Justin Bieber supported his idol, Michael Jackson, at his Hand & Footprint Ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood Jan. 26 and HollywoodLife.com was there to catch the magical moment!

Justin Bieber has credited much of his love of music and dancing to the late Michael Jackson, so he wanted to come out and honor the memory of his idol at Michael’s Hand & Footprint Ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, alongside the Jackson children.

Paris Jackson introduced Justin this morning to the packed crowd, saying, “My father would have been proud to mentor this person — Justin Bieber — and I am a big fan of his.”

Justin, 17, looked adorable when he came on stage, telling the audience, “I don’t usually get nervous, but I’m kind of a little right now. Michael meant so much to me. I know he meant a lot to you guys as well. He was more than entertainer. He was an inspiration. He was kind, gentle and very charitable. People are going to remember him for his dancing and singing, but people have to remember him for being the man he was. Everything I do, [I look at Michael Jackson].”

He added, “I used to look in the mirror and sing ‘Rockin’ Robin’ to myself. When I was really little. I want to sing a little of that for you guys.”

The world famous pop star then sang an acoustic version of his old favorite and brought the house down. “Thank you so much. Have a blessed day. Michael, I love you!” he said, filled with emotion.

At the end of the ceremony, Justin posed next to Paris, 13, and Katherine Jackson in front of Michael’s hand and footprints. It was obvious Justin and Paris have a great friendship, as they were chatting and laughing after the ceremony.

Check back soon for a video of Justin’s beautiful performance. Isn’t he sweet to always pay back to those who inspire him?

Only reason he wanted to attend was to be close to the man who for death, prevented him from being molested before he turned 18 and became a man. He’s still fresh meat and me thinks he wants to be a moler.

That is mean and hateful! Do you talk to your mom like that? And what did he do right now? Only pay his respects to MJ and you hate him just for that? Justin is famous and at the top. Get over it. Cuz the more haters Justin gets, the stronger his fan-base is.

The things people say about Justin honestly make me want to cry, My brother killed himself when he was 17, and it disgusts me to see people saying that to an incredibly sweet and charitable young man. . He’s so sweet and looked up to Michael Jackson and the career that he had and aspires to be like him in that aspect. As for MJ’s personal life, the ONLY people who will know whether he did what he did or not are the children involved and him. . So whether u or I, as parents, immediately want to believe it, there’s also a chance that it didn’t happen. We’re not god, so we won’t know, but as for his singing career, some are fans, some aren’t but it doesn’t change the success level he had and as for Justin, it’s been 5 years, so of course he hasn’t sold as many albums or whatever as MJ but he was around for DECADES, geez, people need to give Justin time to catch up and he is off to a FANTASTIC start. He’s accomplished things at his age that no other artist did! He has a beautiful voice, he’s extremely talented. And I really don’t believe he’s goin anywhere anytime soon, I feel like he is here to stay.

I kinda lost my train of thought, but I was agreeing with you. I think it’s disgusting what that person said and you’re right, he has an incredible fan base and the more they “hate” his videos, the more they’ll become the most viewed videos on youtube :)

Ellie, that is the absolute most hateful comment ever. Remember everything he did for our world, how he changed it. He developed pop-culture into what it is today. How could you even say that? Thats also someones son, brother, and father you are talking about. You respect the dead, and Michael has earned the world’s respect even before that.

I’m with ellie why they are celebrating a guy who rape a child kill him self using drugs? there are performers who are alive and done more than him. well i guess hollywood and the entertainment world celebrate rapist,drug addicts and killers oh and child molesters don’t forget child molesters.
