    Won't be for obvious reasons. I do intend to watch it either on tv or streamed over the net.

    I never liked him, as an artist he's fine, Just he's a freak.

    I plan on watching it though to see if chaos ensues.

    Memorial seems to be delayed. Apaprently his casket is to be on display also. Personally I don't think that's very appropiate.

    it would be the greatest stunt of all times if he comes jumping out of of his coffin to start his I'm not dead tour 2009 but i don't think that will happen [​IMG]

    That would be crazy. He jumps out and dances on his gold casket...
    If that happened I'd hate him forever for spamming my TV the last week

    Epic! So full of emotion! That guy has so much love for him! Can't believe Paris spoke, that choked me! I just hope everyone who hated him will get off his case and just let the legend sleep peacefully! At least for every person that hates him out there, there's 1000's that love him.

    Just finished watching it. Was a very moving memorial emotionally. I felt Michael got the send off he deserved. Loved the two songs at the end.

    God that would be amazingly awesome and funny [​IMG]

    So my gf got up at 2am to watch this... Personally I wouldn't care to do that for anyone I never knew or cared about, just because he's famous.

    Yeah it was pretty good. Hearing Magic Johnson, Smokey Robinson, and Brook Shields tell their stories about Michael was cool. It was so emotional hearing Paris talk though. I'll admit it; I had to fight back the tears on that one.
