The Late Movies: Michael Jackson Covers

Mark Arminio

Tonight for the Late Movies, enjoy an assortment of clips featuring Michael Jackson songs.

At the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security prison in the Philippines, MJs choreographer Travis Payne showed up to teach the inmates some of the dances from THIS IS IT. The video is pretty impressive.

This, of course, is not the first video you may have seen from the prison. Their version of "Thriller" made its way around the internet a few years back.

Here is one man with his accordion belting out Billie Jean.

Ever wondered what Fred Astaire would look like in Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" video? Wonder no longer.

Ben Gibbard, the lead singer of Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service, performs a cover of "Thriller" for a live audience on acoustic guitar.

Finally, from Stockholm, here is an MJ tribute dance featuring "Beat It" by Bounce & Friends, an international urban dance community.

There's a whole world of unique Michael Jackson covers out there. Share links to your favorites in the comments.
