So Michael Jackson has nothing to do with this tribute?

what do you mean - Like Is he going to pay tribute to himself :D
The tribute it for him not from him .. It is rumoured he will be there
but there is no confirmation yet .. It going to be great to see him finally
be honored by the Grammy's which is long over due. It will be a good
thing wheather he is there or not - But would be very nice for us fans
if he were so we could see him .. I believe he will be there ... but
im not going to whine if he isnt. He has a reason for everything he is
doing now ... and we are not privy to it - Michael knows what he is
doing and why ... :) He's had lot of practice with this.

Well, a fan e-mailed Ms. Bain to asked her if MJ was going to be at the Grammys. Her response was basically "discussions are ongoing". So, I believe MJ does know about it.

Maybe that is what MJ wanted. Think about it: we have no clue, for sure, if MJ is going to be there or going to perform. Maybe he wants us to guess.

All I know is that MJ is a genius. Everyone is talking about him, every media outlet is spreading the rumour. If he doesn't perform or even show up then he's even more of a genius. Because it shows he doesn't have to actually do anything to get loads of attention. He knows how to play the media better than anyone.

Not really and not always -- you saw what happened at the WMAs -- lots of hype and attention before the show, then it all ended up being very anti-climactic to say the least, and eventually MJ ended up getting a ton of bad publicity. So, you can't always "play the media" -- sometimes it backfires.

I am not trying to get on you, but the media were the ones that assumed that MJ was going to perform. MJ told Extra Tv that he was not performing in that award show. The media looked stupid and, imo, started to trash MJ because they believed their own lies. So, that whole situation had nothing to do with MJ.

By the time he denied the rumor it was too late -- it has already spread all over the place. And that's my point -- sometimes situations like this can backfire.

I'm sorry, but i'm not too excited about this "All Star Tribute". I don't wanna see Akon, Fergie and whoever else ruining classic songs.

my favourite part in his last message is when he says "there is much more to come from Michael Jackson". i read it like "i'm really proud of Thriller but this is the past and i'm looking into the future because the best is yet to come". I think it's really wise and in time to start with the Thriller. i adore the quote mello has in the signature and but the comeback to the public is really hard after such difficult times. so starting with Thriller is just great. and i will buy a copy for me and my friends. to show my support. cause i dont like Akon. his voice and matter are just not my cup of tea. but it doesnt matter.
so if Michael chooses not to appear at Grammy it would be ok. From one side i like when they show respect and adoration to him but from the other side the word "legend" has something with the past and someone who's really old. Michael isnt.
so i'm happy to see him collecting awards for Thriller but i would be really really happy to see him collecting awards for a new album. this would really matter. and that's why i'm just sitting and waiting for Grammy. if he appears - fine. if not and they want to give him a special achievement award - fine - he will probably send a message. i'm ready to wait for a new album till forever, cause i'm so happy that he's working again and lives his life.

Well, you could look at the bright side. They aren't going to technically be singing the songs, but instead doing some remixes or somethin'. :lol:

This ain't that bad. We get "For All Time" (which sounds like a totally different song remastered) and if you buy the Japanese version you get that AND "Got The Hots" which IS hot, WAY hot, if you've heard the clip.
