Grammys to Honor Michael Jackson with All-Star Tribute, 3-D Mini-Movie

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson will be honored with a celebration fit for a king. The Grammys will stage a star-studded tribute to the late legend at this month’s show.

Usher, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson, and Carrie Underwood will come together, along with the voice of Michael Jackson, in a performance for the King of Pop at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. The show will also feature a never-before-seen 3-D mini-movie for “Earth Song” that was created for Jackson’s “This Is It” concerts.

“It was one of the most important portions of the concert tour to Michael and when Michael saw the film for the first time at his last rehearsal, there were tears in his eyes,” says Ken Ehrlich, Grammy co-executive producer and longtime Jackson associate.

In order to enjoy the 3-D TV experience at home, Target stores nationwide will offer free 3-D glasses from January 24-31. Those in the audience at Staples Center will also be able to share in the 3-D viewing with their own glasses.

Previously announced performers for the 52nd Grammy Awards include Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Maxwell, Pink, and Taylor Swift.

Music’s biggest night will broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, January 31, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

    SO excited for this! This might just top the VMA tribute.. I don’t know if anything will be as powerful as watching Janet dance with Michael like that though.. we’ll see.
    Thanks for the info, Rap-Up. People have been wondering what they were going to do..

    That’s like all the same people that performed at his memorial service, except for Celine Dion. I would’ve liked to see Ciara, Chris Brown and Omarion do a dance tribute. I’d rather see Christina Aguilera take Celine’s spot. Christina shut the game down with her James Brown Grammy Tribute of “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” and Grammy Nominations Tribute to Nina Simone with “I Loves You Porgy.”

    How about one of the Jacksons doing a honor. How about Jermaine the one with the big mouth and thinks he is all that. Be sure to wrap something around neck.

  13. Huh

    I strongly feel that the one person who can really bring the house down with a tribute perfromance is Chris Brown. I jus know that he’ll work harder than he’s ever to pay tribute to his favortie artist and the man who was his idol.

    Nothing will beat Janet’s tribute. Not only did she kill the performance but it was also emotional considering she’s his little sister and the closest sibling to him.
