Choreographer: Jackson Pulled it Together in Final Rehearsals
LOS ANGELES — A choreographer on Michael Jackson’s doomed “This Is It” concert series testified Monday she was frustrated the singer was missing rehearsals but that her concerns were swept away during the last two preparation sessions for his anticipated “This Is It” comeback concerts in London.
“I finally saw what I was looking to see,” said Stacy Walker.
Walker said she was so encouraged she told her mother to buy a ticket for opening night in London. “I was very excited and relieved and hopeful,” she testified.
The testimony, coming in the third week of a wrongful-death trial in downtown Los Angeles, followed earlier reports from witnesses who described Jackson as being in such feeble health that they doubted he could pull off the 50-concert series.
