Jackson Five members reunite
Members of The Jackson Five reunited onstage at the BMI Urban Awards last night (September 4).

Four of the Motown legends - Tito, Jackie, Marlon, Randy - accepted a lifetime achievement prize from sister Janet Jackson at the ceremony.

When Marlon was asked where Michael Jackson was, however, he bizarrely claimed he was "away riding a camel in Egypt somewhere", reports Associated Press. Jermaine Jackson was also not present at the ceremony.

"It's a great honour to know your music influenced a generation," said Tito. "We're very proud of this moment."

The Jacksons did not perform at the event, also attended by their father Joseph, mother Katherine and sisters LaToya and Rebbie.
