3-D came to the Grammys in tribute to Michael Jackson. Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Carrie Underwood and Smokey Robinson collaborated on a version of 'The Earth Song,' from Jackson's 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I.' The performers each emerged from behind the stage, as viewers at home saw the images in 3-D, juxtaposed over images of horses, hummingbirds and children laying in grassy fields.
Jackson's vocals could be heard over the loud speaker, with the singers providing background vocals, occasionally making it hard to discern what was prerecorded and what was live. The performance has been one of the most anticipated of the night, as this is the first Grammy Awards since Jackson's death last summer.
After the performance, Jackson was presented the Lifetime Achievement award by Lionel Richie with Jackson's kids, Prince and Paris, onstage to accept the award. "We are proud to be here to accept this award on behalf of our father, Michael Jackson," said Prince. "Through all his songs, his message was simple: love."
