They had spent the day in Las Vegas rehearsing with Michael Jackson ONE artists, the show’s Artistic Director and coaches, and choreographer Travis Payne, getting some Michael Jackson inspiration in advance of their season finale performance next Monday, November 25, on ABC.

After watching the show the couple went backstage to see all of their friends from earlier in the day and couldn’t stop saying how excited and inspired they were for their performance, with Corbin even saying the show made such an impact on him that he wanted to start singing again.
