Michael Jackson has had so much cosmetic surgery that dancers auditioning for his upcoming London concerts say his skin "glows in the dark"
Michael Jackson's skin "glows in the dark".
Twin backing dancers Maya and Nandy McClean met the 'Thriller' singer when they auditioned for his upcoming residency at London's O2 arena.
The Australian-born beauties - who performed with Prince during his 21-night run at the same venue in 2007 - were very excited to catch a glimpse of the pop icon, but were horrified to see his pale skin radiating in the gloomy venue when he climbed on stage.
Maya told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "It was really dark in the auditorium, but his skin was definitely glowing in the dark."
The gorgeous pair - who were rumoured to have been romantically involved with Prince - were among hundreds of professional dancers who showed up to try out when auditions were held at The 02 in April.
More than 400 men fought for six male spots, while over 200 women vied for just two female parts.
The scenes backstage were pandemonium, with people desperately practicing their moonwalks - Jackson's signature dance move - and other famous pieces of dance choreography from the 50-year-old singer's music career.
Maya said: "It was like something straight out of a Jackson video. These were serious fans. A lot of crazy Michael Jackson fans who grew up watching him."
Despite their best efforts, the sisters will not be dancing for Jackson during the 'Billie Jean' singer's 50-date 'This Is It' concert run, which kicks off on July 8.
