Win tickets to: Michael Jackson HIStory

Kenny Wizz as Michael Jackson9Kenny Wizz (or Wizz as he’s known) has done the moonwalk more times than Michael Jackson ever did. As the world’s No. 1 Jackson impersonator, Wizz has performed as Michael since 1984 and done shows all over the world. He estimates he’s done 15,000 shows in Las Vegas alone.

Right now, he’s in the midst of a two-month U.S. tour followed by trips to Australia and Indonesia. Wizz’ tribute “Michael Jackson HIStory” comes to the Saroyan Theatre on Friday. The show is a recreation of what Jackson did live Jackson — a two-hour performance covering 22 songs from pop icon’s catalog of music.

And the Beehive will be giving away tickets to three lucky readers. Enter to win by leaving a comment below. We want to know what’s your favorite Jackson song and why. For my money, you can’t get better than “Dirty Diana,” which probably tells you how old I am. The contest will run through 5 p.m. Wednesday (June 19). Winners will be chosen at random and notified via email. These are actual, physical tickets, so they will need to be picked up at The Fresno Bee office (1226 E. St.) before 5 p.m. Friday.

Good luck.

When I turned 4 we had a birthday party and in the middle of it, there was a phone call for me and I picked it up and it was Michael Jackson wishing me a happy birthday. I freaked out and was all happy and told him how much I loved “Bad”. Then, my aunt walked in from the other room on the phone also… Jerks. No wonder I didn’t hear the phone ring.

Trinidad Ramos says:

My favorite Michael Jackson song has to be “Billie Jean” because I love the beat to that song, the music video and also I grew up listening to that song. I still listen to it up to this day so good!!

Thriller is my favorite Michael Jackson because the music video is like a mini-movie and it was very creepy, and also I enjoy the Thriller dance too!

Chris says:

I like Smooth Criminal as my favorite Michael Jackson song because it reminds me of that old video game I used to play called Moonwalker, so classic. Also that’s one of the songs they play in the bonus slot machines so fun!!

Tess says:

Billie Jean hands down for me because I like the song soo good and also in the music video whenever Michael steps on a square it lights up so epic.

MIgz says:

Beat It

I remember growing up watching the video and thinking he was the tuffest gangster alive. haha. Also it happened to be on one of the best albums of all time “Thriller”.

Mischelle Andrade says:

Choosing just one Michael song is darn hard.. LOL I really love the whole Invincible album, but if I had to pick a song it would be Earth Song. Every time I hear that song I still cry.

Donna says:

Favorite Michael Jackson song for me is You Are Not Alone because the love song has a lot of meaning to it and that what makes Michael so talented in music because it comes from the heart.

Chad says:

Thriller is my favorite because I like the scary theme and the dance moves.

PTolentino says:

Beat It – The very first concert I ever attended was the Jackson 5 here in Fresno. It was magic for me to be there. That is what Michael Jackson created, MAGIC with all his hits and songs.

Terry r says:

I love the song Billie Jean complete with my 5 year old daughter singing with her silver glove on her hand

Hillary F says:

Danny G says:

I would love to take my wife to this and enjoy time with her.

Mitch Y says:

Can not wait and see this show and have a great time out with friends.

Hip Hip Renee says:

It is much too hard to pick a favorite, but I’ll go with “Scream”, the only song he did with his sister, Janet. Seeing the two Jacksons show their dancing skills and vocal skills together was HUGE at that time.

Erika Chan says:

There are too many songs to pick, but I would say Billie Jean is on the top 5 list. I was a huge fan as a kid and still am. Pick me! Pick me! :)))))

katbon says:

I’ll pick “I’ll Be There” because it’s my hubby’s favorite song (even though it’s a Jackson 5 song). Would love to go, it’s my birthday this week end.

Dade says:

I love MJ

Dade says:

The Way You Make Me Feel is my favorite MJ song because his vocals are phenomenal

ML Mendo says:

Hard to narrow it down to just one favorite song, but it is between: “Black or White”, “Man in the Mirror”, “and you can’t forget “Thriller”. But if I must choose just one, I cast my vote for “Man in the Mirror”. All of these songs have led to some type of change in our society, whether it be in dance video’s or by the way we may have perceived each other.

Lisa says:

Nothing beats his Thriller album, so I like PYT and of course Thriller.

Ovalle says:

My favorite song is is Smooth Criminal. It sounds the most different, like rock, that I didn’t know it was him at first.

Eileen says:

I like Remember the time, very nice sound. Kind of reminds me of old Skool songs.

Erica says:

My favorite M.J song of all time is “The way you make me feel” because Michael was not shy or scared to express his feelings for the girl he wanted. Also the song’s video was one of the 1st of Michael’s videos I saw on MTV (back when MTV actually showed music videos) Hope I win!!

Larry Prosper says:


Michael M says:

I love all of MJ’s music but, You Rock My World doesn’t get the creative due it deserves.

Dona Shurtz says:

I grew up with his music, memorized all of the Jackson 5 songs and continued being a fan until the end. A great loss to the music world. I would love to revisit his performances and talant by a devoted new artist.

Blanca Lamas says:

Smooth Criminal
Because my husband says that his theme song. Lol

Johnathon M says:

Gotta love Michael when he danced. “Bad” was just to good…

Bill J. says:

My favorite song is “Billie Jean.” Watch Michael Jackson on YouTube perform it at the Motown 25 show and you’ll know why.

Lisa O says:

I really like his classic stuff. Like Pretty Young Thing.
