Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Tops Dance Film Survey

Michael Jackson has topped a poll of the greatest dance moments ever captured on film.
The King of Pop's creepy routine in the horror-themed promo for his 1984 track Thriller beat out competition from the cast of High School Musical and their performance of We're All In This Together.
Third place in the Disney Channel survey went to dancer Tobias Mead's jaw-dropping audition for U.K. TV show Britain's Got Talent in 2010, and Jackson's iconic Smooth Criminal routine came fourth. Hannah Montana's Hoedown Throwdown and Beyonce's Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) promo are joint fifth in the poll.
Jackson was also named the King of Dance, ahead of British boy band Jls, High School Musical star Zac Efron, and singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake.

I believe that MJ's "Ghosts" video would knock "Thriller" right out of the box. I can't believe that no one talks about "Ghosts", because it is brilliantly genius. The short film is 38 minutes long, filled with brilliant special effects, and I'm here to tell you that Michael Jackson was capable of scaring the hell out of you. Michael partnered with Stephen King to create "Ghosts" story of a mysterious Maestro who is being accosted by a mob of townfolk, from the town of Some Place Else", led by the mayor, an arrogant, obese man who strongly reminds you of Tom Sneddon (the main prosecutor in Jackson's bogus child sexual abuse case). The movie includes a series of dance routines performed by Michael Jackson and his "family" of ghouls dancing to music taken from Michael Jackson's "HIStory" and "Blood on the Dance Floor" albums. During the credits, behind-the-scenes footage of Michael's make-up sessions and green screen shots reveals how Michael was able to play five different characters in the film; The Cast list credits Michael playing the roles of the "Maestro", "Mayor" (which explains the mayor's dance routine performance), "Mayor Ghoul" (horribly transformed mayor), "Superghoul" ,a giant, monster version of Maestro, and "Skeleton" (a CGI dancing skeleton, animated by Michael through motion capture).If you haven't seen "Ghosts" just Google up , Michael Jackson Ghosts, and you will have several choices where to view this video for free. If you are like me you will want to buy the DVD because no Michael Jackson collection is complete without this masterpiece.
