His memory and indelible mark on music and pop culture will last forever and now Michael Jackson's children have cemented his legacy ... in the literal sense.
With a hand and footprint ceremony, Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket Jackson, 9, left their mark - and Michael's - outside Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater.
Here's a photo of the kids paying tribute to their late father Thursday, at the event held in conjunction with the Cirque de Soleil MJ-themed Immortal show:
"This, right here, is his lifetime achievement award," said Prince Michael Jackson, 14. "This is what he strived to get, and this is what we are giving him now."
The Jackson kids made an imprint in the cement using Michael's famous sequin glove and a pair of his dancing shoes, and each added their own print as well.
Also there to celebrate the King of Pop's memory: mother, Katherine, brothers Tito and Jackie, Smokey Robinson, Quincy Jones and Justin Bieber, who said:
"He meant so much to me. More than entertainer; he was an inspiration."
We doubt he's alone in that sentiment.
