CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Would you believe it if we said Michael Jackson, King of Pop, was the connection between two guests Tuesday on our show?

Yep. Omar Edwards is starring 'Fly' at Playhouse in the Park, which tells the story of World War II's famed Tuskegee Airmen. Turns out, Edwards first taught MJ how to tap dance!

Michael Bush is appearing at Joseph Beth Booksellers Tuesday evening signing his new book, "King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson." So yes, you guessed it. Bush was one of Michael Jackson's longtime costume designers.

The two had never met in person until their coincidental run-in at the FOX19 Morning News (We pride ourselves on reuniting MJ fans).
