Director, Kenny Ortega, answers that controversy on:

Do you agree with him?

no there weren't any body doubles in the movie. i think michael jackson looks unique enough to spot anything close to a body double. all the singing, dancing and performing was done by him.

NO, and again...NO!! There were no body doubles....I wish that people would stop saying that!! Please, give the man the credit he deserves!!! It was all Michael all the time, every dance movement was performed by The Man himself..... Yes, it was amazing to see this 50 year old Man out dance trained dancers half his age......Simply marvelous!!
So, please people.....Give Michael Joesph Jackson, the credit he deserves, IT WAS HIM, ALL HIM IN THE MOVIE, "THIS IS IT", DOING WHAT HE DID BEST.... SINGING AND DANCING!!

Per Kenny Ortega they used a stuntperson durlng the SMOOTH CRlMlNAL number only ln order to prevent lnjury to MJ. Kenny sald lt was on the SLlDlNG DOWN THE BANNlSTER On THE STAlRS part and the JUMPlNG THROUGH THE "GLASS" WlNDOW part. Other than that, lt's THE GREATEST ENTERTAlNER lN THE WORLD, MlCHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON, speaklng, slnglng, danclng, actlng, laughlng, belng hls own AWE-lNSPlRlNG, lNCREDlBLY BEAUTlFUL (lnslde & out), LOVlNG, UNBELlEVABLY TALENTED SELF. My world has not been nor wlll lt ever be the same slnce he left us here much to soon. Rest ln Peace My Brother, praylng to see you agaln one sweet day.
