A 3D tribute to Michael Jackson is set to be shown at the forthcoming Grammy Awards, it has been revealed.

The tribute will come in the form of a 3D clip that was made for Jackson's 1995 UK Number One hit 'Earth Song', originally set to be part of his 'This Is It' London O2 Arena residency last summer, reports the official Grammy website, Grammy.com.

The ceremony will take place at the Los Angeles Staples Center, and will be broadcast on January 31. 3D glasses are being given away in the USA free, from Target stores from January 24 to 31.

Ken Ehrlich, co-executive producer for the ceremony, said: "It was one of the most important portions of the concert tour to Michael and when Michael saw the film for the first time at his last rehearsal, there were tears in his eyes."

Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga are among the acts who will perform at the ceremony. See Grammy.com for more information.
