Suspect ending, otherwise great tribute
23 July 2009 | by (Scotland, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning watching Michael Jackson's memorial. It was very hard to look away from it despite my tiredness. There were many worthy performances. My favourites included Stevie Wonder's performance, John Mayer's version of 'Human Nature' (a favourite) and 'Smile' by Jermaine Jackson.

You could really feel what everyone was going through on-stage, off-stage and around the world.

Marlon Jackson's emotional speech at the end was beautiful. While not a religious person, it was clear how genuine he was being. That was contrasted by Paris' (MJ's daughter) speech. She seemed to be forced into saying those words. I feel for her, but it seemed so fake. This tarnished an otherwise great memorial. RIP Michael.
