Why the King of Pop wore tape in his fingers?

Michael Beardon (Musical Director of This Is It) reveals the reason why...

I asked him one day “MJ, why you have tape on your hands?” I always wanted to know that and it was a great gig for me because I would have him personally and it was one of those gigs where he would say, “If you had this person alone, what would you ask him?” and I took full advantage of it. And to his graciousness, he would say to me, “You really want to know?” and he would just honestly tell me and he never turned me down. The tape on his fingers he says “Well, ‘cause it feels good.” It was like a batter in a batters box. The hands have to feel a certain way. But then it was also that if he throws his hand that way, the white, your eye goes to it. So there’s no wasted moment. It’s a show biz thing. You just go “Bam!” You’re looking at his movement but that eye, that white will always catch you. You just … So you’re on stage doing that. It’s just one of his show biz tricks that he learned when he was a kid.

This is itの音楽監督、マイケル・べアデンが、ある日マイケルに指のテープの謎を訊いたそうです。
マイケルの答えは、うーーん、いい感じだからさってことらしいです。
打席に立つバッターのようなものらしくて。手にはある種の感覚が必要なんだそうです。
それに、白い手をある方向に動かしたら、観客の目は白い色に引きつけられ、(観客の注意を引きつけるのに)時間の無駄がありません。ショービジネスの世界のテクニック。観客はマイケルの激しい動きを追いつつも、白にいつも注目する。マイケルが子供のころに学んでステージでやっているショービジネスのトリックのひとつだということです。
