Jackson Caused Awards Chaos

MICHAEL JACKSON threw the World Music Awards into disarray last night by pulling out of a planned duet of his hit THRILLER with R+B star CHRIS BROWN. Fans expected the star to recreate the 1982 hit, performing live in London for the first time in nine years. But Jackson failed to attend a rehearsal and told journalists when he arrived at the Earls Court venue that reports he would sing were "a misunderstanding". An un-named event organiser tells British newspaper The Sun, "No one knew if they'd perform at all. They were terrified it would be a total disaster." Brown was left to sing Thriller alone. Jackson appeased angry fans when he stepped onstage for a performance of WE ARE THE WORLD - but left most of the singing to a backing gospel choir, managing just a few lines.

Good for Michael. He did the right thing.besides, who says that thriller could be performed by Jackson the way he wanted it? Maybe he wanted it in a way it would have been way too expensive for the whole project. Don’t forget we are talking about thriller. That’s not just," put on a mask and start dancing!!!!" and giving the chance to Chris brown to do such a performance means he thinks Chris is a very talented artist. Otherwise he would not have left someone incompetent perform his song in the wma's!!!Chris brown is a very talented and very honoured man who did briliantly.its an honour for him that mj picked him and it's an honour for him that he performed thriller in an award ceremony such as the wma’s...what does the "left him all alone"mean?? Chris brown is an artist and not a baby..!!!Do you know how many times you have to be all alone in order to make a music career such as Jackson’s..??How many artists are all alone on stage, every day trying to give their soul and their best to their performance and to their fans.???!!!!God only knows how many artists pray to God for such a chance!!!

WHAT A LOSER! This man/woman has no shame, everything he touches ends up causing grief to others. Can he EVER just fulfill an obligation, keep his agreements? .
