'Ghost of Michael Jackson' photographed

A picture taken by a teenager of a Michael Jackson impersonator turned out to feature a ghostly extra.
14-year-old Reece Savva had been waiting in line at a Michael Jackson tribute concert for the impersonator's autograph when he decided to take some photographs.

Later when he reviewed the images he noticed something unusual in one of the shots - a strange blue figure in one corner that seemed to bear an uncanny resemblance to the late King of Pop himself.

"It was so eerie," he said. "There was nothing there at all when I was waiting in line. I have no idea what happened on that one picture, but it's terrifying. It was like something out of Thriller."

The photograph can be viewed - here.

Could the 14-year-old have really captured the image of Michael Jackson haunting the tribute acts or is there a more conventional explanation for this photographic anomaly ?

I'm sorry but I have to say this is nothing more than a publicity stunt, and a poor one at that. Looks like he is being photo-bombed by one of the cast of Avatar, certainly not being visited by a dead celebrity.

So what is the blurry area between the performer and the ghost? Is it a bad edit or is part of his head in another dimension?

Just wondering what MJ would actually look like in ghostly form, a black man or his sister Janet Jackson? Was hard to know if photos of him when he was alive were actually of him. He was always having work done.

Forget the blatant photoshop, what's an impersonator doing signing autographs?!
