He says there will be no Michael Jackson impersonators. "No one can do it the way he was doing it", he said. "Plus, if you're a true Michael Jackson fan, that's him..you want to see him. and that's the challenge, we want to have his presence, a strong presence., on stage like you've never seen before."
MJ as you've never seen before..where have we heard that?

UPDATE: Credit to _Xscape_ for the below find. In the below Associated Press Article, it says "Daniel's creative team is already looking at "This Is It" dress rehearsals to use in the shows".
1. Doesn't Sony own all of the rehearsal footage now? (they paid millions for it)
2. There were full dress rehearsals that exist that weren't shown in the film, but now can be used for this?
3. If there weren't full dress rehearsals, why would they show unfinished "rehearsal" footage when Cirque Du Soleil wants to put on a show to MJ's expectations?
What is this footage Cirque Du Soleil was looking at, and who was showing it to them?
