Michael Jackson's Children Honor Him at Handprint Ceremony

Prince, Paris and Blanket gathered outside Grauman's Chinese Theater to memorialize the King of Pop

Michael Jackson's children are keeping the late pop idol's spirit alive. The three Jackson kids: Prince, 14, Paris 13, and Blanket, 9, attended a foot and handprint ceremony memorializing their father on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles.

The ceremony outside Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater featured the kids and some of the Jackson family and friends. In addition to adding their own handprints in the cement, the kids made an imprint with Jackson's famous sequined glove and a pair of his black dancing shoes.

"This, right here, is his lifetime achievement award," said Prince, 14. "This is what he strived to get, and this is what we are giving him now."

Jackson's children were joined by their grandmother Katherine, uncles Tito and Jackie, and their father's industry friends Smokey Robinson and Quincy Jones at the special commemoration. Also on hand to memorialize the King of Pop: Justin Bieber.

The 17-year-old pop singer told the crowd how much Jackson impacted him personally.

"He meant so much to me," said Bieber. "He was more than entertainer; he was an inspiration."
