The Jackson family were treated to front row seats as the X Factor celebrated the music of Michael Jackson with a "Thriller" themed night, on Wednesday.
Prince, Paris and Blanket were joined by grandma Katherine and uncles Jackie, Tito and Marlon, as they watched the seven remaining contestants pay tribute to the King of Pop by belting out a few of his mega hits.
Coincidentally, tonight also happens to be the 29th anniversary of "Thriller," which includes hit singles “Thriller,” “Billie Jean,” “The Girl Is Mine,” and “Beat It.” The record is still the best-selling album of all time, with over a 100 million copies sold worldwide since its 1982 release.
In other Jackson news, a verdict was finally reached this week in the manslaughter trial against Dr. Conrad Murray, who will serve the maximum 4-year sentence for inadvertently killing the singer.
Katherine told KTLA after the verdict was announced: "Four years is not enough for someone's life. It won't bring him back but at least he got the maximum. I thought the judge was very, very fair and I thank him."
