Update: Thrill The World 2009

In 2008, 4,179 people attempted the Guinness Book Record for the most people simutaneously doing Michael's Thriller Dance. Here's a clip of all the locations in one video from 2008. Last year, Michael watched the Los Angeles event from a heliocopter.

2009--the first year without Michael. Will the record be broken? There are 349 official locations who registered with a goal of 207,000 participants. Articles below: "Before" means articles written before the event, and "After" is to report the event itself.
**Reports vary from an estimated 20,000 to 23,000 participated!!

Another aspect of this event, is to raise money for charities. Possibly the Thrill the World officials will be able to tally a total figure donated in Michael's name.

This wlll be updated often!
