Would You Be Interested in Seeing JT Stage Michael Jackson Tribute Shows?

Justin Timberlake was in the stands at Wimbledon on Saturday as he continues enjoying his time overseas. He's mingling with many famous Brits, from Elton John's pals last week to some male bonding with new friend Prince Harry at a recent music festival. JT doesn't appear to be looking to return stateside anytime soon, as he's said to be considering staging tribute shows to honor Michael Jackson in London on some of the dates Michael was scheduled to perform. Justin was obviously influenced by Michael, but those are some big shoes to fill. So, tell us — would you be interested in seeing JT's tribute shows?

can't say that i'm really all that interested in seeing him in a tribute - but i guess if he's part of a whole group of musicians, then it would be something to consider.

no no no partly because of the janet fiasco

well, it's an interesting concept...especially since JT is a fairly good MJ impersonator

He did concerts in 2001, his new album wasn't as great as the others but it didn't ruin his legacy, if anything it celebrated it. I don't think these concerts would have been any different.

i think if a number of performers got together and did 50 dates performing a tribute act this would be an amazing way to celebrate his life and also to give the ticket holders something for their money. though people will have travelled from everywhere around the world for this concert, and i'm not so sure just justin would meet such demand. i agree with the first post- MJ would have been a shadow of his former self on tour. and though it's the worst way possible, him not going ahead with these 50 dates may have in a way protected his legacy as he was meant to be remembered.

Lol Kiki tee! I never said that his new albums were as good as his first but who gives a Sh*t? He shouldn't be treated any differently just because he got older. Justin has no where near the talent mchael had, I would really hate to see Justin do this, If michael can't no one should.

NOT after the way he threw Janet under the bus after the Superbowl. It would truly be truly hypocritical of him.

I agree with those that say no because of the way he treated Janet. He really made her take all the blame for the Superbowl fiasco when he was the one that caused it. I'm pretty sure Michael wouldn't want a tribute to him done by a guy that embarrassed his sister like that.

No Way! Are you serious?! I like Justin and all, but come on, really?

i'd be interested, i think he could pull it off. but he'd have to watch himself, he'd have a lot of people saying he was trying to cash in, being a sell out, etc...and the tribute would have to be complete MJ, nothing 'justified' about it

Nope. Nope. Nope. Not Timberlake. I'd like to see Chris Brown, because he's the only young guy who could do it justice.

mel92, really? Seriously, you think he was still making music of the caliber of Off the Wall and Thriller? I'm aware that he was still making music, but nothing he made from the mid nineties onwards even came CLOSE to the magic of the music he produced the peak of his talents. His voice was gone, he could barely walk, let alone dance... ergo, yes, he died a shadow of his former self. I'm not saying that makes me happy, but it is a fact nonetheless. A tribute concert is inevitable, and I agree with OChottie that at this stage JT "saying" he wants to do this is speculation. But I certainly would enjoy seeing all of his best songs performed and interpreted by other artists, they're amazing songs!
