Call him Jermaine Jacksun ... with a "U" ... because as of this afternoon, that's legally his name.

We've learned ... an L.A. County Superior Court judge approved the singer's petition for the name change, which the 58-year-old filed back in November. 

TMZ broke the story ... the man formerly known as "Jermaine Jackson" had said he wanted to make the change for "artistic reasons" ... whatever that means.

Jermaine was not present during the hearing ... because he's off in Europe performing with his brothers ... the Jacksons.

What does changing his last name have to do with him wanting money? I guess We're all money hungry people because that's all half the world cares about. I sware Michael Jackson fans are WORST then Justin Bieber fans!! So ****ing judgmental at least Justin Bieber fans don't Always talk trash about his family the way Michael Jackson Fans do.

My guess is Jermaine's Wonderlic score would be even lower than Vince Young's.

Seriously, who cares, dude.

They performed in Oslo this evening, and the reviews are really bad: "Michael Jackson would've moonwalked in his grave if he had seen his brothers singing and dancing skills. They aren't particularly good at singing, and they can't dance. The attempts to do coordinated dance moves were comical. The band (not the Jackson brothers) was good. The more we heard of the band, and the less we heard of The Jacksons, the better the outcome."
