Grammy Update: Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse & More!

The Grammys are this weekend! Yay!

According to the NY Daily News, Michael Jackson will be in attendance to celebrate Thriller's 25th anniversary -- but he won't be performing. The paper says that the producers of the awards show wanted MJ to dance and sing, along with other big names who have joined Michael on some of his biggest hits, but the Glove One declined.

"Michael can't go along with that," says a source. "He needs more time to rehearse new versions of the songs. And everything requires new choreography."

The medley would have been awesome, with huge names performing old classics like, doing "The Girl Is Mine", Fergie singing on "Beat It", and possibly Kanye West helping out on "Billie Jean" and Akon on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'".

Now, they are saying that Michael is just going to appear on stage, to show the world what a freak show he looks like now.  

What a bummer.

In other Grammy news, it seems that Amy Winehouse is trying to making it to the show, as she stepped out of rehab yesterday, in attempt to get her Visa.

"Amy was accompanied by a nurse as the appointment was under supervision," said her rep She has not left rehab and remains under the care of the clinic." 

He also added that there has been "no decision" made on whether or not Amy will actually be in attendance at Sunday's show.
