Okay really? I have to agree with most of the comments already posted. MC please stay home. Why not get singers who actually knew MJ, oh say for instance Smokey Robinson who can sing "Never Can Say Goodbye" or how about Cheryl Crow she toured with him and sang on stage with him. Or even his highly talented sister Janet, she can sing MJ's "Gone Too Soon". Or even the brothers, I'm sure MJ would love that and so would we.

This is just so sad. Plagued in life with so much joy and sadness at the same time, in death free from all. Your music will live on in us Michael, just like you wanted. God Bless you.

WTF do you have the brain cells and thought processes of an ameba? It's a memorial service celebrating MJ's life and music. And, of course musical stars like Mariah will be there signing MJ's music in his honor and absence. It is as it has always been in previous memorials….other stars coming forward to honor the deceased.

well, there wont be a dry eye in the house, mainly from those of us who are mourning our lost youth..were did it all go.. one minute we were there with this wonderful little boy with the big voice, the cute black kid with the cheeky grin, the handsome teenager rocking out to first solo album , then thriller came along and just it was crazy.. he was suddenly a rock god...listening to pyt right now and realising that we just will never see that quality of musical performer ever again.. its all about the music for me now, cant talk ill of the dead, its over. at least a new generation are being exposed to the best pop in the world,, the JACKSON FIVE, WERE THE BEST, MICHEAL AS A KID WAS THE BEST, ANYTHING BEFORE 1985, NOW THAT WAS MUSIC..

i can't believe people still like to attack an artist when it is a memorial event. Hi guys this is not supposed to be a performance. Show some respects

I hope this is a dignified tribute to Michael and not a three-ring-circus. Any idea where Michael will be buried?

By the way, number 23, that is the funniest thing I have read in all the posts. Can't stop laughing at your retort.

Bless you, Michael!

6. I can't stand Mariah Carey, for gods sake why are they letting her do this.

Because that's their last chance to try to ressucitate him. He probably will run away from Stamples after she begin to sing. It could be worst, it could be the Jackson 4 singing.
