyle, Blanket, Cartman and Mr. Jefferson. Cartman tells Mr. Jefferson how much he admires him and just as the two are about to kiss, Stan wakes up to only see that he was dreaming about it.

Afbeelding

In the morning, Randy and Sharon Marsh are alarmed to find Mr. Jefferson sleeping in their son's bed, but he manages to bribe his way out. The Jeffersons return home as the police, having planted evidence in it the night before, wake up in their squad car. Yates is surprised by Jefferson's appearance, believing that someone made a mistake. He states that he no longer has the stomach for it but vows to continue to frame rich black men only if they are black. After seeing Mr. Jefferson dangle his son out of the window, Kyle realizes they have to get Blanket away from him. Blanket, now traumatized, runs away from his father crying. But Jefferson succeeds in calming him down by being playful, and saying "I got your nose". Blanket happily tries to reciprocate, but instead rips his father's nose clean off.

Afbeelding

Mr. Jefferson is on the phone with his plastic surgeon, since he is literally falling apart. In the meantime, the Santa Barbara Police, after revealing their "good police work" in framing him previously, confirm that Mr. Jefferson is the person Yates is looking for. Stan and Kyle dress Kenny up as Blanket in order to sneak the real one out of the house. Jefferson, wearing the Thriller costume, intercepts them and playfully throws Kenny through the ceiling, killing him. The kids are rescued by the cops. While Cartman tries to save Mr. Jefferson from his 'tormentors', Kyle delivers the lesson that he needs to grow up and make a normal life for his son. Realizing he has been missing out on Blanket's childhood, Jefferson plans to give away most of his wealth and get a real job. Seeing that Jefferson will no longer be wealthy, the cops decide to drop the charges, and everybody sings "The Power of Change."
