The children have not been at a public event since their father's memorial service held two weeks after his death last June. It has been reported that Jackson's children will not enter the Los Angeles Convention Center through the red carpet Sunday night. Grandmother Katherine Jackson will bring them backstage.
At this time, Jackson's youngest son, Blanket, will not be on stage with his older siblings to receive Michael Jackson's Lifetime Achievement Award.
