"It was very emotional for me and I was trying not to cry. And I got choked up a few times. It gave me goosebumps. I thought [the dancers] looked incredible. They had just learned it. [It's] just like you're seeing all these carbon copies of your brother, and because he left such an impression with his style on so many different generations — and, still, this generation — and to see them try to mimic him to the T and doing an incredible job at it as if he was the one that taught them — 'No, this is how you do it' — and to see them look so close to his movement, it just touched me. It really touched me."
