Trivia Edit

  • Gilrfriend, One Day in Your Life and Remember The Time appear in the proposed setlist leaked in May 2009, but were never actually rehearsed.
  • State of Shock, Butterflies, Speechless, and Off the Wall were cut halfway through the show's development. A few vocal excerpts from Speechless later made it into Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'.
  • Who Is It and Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground) were rehearsed as interlude segments.
    • A background image in the movie implies that State of Shock was rehearsed, despite the idea of Michael performing it being scrapped. This could be interpreted as the song being relegated to an interlude segment, as well.
  • Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough and Smooth Criminal were the first songs Michael chose for the setlist.
  • Starting in 2018, Jonathan Moffett, Michael's longtime drummer, began releasing band rehearsals of the songs rehearsed for This Is It on his YouTube channel. As of June 25, 2019, the J5 Medley, I Just Can't Stop Loving You, Dangerous, We Are the World / Heal the World, Black or White, and Will You Be There have not had their rehearsals released.
    • If State of Shock was ever rehearsed, its band rehearsal also has yet to be released.
  • Bad was also rumored to be performed on selected dates and that You Rock My World would occasionally replace The Way You Make Me Feel. However, this has never been confirmed.
  • Best of Joy, a song from the 2010 posthumous album, Michael, would have been performed on the last night.
