Justin Bieber Honors Michael Jackson at Hollywood Ceremony, Covers "Rockin Robin"

by at . Comments

A young, burgeoning music icon paid tribute to a late legend for the ages yesterday.

Justin Bieber came out for a special ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, where Michael Jackson's children helped immortalize their father via that locale's famous hand and footprint ceremony. And he was brought to the stage by a major fan.

"I want to introduce you all to a performer who also found stardom at a very young age, just like my dad," Paris Jackson told the crowd. "My father would have been proud to mentor to someone like him and would be very proud that he came to today's celebration. We are all very big fans of him, and his music. I know I am."

Bieber proceeded to send his best wishes to the family and then perform a cover of MJ's "Rockin Robin," as seen here:

"Michael meant so much to me," Justin said. "I know he meant a lot to you guys as well. He was more than entertainer. He was an inspiration. He was kind, gentle and very charitable. People are going to remember him for his dancing and singing, but people have to remember him for being the man he was.

“Thank you so much. Have a blessed day. Michael, I love you!”

Nikki, how the hell do you know anything that you stated about mj to be fact. Just by your observation, or was you close to him? The media you speak of is the same one that made him popular. If it wasn't for media we wouldn't be discussing this. You really are stupid!

I'm sorry but Michael Jackson should not be referred to as "Mj." "Mj" is Michael Jordan.. Get it straight

I do know what I'm talking about. 20 million to one family to keep him out of court for molestation charges. His cause of death was from an overdose of Propofol given to him by his doctor in which he was asking for. All from the media that caused him to be a success and failure to the public. He was a singer, dope head, pedifile, nut job that hacked his own face up because he didn't like his nose because he was picked on as a child. I liked his music when I was a child, was born before his fame and think he should be in the history books with the other idiots of the world like charles manson, hitler, oj, and others. I am no longer a fan because of the stupidity that developed in his life. The college football coach that just died is in the same shoes as mj. Covered up molestation of a fellow coach. Wrong is Wrong and you idiots that follow and ignore the sorrow and bs that michael put others through are the same. You sick people would sell your own kids for 20 mill right?

Define the word racist? The last comment i made was nothing hateful about Elvis. I just comment the truth and it was my own opinion. Just like u @archie comment on MJ being a child molestor. I love MJ just like u love Elvis, so were both even.
