Stephen Hill said the show

Stephen Hill said the show will be dedicated to Jackson because of his influence on music and pop culture. Jackson, 50, died Thursday at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his Los Angeles home. "This will be a show heavy on Michael Jackson's memory. I think what you're going to find is that acceptance speeches for awards will have nothing to do about the artists themselves, but about the influence that Michael Jackson had on them," Hill said Thursday in a phone interview from Los Angeles. "A show like this takes a good six months to put together, so when something happens three days before, it's going to be done fueled by emotions," he said. Hill said many of the celebrities who will appear on the show — including Beyonce, Wyclef Jean, Maxwell and Ne-Yo — contacted BET to see how they could help prepare a tribute. "Within minutes after its happening, we had calls from different artists — all asking what can they do" and how could they pay tribute to Jackson, he said.

Yes Harlem was crazy I

Yes Harlem was crazy I heard Reports are coming in about a drug overdose..I hope not: Members of Michael Jackson's family told us the singer was given a "heavy dose of morphine" prior to his death, and family members were alarmed. We're told Joe Jackson recently wanted to put Michael in a rehab facility in Palmdale, California for what he considered an "addiction" to morphine and prescription drugs. Family members say they felt he was unable to perform for his upcoming concerts because of his drug use. Members of the upcoming tour tell TMZ Jackson was generally lethargic and very late for rehearsals. There are reports Jackson OD'd yesterday on Demerol, a drug similar to morphine.

I would be great if they did a throw back version of a mix of Bad, Thriller and PYT!

paige loren: Michael

paige loren: Michael Jackson was a legend and he influenced so many people .. Especially my idol .. Chris Brown .. And I believe the execs over at BETwould be FOOLS if they don’t get that boy to perform for a tribute at the 09 BET AWARDS .. Because CAN’T NOONE and I MEAN NOONE ! .. Can channel the energy of Michael and hold out his legacy like CHRIS BROWN !.. Actually, him, Usher, and even Ginuwine should dust off their shoes...maybe even Diddy should tap into his dancing roots! That would be good

I thought that I was done

I thought that I was done crying yesterday but apparently not.I can only imagine how his family and friends are feeling if I'm like this. I never knew how much of an influence MIichael Jackson had on me until now. Music is so powerful. It is honestly a blessing. My heart goes out to his family, friends and fans.

All I can say is...he is at

All I can say is...he is at peace!! He doesn't have to worry about the pain, the drama and scrutiny from media and other individuals...it's a great thing for him! I am so happy he can be at peace...from a King on Earth to an angel watching over those he loves. Never ever will there be another and he will be missed..missed by millions/billions...we are thankful for the wonderful music he left with us though.

This is so devastating.

This is so devastating. Michael Jackson changed music for me. I remember being a little girl dancing to ALL his videos and singing all his songs. Oh, and the album "BAD" was my joint! MJ will always be missed. He truly is an icon. What other entertainer can you say TRULY transcended all races and influenced all genres of music? No one. RIP MJ...

I never really post but this

I never really post but this is an exception because I cannot believe how saddened I am upon learning and now knowing that Michael Jackson passed. I am 31 and I remember as a child having my little red jacket dancing around and singing to all of his songs. I remember before MTV debuted his videos they were on regular tv and everything would stop for one of his premiers. Through all of his adversity he came through. A man who never was allowed to be a child so he gravitated towards the innocence of children..something he never got to experience. I remember literally praying for him during his last trial and watching as fans let out doves outside of the courthouse upon hearing of his acquittal. To say he was a groundbreaker and a pioneer is almost an understatement. Evrey move that usher, JT, Ginuwine..and so many artists make are just renditions of what he originated. HE was and always will be the King of POP and I pray for his family and his children. May they be upheld by God's strength in this very difficult time. It just shows you that every breath we take is a gift and none is to be taken for granted.

I am so sad by this! I loved

I am so sad by this! I loved Mike every since I was a lil girl. I had the doll, even though I was scared of the Thriller video I made my older sis watch it with everytime b/c I loved it so much. He will be missed there will never be another artist like him!

No one can ever take away

No one can ever take away what Michael Jackson meant to the world. He had a voice at times as soft as an angel, and other times his voice was so powerful and overwhelming. Since I can't pick one favorite song, one that comes to mind today is Human Nature and sooooo many of his love songs, Butterflies, She's out of My life, I can go on and on. Rest in peace King of Pop and God comfort his family.

Wow. I am still in shock and can't believe it! This is a true loss of a real TALENT,the controversy and strange behavior pale in comparison to this man's LEGENDARY status. I hope he is at peace because his life was said to be lonely and full of well known problems. RIP MIKE..all the truly taleneted ones pass away too soon!!
