Madonna’s MTV 2009 VMAs Michael Jackson Tribute

  • Pin it

What can I do? I can’t help myself, really! I’m not always easy on Madonna, but this time I have to bow to her Madgesty’s speech!

And she’s not even the reason why! Michael is! Michael Jackson was honored at the 2009 edition of MTV’s Video Music Awards. And what a beautiful celebration that made! Artists uniting in the name of the King, bringing his talent in the spotlight one more time, for one more tribute.

Madonna MTV VMA 2009

Not many embeddable versions qualify for this article; the available versions are far from good quality (like this one). I’m only including pictures of Madonna during her MTV 2009 VMAs speech and a link to actually watch it (in case you missed it or simply want to see it again). I only included MTV’s promo for the Michael Jackson Tribute at the 2009 VMAs. Beautiful. That’s how we should remember his music, his artistic contribution while he was still alive. (photos via)

I watched this twice plagued by a huge fever due to a flu, had to sit straight up because of the medication. So I came here.

Yes it was a lovely and touching speech and tribute to Michael Jackson. I also enjoyed Janet’s performance of their duet “Scream” (one of favourite tunes and one of my all time favourite music videos!). It was really nice to see!

Oh dear Adriana, I do hope that you are feeling right as rain and soon! : ) A big virtual hug to you!

P Diddy had very precisely described the genius of Michael Jackson: “He showed that you can actually see the beat. He made the music come to life. He made me believe in magic.”

I’ve tried to collect all notable tributes paid to Michael Jackson by peers: here.

Oh, Adriana, I hope you recover soon, bring your happy face back! :*

I loved that Scream duet! I loved the song too, back in the days, it’s still one of my faves (I did included that link, didn’t I? it was a lousy quality video, but still worth seeing)

Lovely ladies, I’ve miserable ill but happy face now because of your sweetness.
I’ve found out when MTV repeat (and they repeat it endlessly) the show. Tomorrow at daytime that is. Also at midnight but that’s not wise, not for the neighbours and certainly not for my health.
I want to see that show now. Also because of Kanye West’s craziness to disturb Taylor Swift! Good for Beyoncé how she solved it!! I want to see Janet doing her duet with her brother I loved the song too. A lot. I understood what they said back then.

First thing I read after I entered the internet was that Patrick Swayze has passed away. So sad, he fought so hard. I hope he’s at peace now. Well after all we are mortals aren’t we….
And didn’t we all love Dirty Dancing?
