Thousands Sign On To Break Thriller Record On Jackson's Birthday

Thousands of MICHAEL JACKSON fans will gather in Mexico City on the star's 51st birthday for a record-breaking dance-off to the King of Pop's hit THRILLER.
As Jackson family members say their final farewells to the entertainer at Glendale's Forest Lawn Memorial Park in California on 29 August (09), over 10,000 people have signed on to celebrate the pop star's life and break the record for most people to dance to the track simultaneously in one place.
The group will be led by a Jackson impersonator, according to organiser Carlos Contreras.
The record is currently held by a group of 242 students at Virginia's College of William & Mary, who performed the routine in May (09).
