LOS ANGELES (CBSMiami/CNN) – The King of Pop will be immortalized Thursday outside Hollywood’s famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

Michael Jackson’s three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket will sink their famous father’s shoes and a sequined glove into the cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre to pay tribute to the late singer and to mark the Los Angeles run of a Cirque du Soleil production featuring his music.

Other family, friends and celebrities are planning to attend the event, including Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of the famed musical family, and sons Tito, Marlon and Jackie Jackson.

The celebrity guest list includes Justin Bieber, Smokey Robinson, Chris Tucker, members of the cast of “Glee,” and Quincy Jones, according to organizers.

Teen boy band Mindless Behavior, known to be a favorite of 13-year-old Paris Jackson, also is expected to be on hand.

Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson have been more public in recent months in contrast to their lives before their father’s 2009 death when they were shielded from public view.

The children attended the Canadian premiere of the traveling Cirque du Soleil show with their grandmother in October.

The “Immortal” show is touring the United States and Canada through this year before taking up residency in Las Vegas.

Michael Jackson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star is on the sidewalk in front of the theater.
