Michael Jackson's kids Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket appeared on last night's edition of The X Factor! As the show paid homage to the late pop icon, his kids made a surprise appearance right on the heels of the sentencing of Dr. Conrad Murray earlier this week.

Jermaine, Tito and Marlon Jackson introduced their mother and their children who got a standing ovation from the studio audience, not to mention judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and L.A. Reid.
According to RadarOnline, Prince Michael chatted it up with host Steve Jones and said, "We're very excited to be here."
Paris sounded just as psyched to be there and explained, "I love this show very much." Let's not forget about their grandmother Katherine! She apparently's a huge fan, too! "I don't miss an episode of this show…I am so very excited to be here."
Simon praised the late King of Pop and called him "one of the greatest artists in the world."
