Michael Jackson may have declined an appearance at last year’s Grammy Awards, but he’ll make it into this year’s program—in 3D, that is.

A star-studded production number has been planned for the Jan. 31 show that would bring back the late pop star, if not physically then at least in spirit, to the Grammy stage where he’s had stellar performances in the past—most notably a highly charged rendition of “Man In The Mirror” backed by a gospel choir in 1988.

Jackson had reportedly promised the show’s producers last year that he would make an appearance the following year.

 Hopes for a Jackson production number were dashed when the King of Pop suddenly died on June 25, 2009, just days away from flying to London to begin dress rehearsals for his would-be concert residency at the O2 Arena.

Grammys show producer Ken Elrich recalls meeting Jackson the night before he died to watch the “Earth Song” film clip that would have been used for the concerts. As it stands, the beautifully shot short film has become one of the two visual centerpieces that figured in the concert movie “This Is It” instead.

As a fitting honor to Jackson, the producers of the show rejected the notion of having other artists perform Jackson’s song. Instead, the 3D film of “Earth Song” with Jackson’s 3D image will be accompanied by performers such as Jackson friend and mentor Smokey Robinson and Jackson fan Usher; as well as Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and Celine Dion, as reported.

This number could potentially be one of the most memorable to be put together by the Grammy Awards producers since this is the first time an awards show would feature 3D.

Reportedly, free 3D glasses will be distributed at Target stores from Jan. 26 until the day of the Grammys broadcast. Regular TV viewers, however, can watch the show “normally” without the glasses with slight softness on some of the shots.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office determined Jackson’s death in June to be due to acute propofol intoxication. He was 50 years old.

Interesting that he had a meeting with the Grammys producer the day before his death when he wouldn't have theoretically been able to perform at the Grammys due to the London concerts...

What didn't he work on in June?  Busy month for sure...

It just made me thing of the song "2000 watts" when Michael says
"you feel I'm real"
"3D, high speed..."
and the background vocal saying "You may now aply your 3D glasses"...

This is awesome. I bet ANYTHING that the "3D Hologram MJ" will actually be MJ there in person.

Now read this - notice the way they put it "we won't see Michael lip singing" :shock:  But of course not.  Why would he lip sync in person :lol:

LOL!! oh my gosh! I still have my 3-D glasses from Avatar too. That was an awesome movie btw. Made me cry when the main character was at that tree and asked it to look into the memories of that woman Grace. To see what we have done to our mother earth. We've destroyed her. So sad. :cry: But I pray, and I'm willing to stand up and help turn this thing around.

So excited to see the Earth Song clip!! <3

I went to Target today and asked if they had the 3D glasses for the Grammys. They had them in a box
and they gave me 8 pair. I don't know if they were supposed to hand them out now, but they seemed like they didn't mind. I was disappointed because they are the ones that have one cyan and one red lens. They are not like the ones in the movies. They have "This Is It" printed on them. I hope they work well with the tribute.

I've read this sentence a few times, and maybe it is the language barrier, but what do they mean with IF or THEN AT LEAST?  IF MJ is really gone (like they try to make us believe), do they have any other choice than to bring him in spirit?  I know I may be reading too much into it, and want to see it as a pro hoax sentence, but seriously doesn't it seem  a bit adorned ?  One of those two ( capitalized word or phrase) is unnecessary IMO.
