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."

Nov 30, 2011 04:45 PM


Jessica Simpson was snapped in New York City this afternoon, and even though she covered herself in an bulky sweater, we still caught a peek at her growing baby bump!

Last night Jess attended the Footwear News Achievement Awards and showed off her belly in a tight red dress, and she revealed that she likes to flaunt her new curves. "I like wearing things more fitted," she told Us Weekly. "You want to show off your bump! It's just so fun. You don't want to wear muumuus so you can moo around town."

So what about her radiant skin? Jess recently told People Magazine, "People always say that pregnant women have a glow. And I say it's because you're sweating to death. "I think they just tell pregnant women they're glowing to make them feel good about themselves, because everything makes them a little bit emotional." Ha!

Kourtney Kardashian and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick are finally ready to walk down the aisle, as a source close to the family tells Entertainment Tonight that a wedding for the couple is "imminent."

The ceremony will reportedly be very small and private -- the complete opposite of sister Kim's extravagant nuptials, and it may even take place at the Kardashian family home in Calabasas.

Lady Gaga Shows Her Little Monsters Some Love Before Grammy Noms Concert

Nov 30, 2011 04:05 PM


Lady Gaga got all glammed up for her Grammy nomination concert rehearsal at Nokia Theatre LA Live today, but she also took the time to greet hundreds of rabid fans outside of the venue. Yesterday Gaga tweeted, "I am so excited to OPEN and CLOSE the Grammy Nomination concert 2moro night! What a blast rehearsing with Jennifer and Kristian. Sugarland!" Nominations will be announced tonight, and Rihanna and Usher are also set to perform at the show. We can't remember last year's noms being so star-studded -- any chance these artists are hoping to get a little bit of extra credit with The Recording Academy?

After belting it out this afternoon, Gaga tweeted, "At some point today i'll be drunk watching finale of Victoria'sSecretFashionShow on repeat. Models in panties dancing to BORN THIS WAY #yes." Good to know!
