Dancing with the Stars marked the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson's Bad with MJ-themed routines, as well as a more unusual set of dances last night.

First, the pairs performed mixed-up routines, blending uncommon styles with unusual themes. Then, they celebrated Bad with traditional ballroom numbers.

This summer, So You Think You Can Dance producer Nigel Lythgoe had this awesome Michael Jackson-dance-tribute episode of the Fox hit planned. He even had Paula Abdul putting it together ... until Team MJ nixed it at the last minute.

Whether it was Sony or the [Jackson] family estate, SYTYCD could not get the music cleared legally, as they must to use it on the show. Which is too bad.
