His memory will last forever and now Michael Jackson’s children have helped memorialize him with a hand and footprint ceremony in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket Jackson, 9, attended the ceremony outside of Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theater and paid tribute to their late father.

“This, right here, is his lifetime achievement award,” said Prince, 14. “This is what he strived to get, and this is what we are giving him now.”

The Jackson kids made an imprint in the cement using Michael’s famous sequin glove and a pair of his dancing shoes, and each added their own handprint as well.

Also there to celebrate the King of Pop’s memory: his mother, Katherine, brothers Tito and Jackie, as well as Justin Bieber, Chris Tucker, Smokey Robinson and Quincy Jones.

“He meant so much to me,” said Bieber. “He was more than entertainer; he was an inspiration.”
