At the Grammy Nominations Concert, the host, rapper LL Cool J paid tribute to Michael on Wednesday. He has now suggested that organisers should call on men like Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, Usher and others inspired by Michael to perform ‘Billie Jean’ in his memory. LL Cool J said; “That’s what I think would be hot.”
Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow admits he’s taking all suggestions about the Michael tribute seriously: “Michael Jackson is important to us. Michael is iconic,” he said.
