Apparently, not so fast. TMZ is reporting Katherine has said no way to the kids being on the show. Good for her. Knowing Michael's brothers, especially Jermaine who often strikes me as Joe 2.0, they'd love the kids on the show to boost ratings/their careers, but I really didn't think Katherine would be ok with that knowing how her son did everything to protect her grandkids' privacy.

Jermaine stayed with Motown in the mid 70s when Joe took the other 4 and left because he was married to Barry Gordy's daughter at the time. He's just always had this really sleazy vibe to me like Joe. If kissing Michael's ass is what will make money he'll do that, if trashing him will make money he'll do that. Out of all the brothers, he's always seemed like the most jealous of Michael's success. I've never bought his "I worship the ground Michael walks on" act. It's always seemed very fake and calculated, especially now.

Has anyone seen This Is It yet? I saw it today and I thought it was good. It really gave a glimpse of how much of a perfectionist he was when he was performing. Made me regret even more that I never got to see him live.

I think I'm just going to wait for the DVD. I have a feeling I'll be crying my eyes out, and I'd rather not do that in a theater. I've seen a lot of clips, and he was brilliant even in rehearsal.

^That's adorable. I can just imagine being one of the dancers or musicians or anyone working on this tour who's idolized MJ and then had the opportunity to work with him. Not only was he a musical genius, he was simply a genuinely kind, good person. I never thought I could miss someone I didn't even know so much.

I saw it last Thursday in early afternoon (best time to go see it during the week because the theater was practically empty) and was blown away at what the show could have been if it happened. MJ was the performer at his best. I also never got to see him live and feel bummed about it to this day.

I saw it this past weekend, too. Wow, that was going to be an epic show. It was really something, and I found it to be inspirational.

The reality of his death did not hit me until, during one practice, I noticed tape around his fingers. I wonder if they were for medical reasons? I know docs/nurses tend to prick fingers on the sides of the tip, not the very tip, because of the nerves. The bandages definitely didn't cover the very tips of the fingers. He was also very skinny, and looked fragile to me. I couldn't fathom doing 50 shows at his condition.

Poor guy. I too, wish I could've seen him live. It was really going to be an incredible show.

yeah, i also noticed how skinny he looked. i'm not sure he would've been able to do 50 shows either. it's amazing to think how awesome the footage was given this was all rehearsal stuff. he was holding himself back with his dancing and singing and he was still amazing. strangely enough, one of the songs i got the biggest kick out of hearing was shake your body (down to the ground). and of course thriller was amazing. what a show this would've been.

That's so amazing to hear. I'm glad you liked it! One thing though, if you look back at old performances you'll see Michael often wore tape around his fingers when he was performing. His explanation was that when he threw his hands or arms out at certain points, he wanted the audience to be drawn to them and the tape would ensure that they were looking at them. It was the same reason he wore white socks and those shorter black pants, so peoples' eyes would be drawn to his feet. Some have also speculated that he wore the tape on his fingers because of nail discoloration due to his lupus, but he never confirmed that, so who knows.
