Michael Jackson Was 'So Happy' The Night Before His Death

Michael Jackson Was 'So Happy' The Night Before His Death-photo

Michael Jackson spent his final night alive doing what he loved—singing and dancing.

The "King Of Pop" spent the evening of June 24 at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, practicing for his upcoming string of comeback concerts at the O2 arena in London.

Despite Jackson showing up three hours late for the rehearsal and appearing "listless" and "lethargic," his manager Frank DiLeo says that Michael's performance was "amazing."

DiLeo told the Hollywood Reporter, "Michael rehearsed 10 or 11 songs. He sang and danced, not always at full power, but the way you do for a run-through. When the show was over, he called me, but I was in the back getting something. He found me and said, 'Frank, I am so happy.' He said he was just so happy. He said, 'This is really our time.' He put his arm around me."

Jackson was pronounced dead the following day at 2:26 p.m. PST after suffering cardiac arrest.

    The world has lost a fantastic legend. Michael will be greatly missed as one of the best pop music musicians that ever lived. I grew up with his music and he touched a part of my life that I will never forget. May you rest in peace Michael.

    tears? stop cutting onions while reading stories on the internet. duh. DUNDIES I AGREE.........."THE LEGEND OF KING OF POP FOR ETERNITY"! MY RESPECTS AND CONDOLENCES TO ALL HIS LOVED ONES. MICHAEL WILL ALWAYS BE A LEGEND FOR HIS MUSICAL TALENT IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, VERY INSPIRATIONAL AND ESPECIALLY HIS DANCE MOVES WERE TOTALLY AWESOME. HE WAS LARGER THEN LIFE......... MAY HE REST IN PEACE......... FOR INDIVIDUALS LIKE Stallown3d: THAT THINK THEY ARE SO PERFECT! YOUR DEATH WILL BE COMING IT'S THE WAY OF THE LIFE CYCLE....."BIRTH, LIFE, DEATH"! IF YOU WAS NOT WORTH NOTHING IN YOUR LIFE! THEN NOBODY WILL NOT NOTICE WHEN YOU DIE! JUST REMEMBER THAT YOUR FAMILY AND LOVED ONES ARE THE ONES THAT WILL BE DISTRAUGHT HERE ON EARTH MOURNING FOR YOU........BECAUSE THEY LOVED YOU! THEN THERE WOULD BE PEOPLE LIKE YOU SAYING RUDE, ULGY, AWFUL AND IGNORANT COMMENTS ABOUT YOU ....... WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR FAMILY IF A SITUATION LIKE THIS SHOULD HAPPEN! JUST HORRIBLE IF IT WOULD OCCUR! WOULD YOU HAVE SYMPATHY FOR YOUR FAMILY?
