Michael Jackson’s 3D clip to
appear in Grammys
The Grammy Awards to be held on the
31st of January are to include a tribute in honour of the late Michael
Jackson (This Is It)
The clip was intended for Jackson’s
hit single “Earth Song” which was to signal his comeback in
London of July 2009. He died on June 25th. Co-executive producer, Ken
Ehrlich, said it will be the first time a 3D segment will be featured
at the awards show.
Ehrlich was with Jackson the night
before he died, where he first saw the clip which is referred to as
a ‘call to action about the destruction man is reaping on animals
and nature’. The incredible images of natural beauty are seen through
the eyes of a little girl who falls asleep, only to wake up to its destruction.
A recent documentary of the singer’s
life, included pieces of the clip, but it will be aired for the first
time in its entirety at the Grammys. The clip requires viewers to wear
3D glasses to experience its full effect.
Along with the tribute, the singer
will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award during the show
