Michael Jackson was finally laid to rest Thursday, September 3, more than two months after he passed away due to cardiac arrest. The burial, which was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif., was kicked off at around 8:30 P.M. PT, an hour-and-a-half late from its initial schedule.

Michael's parents, Joe and Katherine Jackson, as well as his siblings were all there for the event. The family was joined by Michael's three children; Prince Michael Jackson Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael Jackson II, in addition to numerous A-list celebs.

Brothers of the late singer were seen sporting black armbands and a sequined glove on one hand, People reports. They carried Michael's flower-covered casket out of the hearse and placed it before hundreds of mourners on a stage that was decorated with white lilies and white roses.

Prince Michael Jr., Paris, and Prince Michael II were reported placing a crown on their father's coffin to mark his place as the King of Pop. A prayer was then delivered by Pastor Lucius Smith. Gladys Knight sang a gospel and Clifton Davis performed the Jackson Five's song he wrote, "Never Can Say Goodbye".

Following the ceremony, Michael's casket was driven into Forest Lawn in a hearse shortly before 8:30 P.M. Arriving at the spot minutes later, Michael entered his final resting place at 9:43 P.M. After that, the Jacksons issued statement saying that they "once again thank all of Michael Jackson's fans around the world for their generous outpouring of support during this terribly difficult time. Their expressions of love for Michael and his music have sustained the Jackson Family."
