Throughout the night, each of Delisco's songs was followed up with one of Jackson's signature squeals of delight that the audience happily echoed back at the performer.

While ending the show with “Thriller,” the famous monster dance epic, Delisco invited all children to the stage to do their best monster dance.

The hilarity that ensued watching Delisco demonstrate complicated dance moves to elementary-age students rounded off the show nicely.

While audience members danced and sang the songs of Jackson, whose catalog stretched throughout the decades and is littered with hits, Delisco made no mention of the tainted days of Jackson's final years and through his performance, he made the crowd forget as well.

This show was strictly about the music career of the King of Pop, and what a career he had.
