Jackson Family Reunite-Michael Missing
Members of The Jackson Five reunited onstage at the BMI Urban Awards on September 4th.
Four of the Motown legends - Tito, Jackie, Marlon, Randy - accepted a lifetime achievement prize from sister Janet Jackson at the ceremony.
When asked where Michael was, Marlon replied, " he bizarrely claimed he was "away riding a camel in Egypt somewhere."
The siblings refused to let the absentees spoil the occasion, as they enjoyed a tribute performance by the likes of R+B singers Mario, Keri Hilson, JoJo and Lloyd, who teamed up to deliver a cover of I'll Be There.
The occasion was turned into a real family affair when the Jackson 5 members - who did not perform - posed for photos on stage with parents Joseph and Katherine, and sisters Janet, LaToya and Rebbie after receiving the Icon prize.
It was also noted that Jermaine was not present as well. Okay, how can you receive a reward for being the "JACKSON 5," when only 4 of you show up? This is another "HUH?" moment from iriegal.
