Subscribe to Dancing With The Stars

The performers on U.S. reality show Dancing With The Stars paid tribute to the late Michael Jackson on Tuesday (20Oct09), thrilling fans with a number of King of Pop-themed routines.
The professional dancers on the series showed off their moves to three Jackson songs to honour the singer's memory and his influence on dance culture.
The tribute was introduced by the superstar's sister La Toya, who watched from the audience with her mother Katherine and brother Jermaine, as dancers, wearing iconic Jackson costumes with single white gloves and red leather jackets, kicked the routine off with Jackson 5 hit I Want You Back.
La Toya told the crowd, "Michael liked all kinds of choreography. He liked Dancing With the Stars. He was a fan of the show."
The dancers went on to perform to Man in the Mirror and Thriller, mixing ballroom style with classic Jackson moves.

I was very dissapointed with this tribute. They may be professionals but their moves in no way were a tribute to Michael. They seemed stiff and not smooth and flowing. I thank them for trying.
