The Definitive Michael Jackson Tribute Roster

Posted by ThatsMyJamRadio on August 23, 2009

It seems as though there is a new tribute to honor Michael Jackson being announced on a daily basis. Albums, concerts, television specials ― it’s all becoming a big much and, given the quality of some of them, seem to cheapen his legacy rather than honor it.

Jackson clearly influenced artists in various spectrums of popular music. His memorial in July has thus far been the best tribute, but if another is to happen ― a definitive, end-all, be-all tribute that we hope would be televised ― here is who we think should perform, present and appear. Some have collaborated, others competed, some copied and others encouraged … but we would love to see this massive roster pay final tribute to the King of Pop.
