Michael Jackson plans a performance of his classic song "Thriller" at the World Music Awards next week, organizers said Wednesday Nov 8th, 2006.
Get ready for a "Thriller" performance from Michael Jackson. The once proclaimed King of Pop plans a performance of his classic song "Thriller" at the World Music Awards next week, during which he'll be awarded a Diamond Award, given to artists who sell more than 100 million albums.
Not without reason, but that performance is aimed to mark the 25th anniversary of the singer's album also dubbed "Thriller", from which the hit was taken. On that matter, a source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Jackson has definitely told organizers he will be performing. His dancers have already started rehearsals. He will close the show with 'Thriller'. It will be a complete recreation of the video."
The 2006 World Music Awards will take place next Wednesday November 15th at London's Earls Court. While Lindsay Lohan has been booked to host, Beyonce Knowles, Mary J. Blige, Katie Melua and Andrea Bocelli are all scheduled to perform.
