"My entire family wanted to be here tonight but it was too painful… To you, Michael is an icon. To us, Michael is family. And he will forever live in all of our hearts. On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much. Thank you so much," the 43-year-old singer said tearfully.

After that, host Jamie Foxx performed a duet of the Jackson 5's I'll Be There with singer-songwriter Ne-Yo to pay tribute to the late pop icon.
