Los Angeles (CNN) - When Michael Jackson died unexpectedly two years ago, his fans worldwide erupted in a torrent of grief, anguish and - in tribute to the pop icon - song and dance.
On Monday, there were hugs, tears and shrieks of joy among his fans packed outside a Southern California courtroom after a jury found Jackson's physician, Conrad Murray, guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death.
"Oh my God, guilty!" one woman yelled out, seconds after the verdict was announced.
Others appeared to almost break out in song; some seemed to start dancing; and a chant soon rose up of "Justice, justice, justice."
