The children took to the stage dressed in outfits reflecting Michael Jackson’s career and were greeted by rapturous applause. Blanket looked stunned by the noise and the lights but the elder two looked at ease on the stage. Paris wore a Thriller jacket, Prince donned a leather jacket reminiscent from the Bad era of the eighties, while Blanket recaptured the Smooth Criminal outfit in a black jacket and tie, teamed with a red shirt and arm band to match. They introduced a performance by Beyonce, who appeared via videolink from the US to play the Jackson Five hit I Wanna Be Where You Are.

“She is always pushing the envelope with her boundless energy and talent. She carries the torch lit by our father and it gives me great pleasure to introduce this woman.”-Michael Jackson’s daughter said, while introducing Beyonce during the tribute concert.

Paris and Prince Michael joined in with the singing although Blanket again looked uneasy on stage, standing motionless with his hands in his pocket. The children joined family and the showbiz elite to celebrate Michael Jackson’s life with the tribute concert in Cardiff but not all of the singer’s sibling attended the show. Tito, Marlon, Jackie and La Toya all performed at the concert, while Jermaine, Randy and Janet were missing.

Michael Jackson’s tribute concert in Cardiff was hosted by Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx with Fearne Cotton. The king of pop died in June 2009, aged 50, as he was preparing for his epic comeback shows in London.
