Michael Jackson was booed off stage on Wednesday night. The music icon was booed following his long-awaited comeback at the World Music Awards.

The King of Pop, who seemed to be suffering from stage fright, struggled to hit the high notes and looked uncomfortable throughout his performance of "We Are The World."

The singer only delivered a handful of lines before being booed off stage. Jackson was accompanied by a children's gospel choir who sang most of the song before the 48-year-old even made it onstage.

When he did eventually appear, his loyal fans - some of whom had paid $640 to see him for the first time in the U.K. in almost a decade - were left disappointed as Jackson managed to only sing a few lines of the chorus, instead preferring to wave to the crowd and shout "I love you!"

One fan said, "It was such an anti-climax. All night the crowd were cheering his named and we waited for ages before he finally came on stage to sing.
The choir sang the whole song, I could only hear him mumble a few lines. He looked lost and didn't even attempt to try and dance. Everyone thought he would sing 'Thriller.' So much for the return of the King of Pop, it was embarrassing."

Jackson, dressed in his trademark black, threw his sequin jacket into the crowd, posed with the choir and left the stage - after only four minutes.
Fans had been expecting him to perform his seminal hit "Thriller," but that was performed earlier in the night by new star Chris Brown. Brown - dressed in a tribute red and black leather jacket - was joined by a troop of "zombie" dancers.

Jackson was given the Diamond Award which honors artists who have sold more than 100 million records.

Introducing the singer to the stage, Beyonce said, "Tonight we are celebrating 25 years of 'Thriller. If it wasn't for Michael Jackson I would never have ever performed. I love you, we all love you."

This report seems one-sided. CNN TV show did a full report, and while he only sang a few lines to "We are the World" with a full choir, their report indicated a technical audio problem prevented him from doing more.

CNN interviewed fans that were happy to see him and hear him, even for that brief moment, and a others that wanted more. It wasnt a MJ concert so not sure what some fans were expecting. CNN made no mention or emphasized that he was "booed" off the stage. Sounds more like some folks expected a Thriller concert, and he simple did a "We are the World" bit.

Not defending Michael Jackson here, just think this article is tainted against him.

I heard the audio this morning on the radio.

It was AWFUL. For some reason the music cut out. And he was heard WAY off for about a second before he stopped.

Could some be LESS relevent yet still be in the public eye?

The only place he should be performing is for his roomy in the local pen.
