Ll Cool J Has Big Ideas For Jackson Grammy Tribute

Grammy Nominations Concert host LL COOL J has given Recording Academy bosses plenty to think about as they plan a MICHAEL JACKSON tribute for music's big night at the end of January (10).
The rapper remembered the late King of Pop during the nominations show in Los Angeles on Wednesday (02Dec09) and now he has suggested organisers of the Grammy Awards call on Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Usher and other big names inspired by Jackson to perform to the pop star's Billie Jean.
LL Cool J says, "That's what I think would be hot."
And Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow admits he's taking all suggestions about a Jackson tribute seriously: "Michael Jackson is important to us. Michael is iconic."

Cheers to LL Cool J! I thought he did a good job on the Grammy nomination program in regards to MJ & the tribute to him. Keep it up LL! The Grammy Awards program should include a lengthy tribute to MJ. There will never be another MJ, we need to keep his legacy alive forever. He deserves all the tributes we can give him, considering the way he was unfairly treated all his life by the media. Thanks LL.
