Less than 24 hours before his death, Michael Jackson had said that he felt his This is It show was like a dream.
The Thriller hitmaker’s film crew had revealed his last words to them less than 24 hours before his death. “The night before he died we had completed all of the physicality of the show as it would have been staged at the O2,” the Daily Express quoted Kenny Ortega, producer and director of This Is It, which was released last week, as saying.
“Michael stood out at the front of the stage that night with me and looked out into the empty arena and said, ‘This is the dream. We did it good, Kenny. We did it’. There was this feeling in the air, and in our minds we were already on the plane. Michael said, ‘You can feel London. You can smell it’,” he added.
Associate producer and choreographer Travis Payne revealed as Jackson climbed up the golf cart to reach his waiting car after rehearsal, he shouted ‘I love you’ to him and MJ smiled back and said ‘I love you more’.
“That was the last time I saw him – the last time any of us saw him,” Payne added.
