============================================================
This sequence was registered July 2, 2009Work began June 23, 2009MICHAEL WAS REHEARSING BEFORE THAT.  THE SEQUENCE THEY WERE GOING TO USE FOR THE RELEASE OF T11 WAS FOR THE 23 ONWARD

The last copyright was for the movie which was registered 10/28/2009

Michael rehearsed more than two days.  There was supposed to be a tour.  You cannot prepare without the main attraction.  The auditions were not fake.  Those kids didn't fly from all over the world for nothing.  There were bound to be some of the same dancers chosen that had been in other projects.  Travis himself was once Michael's dancers before he became his choreographer.  Kenny has know Michael for years.  This was an immense amount of work and no doubt Michael did choose certain cuts that he was happy with.  That makes sense.

This girl on twitter told me he wanted to do 10 shows and make a dvd about them and cancel the other 40.
She says he knew he couldn't do 50 concerts.

Quote from: "alovesmichael"
I don't fully get the "it was supposed to be a film" theory. I mean yes I know the facts but that does not necesssarily rule out the concerts. Even if it was meant to be a film it does not definitelt mean there weren't gonna be any concerts. They might have wanted to do both which is not impossible at all since it's a "concert documentry2 kind of. Also for those who think there were doubles (still not sure myself) why would Michael even want to use doubles for some of those scenes? He's a perfectionist and that just does not make sense.

I've said it before and I say it again, he may have had to leave in a hurry (maybe catch a plane to an undisclosed destination) therefore, he couldn't finish all the film, hence the use of doubles.

The people who were there, technical people, lighting people etc. who have spoken say Michael came for the "dancer auditions, many business/production meetings and was involved in all aspects of creative production." They say Michael was at Culver City from June 1st through June 10th for the DOME project and filming of the 3D and 2D films which included green screen. That explains why everyone was so excited for "And Michael's coming today. There's The Man. The Man is here." They say after that he did not return again until June 23rd which was the first rehearsal day at the Staples Center. So the 23rd and 24th were clearly planned to be the audiovisual/sound track recordings for the motion picture. That's the ONLY way that any of this makes any sense.

All of Michael's on-stage performances were shot in those two days, the 23rd and 24th, and he has several wardrobe changes to make it look like many different days, but the back-up singers and dancers' wardrobe changes do not coincide with Michael's. For instance Orianthi has on the silver dress and sparkling boots while Michael goes through 4 changes of clothes. Orianthi is the easiest one to keep up with because of the "sparkly" outfit but if one pays close attention, you will clearly see that Michael is changing clothes and no one else is.  Clearly, June 23rd and June 24th were shot for the "motion picture" and that is why it is 'PRE-REGISTERED IN THE COPYRIGHT DATABASE" as such.  

can you show me this - with orianthi - please - very interesting

can some one either do a back to back still of the dancers from both film/rehearsal footage?

or show the dancers names from both movies/rehearsal footage?

just because some of the dancers are the same does not mean that it was all fake, the dancers could have been just good

If all the onstage rehearsals were from two days at the Staples Centre when did Orianthi have time to have a hairdresser do the colour change and hair extensions?

Hmmm... Do I detect the same outfit for Orianthi while Michael's clothes have changed... ?





Regarding the dancers... If you go to MJFanForeverAndADay's youtube account, she has a made a wonderful video that provides some great evidence proving that they were all infact chosen before the "Auditions" we were shown.

While we're speaking of the dancers has anyone been paying any attention to Timor's facebook status lately? (and yes, it's his legit facebook). Apparently the This Is It dancers have all started rehearsing together again, but for what?! They started rehearsing again not too long ago and they go from 11 to 7pm! Then he had one status that read, and I quote:

"When miracles happen they do for a reason....so when u see or feel it make shure u know how 2 act."

Are they rehearsing for "BAMs day" possibly? And is that what he's referencing in this status? Anyway, just found that interesting.

They're actually in rehearsal today... His current status is "In rehearsal...in Creating Process!!!...Love"
Hmmm.

but was it just the mj's jacket, maybe he spilled something on the other, just playing devils advocate here.

he is wearing the faded black pants that we see on the 23rd said the be the last day of footage, when it was 24th.

it is suspicious. lets look into this - very interesting.

any others?
