Jermaine Commands Michael Jackson Army

10/4/2010 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jermaine Jackson squeezed into one of his old Jackson 5 costumes to perform a tribute to Michael in Vegas this weekend -- but the whole thing could ignite some serious family drama.

Jermaine Jackson
While cameras rolled, Jermaine performed a series of Michael Jackson's classics to a packed house at the concert hall at the Planet Hollywood Resort.

Here's the rub -- Jermaine is legally allowed to cover the MJ songs in concert, but if he uses the recorded footage to create and then sell a DVD, album or TV special -- he would need to go through the Michael Jackson Estate to secure permission.

So far, it's unclear if Jermaine did get the green light -- but if not, the MJ Estate could bring legal action against Jermaine to protect its most valuable asset ... Michael's music.

FYI ... Michael's kids -- Prince, Paris and Blanket -- were all at the show.

think about it this guy can't afford a ticket anywhere let alone to buy new outfits, but if michael's kids go anywhere with him everything is paid for. Michael's brothers will be living off of them for the rest of their lives.

We all remember your song "WORD TO BAD".... and your BAD BOOK about MJ they never published.

And we remember this: "LIGHT UP YOU FACE WITH SADNESS, HIDE EVERY TRACE OF GLADNESS"....

Michael always carried controversy and was never cool with the rock crowd. But everybody loves Jermaine (and Tito too). I'm glad to see Jermaine make a living for his kids. Team Jermaine.
That concert footage was more to my tastes than Michaels own versions.

Detestable and hypocrite. Instead of paying the maintenance for his sons, Jermaine wastes his time trying to be like Michael Jackson. Jermaine, you're NOT Michael Jackson and NEVER you will be (just like no one other!!!). It's time that you realize it!!!!

Hell he sounded terrible singing his own songs. Come on Jermaine, Michael is gone, he cannot be replaced. Find your own way again.
Love you Michael

Your comment is funny. Anyways, he never said the recorded footage would be turned into a DVD or a TV special. Yes, MJ rocks. On another note, MJ3 seemed to be having fun. Good for them.

TMZ, the kids are named
Michael Jackson Jr
Paris Jackson
Prince Jackson!
You even published their birth certificates last summer.

Why is Mike Jr called Prince, when that is his brother's name?
What is Mike Jr called @ school?
When Prince starts school surely he won't tell everyone to call hims Blanket!

Totally random but Prince is getting really tall like MJ not sure if he's his son or not but Klein is defintely not tall and I think Debbie is avg height. The estate should be in charge of MJ's image they do a much better job then the Jackson family sorry but they always seem to hurt his image and make it about their crazy drama.

People who went to the show were screwed they should ask their money back.
This was just another attemt of Jermanies "cry me a river" to collect his money for child support.
Well Jermanie you should stop making babies and stop giving creepy show, you re the most talentless Jackson member and each time you open your mouth singing I barf in my mouth.
No wonder the people coming out from the show look so disapointed incl. MJ kids.

Jermaine do you. You will ne ve r be MJJ. Make your own fame now.
Until then stay out of the news and perhaps people will respect you.

MJJ must be rolling about now.
