MICHAEL JACKSON's "This Is It" movie debuted last night around the world. The documentary film, culled from more than 100 hours of behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, follows JACKSON as he prepares for a 50-concert run in London.
JACKSON died just weeks before that tour began.
ABC NEWS reports celebrities such as WILL SMITH, JENNIFER LOPEZ, PAULA ABDUL and PARIS HILTON "braved the blustery winds, screaming fans and more than 100 media crews at the NOKIA THEATER to be the first to see video of THE KING OF POP in the months before he passed away."
"I'm sitting in the NOKIA THEATER in awe of the 'This Is It' movie! So many emotions are coming up for me I can't believe he's gone -- BRILLIANT," ABDUL tweeted.
