Australian choreographer Wade Robson has lost his bid to grill representatives of Michael Jackson's estate about graphic sexual acts he alleged the late King of Pop performed on him as a child.

"I think the types of questions we are are asking are appropriate," Robson's lawyer Maryann Marzano told Los Angeles Superior Court judge Mitchell Beckloff during Thursday's hearing.

Marzano wanted to probe the heads of Jackson's estate with questions ranging from whether Jackson put his hands inside Robson's underpants to whether Jackson committed various sexual acts on Robson.

Jackson lawyer Jonathan Steinsapir said his clients have already denied anything sexual took place between Jackson and Robson.

"Now they want us to deny Michael Jackson put his hand on Wade Robson's penis," Steinsapir told judge Beckloff.

"We have denied that."

At the end of the hearing, Marzano agreed to withdraw 11 of the questions, but Robson's lawyers will be allowed to probe Jackson executives about other matters.

Robson, who was a five-year-old dance prodigy in Brisbane when he first met Jackson, had been one of the pop star's biggest supporters.

Robson testified under oath at Jackson's 2005 molestation trial in Santa Barbara that Jackson never abused him. He adamantly denied that he was ever abused by the pop star.

Robson was a key reason for Jackson's acquittal.

However, last year Robson did an about-face and claimed Jackson was a sexual predator who brainwashed him.

Jackson died in 2009 and Robson now wants a slice of the entertainer's estate that's estimated to be worth around $US1.5 billion ($A1.6 billion).

Robson said it wasn't until after Jackson's death and the birth of his own son that he was psychologically and emotionally able to understand that Jackson had sexually abused him.

Robson filed a late claim in the Los Angeles court against the dead singer's estate.

Robson became one of the world's top dance choreographers, winning an Emmy Award for his work on US TV and was hired by acts including Britney Spears and NSYNC.

Robson's lawyers say Robson was so traumatised by Jackson molesting him he could no longer dance, sing or write songs

The matter was adjourned to December 16.

Aussie singer dancer. Prinnie Stevens to Headline in "Thriller Live".Show

Prinnie Stevens will get to live out a childhood dream when she pays tribute to Michael Jackson and his signature dance moves on stage.

Thriller Live has just entered the record books as the 20th longest running musical in West End...and it's coming to Australia.

The Hist show is over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco in a show that pays homage to Michael Jackson’s legendary live performances and the magic of his 45-year musical history. The show  features stunning choreography and Michael’s innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion in a show that fans will never forget.

Prinnie Stevens, who made it to the live shows on the first series of The Voice Australia in 2012, will headline the Australian run of hit musical, which has become one of the longest-running shows on London's West End and played in more than 28 countries.

While Stevens is best known for her star turn on the reality quest, she is no stranger to the theatre, having appeared on stage from the age of 17 and earning a Helpmann Award nomination for her performance in Oh, What a Night!.

The 34-year-old told AAA she could not wait to step into the shoes of her idol in the musical.

I am a singer/dancer and Michael Jackson was the ultimate singer/dancer. He influenced me so much as a child; his videos took me to another place."

Before the Australian tour kicks off at Crown Theatre from December 10-21, the cast will perform the show on the West End for a two-week run.

 Stevens said the thought of making her debut in the renowned theatre district was "insane".

Also thrilled for Stevens is her eight-year-old daughter Sania, who is becoming quite the Jackson fan in her own right. "She is beyond excited, more so about Michael Jackson than me though," the proud mother said with a laugh.
