American Idol Michael Jackson Tribute Videos by Adam Lambert, Kris AllenKaren, 06.29.09, 10:29amPosted in: American Idol, NewsABOVE: Idol Winner Kris Allen Performs Jackson's "Remember the Time." In an effort to pay final tribute to the King of Pop, and make another buck on commercial sales, Fox is airing a special encore presentation/rerun of American Idol Season 8's Michael Jackson night special.

Odds are the snarky comments from the judges will be edited out of this airing of the show.

Idol fans may recall that during the MJ show, blind pianist/former judges' fave Scott MacIntyre performed an obscure Michael Jackson number called, "Keep the Faith." He said he picked the song because he wanted to do something artistic, which caused Simon to bluntly point out that, "It is fine being artistic, just not on this show." Good point, Simon.

This is glorified karaoke, afterall.

While the performances were met with mixed reviews by the judges, looking back at this performance special could be an interesting chance for fans to compare the performances of Idol winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert.

The fact that Lambert is the runner-up is often overlooked, as his outgoing persona tends to overshadow Allen.

However, word has recently surfaced that the two musical friends have expressed interest in recording together.

Maybe they'll make a great duo.

American Idol's tribute to Michael Jackson airs Monday, June 29 check local listings for times.

Before the show: Check out the complete list of all the Michael Jackson songs each of top 13 contestants will sing.

There's a good chance that these songs will become a big part of the upcoming 2009Â Idols Live tour dates featuring this season's top 10 contestants.
