Cirque Du Soleil show creator Jamie King has said that he thinks Michael Jackson has "guided their latest work" from the grave, saying that some of the staff that worked on the show "thought that MJ had helped them create their latest hit."
The Las Vegas show has been written in the Thriller superstar's memory and according to The Mirror, workers feel like Jackson is more than willing to help out from his grave.
Sound designer Jonathan Deans confirmed as he watched dress rehearsals he could feel Jackson in the purpose built theatre at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
Award winning Deans, from London, said: "His presence is definitely here. You close your eyes and he's in the room," adding: "Hopefully he will be sitting here saying that is great."
Jamie said: "I have sensed from the very beginning at Michael has been with me all along. I am not just the story creator and director, but that I am the co director with Michael."
He continued: "My intention from the very beginning was to create a show that Michael would wanted to create himself, so I do not do that alone."
Asked if he could feel his presence around him during rehearsals Jamie added: "Absolutely. I didn't make one decision that I felt Michael wouldn't have wanted."

Fans have seen the King Of Pop basically be resurrected on the show, when a life size hologram appeared on stage at the opening night on Saturday and the paper also reports that some concert goers even broke down in tears as the music legend sang and danced away to his hit Man In The Mirror.
One guest Jo Booth, from Los Angeles, admitted: "I thought it was Michael on the stage at that moment. I felt my heart stop and I just broke down. It was so powerful."
"I wasn't the only one crying. A lot of us were reaching for our handkerchiefs, I felt like Michael was back in the room and it sent shivers down the back of my spine."
