Christina Aguilera rocked the house and Jennifer Hudson no-showed, but the big story of the Michael Forever tribute concert was the appearance by his kids.

Michael Jackson's children Prince, 14, Paris, 13 and Blanket, 9, took the stage briefly in Cardiff, Wales, to introduce a live satellite performance by Beyonce.

"We're very happy to be here on this special night to honour our father," said Paris, dressed in an exact replica of the jacket MJ wore in his "Thriller" video.

Prince's outfit conjures up images of "Bad," while young Blanket went for one of his dad's more recent looks, with the long hair and the signature armband:

The legendary singer, perhaps the single most successful artist in modern music, died in 2009 aged 50 while rehearsing for a series of comeback concerts.

The Michael Forever tribute concert coincides with the involuntary manslaughter trial of the singer's doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, currently underway in L.A.

Michael's brothers Jermaine and Randy boycotted the tribute show, calling it ''ill-timed'' and 'inappropriate'' given the criminal proceedings taking place.

They want to keep Michael's memory alive, i see nothing wrong in what they are doing. I think Michael's kids love being in the spotlight (except for Blanket). This is their way of coping. I loved the way Paris introduced Beyonce, she is not shy at all! She is an aspiring actress, and i think she is beautiful. I wish the whole Jackson family love and success. Michael will forever be missed....
