Michael Jackson is to be honoured with an imprint at a popular tourist site on Hollywood Boulevard.

The late King Of Pop's children Prince, Paris and Blanket are to make their mark with their father's shoes and sequined glove at the historic site outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre on January 26, reports AFP. The cast of Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour, a Cirque du Soleil show, are set to make a presentation at the event.

The site also features the prints of legendary stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Elizabeth Taylor, Fred Astaire, Sidney Poitier and Clark Gable.

Jackson's estate commented that the nod recognised the singer's groundbreaking short films for songs such as 'Thriller', 'Billie Jean' and 'Beat It'.

According to the estate, the site "is rich in tradition and provides the four million plus people a year who visit the site an up close look at the hand and footprints of Hollywood's most notable talents."

Jackson died on June 25, 2009 from an overdose of powerful anaesthetic propofol. Last November, his doctor Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison.
