despite everything in his private life, in his professional life micheal jackson commands huge respect within the enterainment industry..musically, there is no equal to him. and am not a rabid fan by any means i didnt cry when i heard he died , i was sad for his kids but to be honest, there is a limit to what the body can tolerate and it was so obviously this was a disaster waiting to happen,the abuse of prescriptive drugs is more common amongst rich hollywood types and money talks bs walks ..mariah carey is losing her touch, she came to the uk and performed shii on the stage at the x factor show..beyonce was fabulous!! i like the idea of jacksons musical collaborators doing tributes he has so many songs to choose from ... anyway, its going to be a fab show, and the fans can vent and cry and laugh.. and hopefully WE CAN HAVE CLOSURE AFTER THIS TMZ...its time to lay micheal to rest and MOVE ON... let his family come to terms with this and let the LEGAL BATTLES BEGIN...

For God's sake, don't you people have anything nice to say about anything? This is the family's choice. Give them and Michael the respect they deserve. It isn't your affair, it is theirs. Let the man rest in peace and quit the babbling.

Michael Jackson is dead...he's been dead for many days...he was news...he did his life's work...but it's over...over...over.

Every person has approximately 25,000 sunrises....use them as you will.

No man or woman no matter how strong or rich or poor has only so many sunrises. We run like ants on this Earth...cars racing, people racing, children racing, all with a "purpose" but eventually the purpose is gone and it's over. No baseball practice, no concert, no family gathering, no Chistmas, no birthday has meaning because IT IS OVER.

The decorations at 4th of July mean nothing, no Christmas tree has value, no designer outfit means anything, because IT IS OVER.

Appreciate the meaningful days, hours, moments and move on.

ALL the rest is nothing but BUSY WORK.

Will she be dressed like a slut? Tight mini skirt, with her fat thighs hanging out and her fake boobs over exposed. I'm sure she doing this for increased record sales also. I bet there will be a DVD/ and or CD that comes out of this so that she can gain more money. She loves the attention and is just using this chance to get her fat butt noticed.... Can you tell that I CAN'T stand her. I liked her when she was down to earth back in the 80"s....

6. I can't stand Mariah Carey, for gods sake why are they letting her do this. What an over inflated fat mess she is, waving herhands in the air, warbling - can't she sing properly. I'm glad I'm not going now, I can turn the tv over at home instead!

20. 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.

YOU REALLY COULD NOT BE SERIOUS ENOUGH TO THINK THAT ANY OF THE JACKSON'S SHOULD SING TOMORROW...THAT WOULDN'T EVEN BE APPROPRIATE EVEN IF THEY FELT UP TO IT!

Well this stands to reason. Mariah used to be white, but is now black.

Wheeled in wearing some sorta wild printed sack, huge shades, and millions of $$$ in gems, Elizabeth Taylor--the old cow--will deliver the eulogy. LMAO. Yeah, she's one of MJ's best friends, but have you heard her talk? She hurts my ears--she speaks sooo SLOW. Her over-the-top performance is going to take forever . . . The old "dame" Are all his other friends dead?
