Michael Jackson's Memorial Participants Announced: Kobe, Mariah, Stevie, Berry G., Brooke, John Mayer (?!), Jennifer Hudson, Magic, Rev. Al, Usher, More.

Okay, this is an odd list. Is this not an odd list? Most specifically, John Mayer. Right? That's a left-field pick. Is he not the Leonard Zelig of our time? And Shaheen Jafargholi? Hmm. The rest is fascinating and spot-on. The participants for Michael Jackson's memorial tomorrow have been announced, one that WEST COAST SOUND HAS A TICKET TO! (Sorry, but that's scream-worthy, isn't it?) Yes, that is correct: We're inside the Staples Center tomorrow, and will be tweeting when it's not considered vulgar to do so.

Announcement after the jump:
