I was sooo waiting on some updated information about my MJ and family. AND this is what I get....Slow day there TMZ. He was too much of a perfectionist to even mess up during practice. STOP IT WITH THE MJ BASHING, NOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

34. What was that rapid, back & forth thing with his arm?? Tell me you didn't see that?? No wobbling though! And "MY GOD, THAT VOICE!! SO BEAUTIFUL"!!! So wonderful to hear him sounding that good! So thin though. He's always been thin, looking back over his video's throughout the years though. Probably couldn't stand to lose a lot of weight without looking gaunt like this. He is still a beautiful sight to me!! Can't wait to see this movie. Only wish he were here to do it "live" for us. How will there be a dry eye in the theater???

Gotcha! The name of the move makes sense. Just never saw him do THAT before! Knew it wasn't a "wobble" because it was clearly a "purposeful" movement. That you for answering the question though!

I guess they are pointing out that crazy lil hip thrust move (it reminds me of something you would see from the Crows in The Wiz) But - I was expecting A real wobble like - he lost his balance or something.. don't Talk about a move a dance like he didn't mean to do it. Cause Clearly he did! Mike was fine. He at points may have been drugged up who knews but he wasn't ill and at this point all would I have seen of the footage there was nothing wrong with Michael Jackson. And he would be in week 4 or 5 of his tour if he didn't have a drug problem or a dr(ugdealer). That couldn't say no.

I think he looks fine, and im with you #33 all he wanted was sleep he didnt get that doc until a month or so before his concerts, and to know he was the most sued entertainer is heartbreaking, He fought as best as he could but he is only human ppl tend to forget that . His voice is amazing... and it was live! most singers out now sound horrible live. RiP Mj... cant wait to see the movie

Extremely thin, no wobbling but also dusting off the old cobb web from not rehearsing in years. This is just what he needed and unfortunately his negligent doctor was the last in line to throw up the red flag of a serious situation. Money got in the doctors way instead of seeking out a specialized treatment recovery for Michael. So sad

Come'on TMZ, are you kidding? Can't think of anything else to write? I don't see no 'wobbling'. Do you realize that Michael Jackson was rehearsing? He was in the process of working out the choreography to go with the vocals with Kenny Ortega. Don't you understand the word "rehearsal"? Besides, he sounded awesome and the movements are firm and swift. Gosh, you journalists should get a life.

The only two things I noticed is that he was soooo ungodly thin, and the second thing was his outfit had changed.
