The late King of Pop Michael Jackson will be honored with a 3-D tribute on music’s biggest night – the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 31.
The tribute will include never-before-seen footage from Michael Jackson’s mini movie “Earth Song”, which was originally set to be included in his This Is It tour before his tragic death on June 25 (09).
Oscar-award winner Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Smokey Robinson and Celine Dion will perform alongside the video. Hudson, Usher and Robinson also performed at Jackson’s Memorial service at Staples Center last July. (See: Michael Jackson Memorial – Part 3: My personal photos)
Grammy co-executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement, “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.”
For those interested in viewing the tribute in 3-D, you can pick up free 3-D glasses at any Target, from January 24 – 31.
The “Billie Jean” singer will also reportedly receive a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award for his tremendous contribution to the music industry.
