This Is It director Kenny Ortega introduced the movie at the Nokia Theater in Downtown Los Angeles Tuesday evening and said that Michael Jackson was “all about love.”
The film started at 6:15 pm and opened with Michael’s dancers explaining how much MJ meant to them. The crowd went wild with shouts of Michael Jackson we love you!
Those in the audience clapped wildy after each music number. To say MJ was a perfectionist is an understatement. MJ was involved with each element of the performances. Ortega and MJ worked tirelessely in prepartion for the concerts in London.
The crowd went nuts for the video montage of Thriller, Beat It, and Billy Jean.
