The Recording Academy is staging a special 3-D tribute to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson at the 2010 Grammy Awards later this month.
The year’s broadcast will feature a never-before-seen clip MJ made for his hit “Earth Song,” The Academy said Tuesday. The clip would have been part of Jackson’s London comeback shows last year.
“It was one of the most important portions of the concert tour to Michael and when Michael saw the film for the first time at his last rehearsal, there were tears in his eyes,” Ken Ehrlich, Grammy co-executive producer and longtime Jackson associate, said in a release.
Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson, Carrie Underwood, and Usher will sing in a tribute to the star.
The 52nd Annual Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles Jan. 31 on CBS.
