This Is It premiere

We were told there would be 1,000 Michael Jackson impersonators. Actually, they meant 1,000 prospective guests, and one MJ impersonator, and two back up dancers. A lot of time was spent rallying the crowd and getting celebrities to sign a giant poster. It was boring.

The crowds gather.

Some Chinese dude with way too much plastic surgery makes his appearance.

Popular with the media. And the ladies. Some people kept screaming, “Michael! Michael!” like this was the real deal.

A classic China moment occurred when the first celebrity walked out onto the stage… and the banner she was to sign slowly started peeling away from the set.

It took the MC a long time to notice what was up. Then he just stood around awkwardly waiting for the banner to be fixed by two dudes with staple guns. It was kind of a climactic moment.
