As from being a fan for over 17 years and attended over 7 different Michael Jackson event, this was the very first time I saw Michael Jackson, not the first time of being in London since it would be my 4th time in total, but experience the magic with friends and fans I got to know from my last MJ events this was something we would do together, see Michael together and experience it together.
9.30pm – Arrived to
the hotel of mine
We decided to head back to our hotel since Michael didn’t appear anymore times that night and we had to get up really early to go to Earls Court.
9am – 15th of November – Arriving to Earls Court.
We came up there about 9 in the morning and there were already quite
a lot of people there standing and talking to each other and stuff, I
met up with my friends there. I told them about my experience the other
day and they all got so happy that I got so close to Michael, while I
was talking to my friends a camera man came up and wanted to tape me,
he asked me bunch of questions about Michael and I gratefully said that
“I love Michael with all my heart, he has such a strong young heart
and we’ve been standing by his side from the very first moment
Enough of that we
got in and got our seats and I must say that it was a HUGE arena, there
was fans everywhere, you could spot them on different places from where
I sat, the minute we got our seats we could hear chants and screams for
Michael that was such an amazing feeling knowing we were all there for
one purpose only; seeing Michael Jackson! Everyone had the same thought
as I. I still hadn’t gone over the fact that I was inches away from
Michael the other day and that I actually had the chance to meet him and
talk to him. While sitting there I had my mind on Michael the entire time,
it felt incredible knowing that I was close to people that had the same
adoration as I, loving Michael no matter what, supporting him no matter
what and being loyal no matter what. Through my years of being a fan and
been on several Michael Jackson events Europe over, meeting Danish, Norwegian,
Finish, German, Holland, French, British and Russian fans we all have
ONE thing in common, Michael Jackson.
The show opened up with Beyonce singing “Déjà vu” from her latest album “Bday” she sang with so much force and I was sitting and dancing along with her music, she was one of the highlights this evening, she was sparkling on stage with her beautiful glitter-red dress and her hair all loose.
The show was alright but it wouldn’t have been a success if Beyonce,
Chris Brown and Michael had been there! They were lighting up the show
and Lindsay Lohan who by the way hosted the show didn’t do a good
job, she was messing around with the acts, she was messing around with
the words and forgot what she was about say and all, I felt sorry for
her because she was trying to do a very good job she was just very nervous
and things got worse when fans and people in general started to boo her
Chris Brown was about to perform with Thriller as a tribute to Michael Jackson, according to sources it was 25 years ago Thriller was set to release and from the time it was out as a album it has sold more then 104 million copies. Everybody was standing up and chanting and screaming when he performed, it was magnificent and he did a great job.
The time had passed 10.30pm when it was time for Michael to appear on stage, we were all nervous of what might happen, I couldn’t sit still I was chanting “Michael” (according to a friend of mine he counted that I shouted Michael 58 times!) and when Beyonce came out on stage and presented Michael to us I couldn’t bare myself, I just couldn’t stop screaming, my heart was pounding real fast and I was crying and shaking the entire time. My prince were before me yet again, but so far away, he had a very warm and beautiful and soft voice when he spoke, I just got so warm all inside when he spoke. I did take some photos of Michael which I am very, very proud of. Michael appeared later on by coming out singing “We Are the World” with a choir, I managed to tape it but I was so shaky so it’s very hard to see anything at all on the video but you can spot him a few times and that’s all matters!
After the show I had heard from different people that there was a after-party after all and I managed to get the address of it and was on my way over there when I suddenly decided to not go there, when we came out I was standing and talking to some friends of mine when all of sudden Michael’s car came passing by. I just dropped everything and was running over the car and managed get me up front his window, I knocked on it and waved to Michael and he looked at me and I lip-synched “I love you” and he blew me a kiss and said I love you more. That had to be one of the best times in my life, being so close to Michael’s car and being able to touch it as well. I wanted to get out of the mess but I somehow was surrounded by hundreds of fans trying to get near the car and I couldn’t get out of there, but I lurked my way through the crowd and the car was speeding off and I decided to run after it a bit, I was holding on tight to my belongings and just shouted “I love you Michael” while it was speeding off. It was total chaos, fans were falling and one girl was falling down on the ground and people kept on just running and running after the car, we knew that we had to hurry back to his hotel to be able to see him one last time. I was heading home a few hours later so I wanted to see Michael the last time before I headed home to Sweden!
There were probably 300-400 fans outside his hotel chanting Michael, I didn’t do that because I wanted to show respect since his children was asleep and his guards came out and asked us to leave since he told everyone that Michael was asleep, but I didn’t leave because I knew that he was lying, there were probably 40-50 fans left around 1.30-5.00am in the morning. At one point we got to learn that Michael was thinking of taking up some few fans up to his hotel meeting him, but that didn’t happen and the reason why I won’t write about it because it’s confidential, instead Michael had sent down his guards to get all of us pizza. And these are the words the bodyguards told us: “This is from Michael”, that was such an amazing gesture of Michael thinking about us. We will be forever grateful because of that, and Michael if you read this we would like to express our happiness and thankfulness because of that, thank you so much! When the van came back we all rushed to the car and got ourselves a box, knowing that not everyone would get a box, but I managed to get myself a box and I will never ever forget this trip.
It was my first time ever and I will never forget seeing Michael so close, he was smiling to me, he was waving to me, he was telling me he loved me and I got a pizza from him. Thank you so much!! See you next time Michael!
All my love
