Michael Jackson died after a sleepness night following an exhausting performance

The rehearsal ended around midnight Wednesday night with a performance of Earth Song. The singer hugged his dancers, thanked the crew and wished them a good night. "God bless you," Patterson and Grant recalled him saying.

SHOOT: How awful. I know the desperate panicky feeling when one desperately needs to rest but can't.

Soon after Jackson arrived home, he started complaining of fatigue and that he needed sleep.
Murray, according to a police affidavit, was concerned Jackson was addicted to propofol, a powerful anaesthetic normally used only in medical settings with special equipment on hand. He told police he was trying to wean Jackson from propofol and had not given him the drug for two nights.
At around 01:30 on Thursday, June 25, he again tried this approach, giving Jackson a 10mg Valium tablet. The anti-anxiety medication had no immediate effect and about a half hour later, the doctor gave 2mg of lorazepam, another medication from the same family as Valium, administered through a saline drip.
When Jackson remained awake, Murray administered a 2mg dose of midazolam, another sedative, at 03:00, then another 2mg of lorazepam at 05:00.
By 07:30, Jackson remained awake. Murray told police he injected another 2mg of midazolam into Jackson's drip.
Still, Jackson could not sleep.
