Michael Jackson the man wasn't invincible. But his legacy is now solid as a rock.
The late pop icon's children imprinted some of their father's most famous accessories—his sparkly glove and shiny black shoes—in the cement in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre today on Hollywood Boulevard.
Mom Katherine Jackson, Smokey Robinson, Chris Tucker and Justin Bieber were in attendance at the ceremony, which also featured a performance by the cast of Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.
"It's a very good celebration and I know if Michael was here he would agree, to see all the friends and loved ones and especially his fans here to celebrate this with him," Katherine Jackson told the assembled crowd.
"Just left the Michael Jackson ceremony...i dont get nervous usually but i was really nervous. to be with his family. he was the greatest!" Bieber tweeted afterward.
"Make it trend. all of us should give him the tribute he deserved. To THE KING OF POP. Michael thank you.FOREVER -"
