Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Guitar Prodigy To Join Alice Cooper's Band

The guitar prodigy Michael Jackson signed for his ill-fated This Is It tour dates has joined Alice Cooper's band.
Orianthi, 26, will replace Damon Johnson for the remainder of the classic rocker's No More Mr. Nice Guy world tour.
The young guitarist wowed Cooper when she accompanied him during his live performance of School's Out on the 2010 season finale of American Idol.
Alice says, "It's very difficult to find someone to match the talents of Damon Johnson, but not only did we find someone who is more than up to the challenge... she also looks Way better."
And she says, "I'm super-excited to go on tour with Alice. It's a huge honour to be able to get on stage and jam with an icon."
Orianthi will make her debut as a member of Cooper's band when they perform on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on 9 September (11).
