Michael Jackson's final masterpiece, This Is It hit theaters at midnight last night, with a star-studded LA premiere just a few hours earlier to celebrate. MJ's brothers Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and Randy posed together to support the project while stars of stage and screen came together to honor the King of Pop. Will Smith doesn't do a ton of red carpets these days, but couldn't miss this one and NPH was dapper in black. Ashley Tisdale pulled her High School Musical costar Monique Coleman close while Adam Lambert and Katy Perry looked like two peas in a pod. Michael Jackson's last performance footage has done amazingly well in presales and he clearly has the love of all his celebrity fans and friends — including close pal Elizabeth Taylor — as it hits theaters for a special run.
Jennifer Lopez pouted for the camera after another weekend supporting the Dolphins in Miami. Paris Hilton went a little more risqué in her black ensemble while Tisdale paid homage to the man of the night with her vintage t-shirt. Paula Abdul was filled with emotion watching Michael up on the big screen. There will surely be a lot more reactions and praise as crowds flock to see MJ's famous moves in the peek at his preparations for his comeback concerts that never were able to be.
