    Will always be loved. Will always be respected. Who cares about his private life? What is private should be private… he just never got the aid he so desperately needed. Unfortunately it was too late… death was gunna come around the corner for this over-worked legend. We love you, Michael. *Rest In Peace.*

  • blah

    D-mn he still had it!!! If he was alive, that would have been a mindblowing come back!!

    RIP MICHAEL JACKSON

  • tora

    How sad!! RIP

  • Susan

    From my understanding, this video was taken 48 hours or less before his passing. In seeing this video I would have never thought he would have passed away less than a few days later of a cardiac arrest. It really is such a horrible and sad loss.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    it looks like it would have been a really good show from the looks of it
    honestly at the time i really didnt think he would make it through all the shows and that they might not even be good but i got proven wrong

  • docomo

    i bet seeng that vid made his fans even more sad. i also bet it’d be a wonderful show, so damn sad, god.. such a great artist. god bless

  • Pocketful of sunshine

    I loved Michael Jackson since a litle girl!!! When Thriller came out. . . And I was going to one of his concerts in London. I was looking forward to seeing him, but he was taken from us. . . Gone too soon.
    He was a bridge for many, many generations. My grandparents know his songs and even my 5 year old niece.
    He will never die on our hearts.
    RIP Michael Jackson: King of Pop.

  • Jossie

    So sad. . . He looked great, as the Michael Jackson I’ll always remember.
    We love you Michael. I hope you’re doing the moonwalk in heaven!!

  • sigh

    Oh man, he looked so good. So Sad. I truly hope that we’ll get to hear some of his new tunes soon. RIP MJ.

  • darrrrrrrr

    omg and it was just 2 days later :(

    that man was in a league of his own…. just amazing.

    everyone has to go a youtube and watch how the real michael was, so much different from what the likes of the media made him out to be.

    he was just a kid in a man body, thats it! he never had a childhood when he was a child, so he didnt want to grow up properly until he had could recreate one for himself :( such a tragedy!

    put in to youtube ‘michael jackson funny moments’ and you will see a different man to what you thought

  • Rachael

    He looked so happy!!!
    It breaks my heart. I can’t get over his death.
    He will live forever, because legends never die.
    He’s now joined Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, John Lennon, and so many more.
    But Michael. . . he belonged to all of us.
    WE MISS YOU MICHAEL!!!!
    He should have died. . .
    I’M SO SO SO SO SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rachael

    I meant, HE SHOULDN”T HAVE DIED!!!!

    I was skeptical about his future concert performances, too, but everyone’s right, the man still had the magic, in fact, it seemed like he captured a renewed part of himself and took his talent to another level of showmanship again. Michael Jackson was a one of a kind performer, one of the greatest music icons we shall ever know, and, most unfortunately, a tortured genius (as it almost seems to go with the territory bearing such a gift as he did). I hope that he is resting in peace now. We shall remember his unique gift for music and the stage inside our hearts forever. R.I.P. Michael. We shall not forget you. sir. You were one hell of a man and performer!

    PERVERT

  • Taylor

    I’m listening to Ben and I can’t stop crying.
    Why did he have to die so young?
    We were so not prepared to say goodbye to Michael.
    But we will never forget you. You will live in our hearts forever.
    Your music will play in our homes, cars, ipods for generations to come.
    Your dance moves will be repeated by your admirers forever.
    You were a good person. We know that.
    I hope you can be happy now.
    <3 Rest in Peace, friend <3

    “Childhood” lyrics -Micheal Jackson

    Have you seen my Childhood?
    I’m searching for the world that I come from
    ‘Cause I’ve been looking around
    In the lost and found of my heart…
    No one understands me
    They view it as such strange eccentricities…
    ‘Cause I keep kidding around
    Like a child, but pardon me…

    People say I’m not okay
    ‘Cause I love such elementary things…
    It’s been my fate to compensate,
    for the ChildhoodI’ve never known…

    Have you seen my Childhood?
    I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
    Like pirates and adventurous dreams,
    Of conquest and kings on the throne…

    Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
    Look within your heart then ask,
    Have you seen my Childhood?
    People say I’m strange that way
    ‘Cause I love such elementary things,
    It’s been my fate to compensate,
    For the Childhood I’ve never known…

    Have you seen my Childhood?
    I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
    Like fantastical stories to share
    The dreams I would dare, watch me fly…

    Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
    The painful youth I’ve had

    Have you seen my Childhood….

    That’s unsane!

    Everyone needs to separate their perception of the music genius Michael Jackson from the drug-addicted and trouble soul so the children can be saved from the ruin of the Jackson Family.

    A drug-addicted entertainer does not a solid father make. Support the biological mother (Debbie Rowe) of the two eldest children gain custody of her flesh and blood. These children are entering a critical stage of their emotional and psychological development, i.e. puberty, and need to be rescued and placed under a safe umbrella to receive critical assistance from a team of psychotherapists and socialworkers to enable their more fully integrating into a normal domestic environment so as to mature into healthy adults. There is no way the dysfunctional grandparents and siblings can ensure these caucasian children doing so. Give the Jackson Family the money they have always lusted after and free the children to their educated biological Jewish mother for rearing the remainder of their childhood years and throughout college. They have been raised Jewish and there is no way you convert a Jewish child to that of the bizarre Jehovah’s Witness church. Get proactive on behalf of Debbie Rowe!!

  • mel

    Look at the smile on his face at the end just before the lights go down- It sent chills down my spine. He loved performing and he did care about his fans. Maybe needed to care about him self more. Get some sleep Michael. Love u

  • fresh

    Damn. He was coming back in a big way. Now im even more sad.

  • whoa

    wow. the man obviously stil has the moves. that clip was very good.

  • jaxon

    WHY AREN’T HIS DOCTORS BEING ARRESTED FOR MURDER?

    He died from all the drugs they were giving him so they killed him the same as if they shot him with a gun.

    Yes, he still had it. What a show it would have been.

    RIP Michael. You were obviously fighting demons we’ll never understand. Hope you have peace now.

  • Raquel

    WOW this was wonderful, he still had it, no doubt.

    And to the loser’s posting bad things about him calling him names, get a life, you will get your karma!!!

  • mEGAN

    He looks so good!! It’s very upsetting that this was just 48 hours before his death! I was so excited for the comeback tour!!

    Love you Michael!

    Oh and Cheyenne, if you happen to listen to the news… Debbie Rowe is NOT the kids biological mother., they are NOT her flesh and BLOOD. Michael picked what he thought was the best for his children. You need to remember that in 2006 that Debbie gave FULL CUSTODY to Michael.

  • MJ

    Ive had goosebumps while watching the video. It’s so unreal that MJ passed away. It would’ve been a major comeback. He still got the moves, very original!!!!

    MJ will be remembered forever. MJ we’ll miss you.

  • ady

    Can’t Belive he is gone….

    Life is so Fragile!

  • k

    **Yawn** That’s why his “comebacks” never took off, (same ol stuff) he had been doing the same “moves”/ songd since the 80′s – 90′s, People were over him, It’s lame to see that all of a sudden everybody just LOVES him now that he died.
    It’s sad the Michael never got to see all the love he’s been getting and all his albums in the top 10 on iTunes..
    Too late people! dont be a poser.

  • love him

    Is that Childhood lyrics thing really a song he wrote?
    -
    It is self explanitory if it is…

  • love him

    Watching this Video is making me so sad…

  • Greentea

    @love him:

    Yes, that is a song he wrote. A very beautiful one, too.

    Like many others, I was supposed to see him in London. I’ve loved him since I was five, which is now 18 years ago, and he will definitely be missed in my life.

    Sleep tight, Michael, we’ll see you in Neverland when our time is up. <3

  • WOW!!

    It sure looks and sounds like he still had “it” at 50 years young. God Bless his Soul.
