Paul Gongaware, who is an executive for AEG Live which was promoting Jackson's planned series of comeback concerts in 2009, took the stand Wednesday morning. He explained to jurors that he had watched the pop superstar perform at the singer's final two rehearsals and says Jackson appeared engaged and energetic.

It is the second day of the trial of Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with Jackson's death. He faces up to four years in prison and loss of his medical license if convicted.
