by at . Comments

At the biggest music awards ceremony of the year, the biggest artist of this generation was honored like never before.

First, Celine Dion, Usher, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, and Smokey Robinson performed Jackson's "Earth Song" together, while a 3D version of the video from This Is It played in the background.

From there, Jackson's two eldest children closed the show, as Prince Michael and Paris accepted the Grammys' Lifetime Achievement on their father's behalf. Said Prince, pictured below with his siblings and Lionel Richie:

"[We] like to thank the fans, our father loved you so much. Our father was always concerned about the planet... We will continue to spread his message."

It was so nice to see Paris and Prince Michael looking so well and so grown up!! I love the support the Jackson family has for each other. The cousins standing in support in the background was touching to see.

Michael Jackson singlehandedly raised some well adjusted amazing beautiful children. Their grandparents are taking good care of them. I was glad to see the son acknowledge that his grandpa loves them.

Man-how could Swift win a country female w/vocals over Carrie Underwood??? Swift's song was flat and off key--and she killed Stevie Nicks song with her horrible vocals. I have heard a few of the commontators talking about how bad she was. She released her album then re-released it 2 more times and it is not fair to the other artists that released their album only once---definately not on equal ground here. How much longer can Swift sing about fairy tales in her awful voice--she is so overrated and overexposed. PLEASE-JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL and let everyone finally see that she can not sing live at all and that her voice is enhanced in the studio to sell records.

Lets see GAGA writes great songs she can sing and her album was great. Lets see Taylor cant sing she writes like a 10 yr old and her album is elementary garbage. Well now I see why Taylor won so much talent in all those curls.
