Randy Jackson has lashed out at organizers of the Grammy awards for failing to invite his family to witness Sunday night's, January 31, 2010 tribute to his late brother Michael Jackson. The King of Pop, who passed away in June 2009, was honored with a spectacular 3-D performance featuring Smokey Robinson, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood and Usher at the prestigious music event.
His two eldest children, Paris and Prince Michael, came onstage to collect their father's Lifetime Achievement Award and received a standing ovation from the star-studded crowd. But Randy is fuming that the rest of the hitmaking clan were not asked to attend the ceremony by organizers.
In a series of posts on his personal Twitter page, he writes, "So proud, my brother being honored... (with) the Lifetime Achievement Award. My family would love to be there but truth is, we weren't invited. He adds, "Let me be clear, when I said 'My family' I meant my brothers, sisters & parents."
