Franklin Avenue Live Tweets the Michael Jackson Memorial

Read from the bottom up... and if you haven't started following us yet, do so now -- Franklin Avenue is over here.

OK, we're all now officially jackasses for Tweeting this memorial. Good night!

Marlon: The most underrated Jackson.

Oops: Jackson kept his kids shrouded in anonymity for years... only for them to appear right now on stage, televised to the entire world.

"This is It" -- turns out to be an unfortunate title for the concerts that will now never happen...

Really? A "Britain's Got Talent" finalist? OK, maybe it's time to wrap things up, folks. I'm starting to fear a Sanjaya appearance.

This is all fine, but what are Jon & Kate doing? RIGHT NOW. C'mon @usweekly, get off your lazy ass and tell me.

Just a note now: At my memorial service, please don't reference my acquittal for child molestation. Probably not necessary. Thanks.

Holding out for Corey Feldman's turn at the podium.

Apparently MLK III's promised land is very well catered.
11:53 from TweetDeck

OK, enough Jermaine. BRING ME TITO.
11:51 from TweetDeck

Bam! First "Blanket" ref of the morning!! Thanks Brooke!
11:46 from TweetDeck

Does anyone know whether Brooke Shields gets custody of Emmanuel Lewis?

Sharpton to kids: "Ain't nothing strange about your daddy!" Kids to Sharpton: "Uhh, thanks?"

Oh I'm sure AEG is on it. Kaching! RT @geoffberkshire: When can I download these Stevie Wonder and Jennifer Hudson performances for my iPod?
11:26 from TweetDeck

Gonna have to switch off the ABC web stream. Anchor just asked a pundit how this compares to the outpouring after Tupac's death. Whaa?
11:23 from TweetDeck

Must admit, this is a pretty well-done memorial. Kinda wish I'd tried to get tix. Was turned off by the whole spectacle, but classy so far
11:11 from TweetDeck

Poor Mayor V -- as @laobserved notes, our camera-lovin' mayor is on vacation (with Lu!), missing all this: http://bit.ly/FA59A
11:03 from TweetDeck

Boom! First Tito reference of the morning! Thanks, Barry Gordy.
10:58 from TweetDeck

Anyone else relieved/surprised to see that Ryan Seacrest isn't hosting this?
10:55 from TweetDeck

Psst, cops are a little distracted at the moment. Who's up for a little looting?
10:39 from TweetDeck

If a billion people really watching this, then I suppose Staples really did get its money's worth. Global urge to buy office products now?

If this is really "In Memory of Michael Jackson," what's with the unflattering pic of the King of Pop on the Staples Center screen?

This seems like a good time to remind everyone that Jermaine Jackson named his 8-year-old girl "Jermajesty." Say it out loud.

AEG's Tim Leiweke has been making the media rounds... and I notice how his grin keeps getting bigger. Just like the "Ka-ching" in his ears.

Does anyone know if Bubbles is attending? And is Muscles still alive?
