Vultures at the memorial service

Via Showbiz411, the best source of news during this entire saga.

The good news:Appearances by Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross. They are deserving by virtue of friendship and appropriate by level of artistry. And Jennifer Hudson, by virtue of tragedy.

The bad news: the race between Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for the funeral oration seems to have resulted in a draw. Both will be speaking. And Jermaine will close the service:

Sources say that Jermaine will represent the Jackson family, singing Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile.” If this comes off as planned and hoped, Jermaine will steal the spotlight from many superstars....

Were you thinking that the only thing worse would be to have Tito perform? Well, you would be wrong. Tito's sons will.

It's only appropriate. The family used him from the beginning, so there's no reason not to use him at the end.
