Tonight is shaping up to be, not just an impressive Tribute filled with honor and pride for the man, but moments that will rip our heartstrings right out of our chests.
Prince Michael and Paris Katherine will both attend tonight, escorted by their grandmother, Katherine, and, according to this CNN article, Prince Michael will be reading a prepared statement during the Tribute. Don't look for them to appear on the Red Carpet however.
Some reports claim that until Mr and Mrs Jackson complained to the Grammys committee last week, no one in the Jackson family had been asked to participate in this Tribute. If that is true, WOW! What a snub Grammys! Good for Joe and Katherine for raising the roof on this, and for Katherine's approval allowing Prince and Paris to appear not at the smaller Award ceremony, but the actual tribute. We know their Daddy would be so proud of them!
