Please welcome N’sync
there are very few names in this business that can be actually considered the royalty. From the king Elvis Presley to, of course, queen, the king of soul，R&B Solomon Burg. But we are very lucky tonight, we get to induct the king of pop Mr. Michael Jackson. From that extremely cool and yet astonishingly talented little boy leading the Jackson 5 to the solo artist who knocked us out with hit after hit, until he had not only racked up more awards than any musical artist in history but infiltrated the sounds of our lives.
在娱乐界很少有人能被认为是娱乐界的皇室。从到被称为KING的Elvis Presley, 当然还有queen，还有灵魂和蓝调乐之王Solomon Burg。但我们今晚很荣幸的能够授予流行乐之王Michael Jackson这个奖。从那个带领J5表演的很酷也极具才华的小男孩，到今天的独唱歌手，他用接连不断的上榜单曲震撼了我们，如今，他不仅拿下了音乐史上最多的奖，而且还将他的音乐融入了我们的生活。
Well all this time we thought we knew him so well, it was he who knew us, he knew what would move us emotionally, he knew what would make us move onto the dance floor, in vain to attempt to imitate his amazing and completely original dance steps. Ah we knew the words（这里他说错了）, uh he knew the words we wanted to say and the sounds we wanted to hear.
When the Jackson 5 was inducted to the rock n’ roll hall of fame, Michael became the youngest living artist to be honored, but tonight he’s broken his own record by becoming the youngest living solo artist to be inducted.
But that’s far from all the record held by Michael he’s had the longest span of the number 1 hits in the US, he shares the record for most grammies won in a single year, he holds the record for an album going to NO. 1 in more countries than any musician in history, he holds the record for the most NO.1 singles from an album, and he co-wrote the biggest selling single of all time-----we are the world. For more than 35 years Michael Jackson has been the man in the mirror, he thrilled us with the thriller---the largest selling album of all time, beat us at our own game with beat it, he rocked us to our souls with rock with you, he’s bad, he’s dangerous, and if he thinks we are gonna let him stop because we had enough as they so often say in the city, forget about it. There ain’t no stopping, there ain’t no enough, he’s the king of pop, the one the only-------Michael Jackson.
但这一切与Michael 所有的记录比起来差了很远。他拥有美国最长榜首单曲的记录，他与人享有一年赢得最多格莱美奖的记录，他拥有专辑销量在最多国家第一的记录，他拥有一张专辑中最多冠军单曲的记录，他与人合作写了史上最畅销单曲----we are the world. 在35年多的职业生涯里Michael Jackson一直是man in the mirror, 他用thriller—史上销量第一专辑，颤栗了我们，用beat it在我们自己的游戏中打败了我们，他用rock with you摇滚了我们的灵魂。他很“坏（bad）”,他很 “危险（dangerous）”. 如果他认为我们会让他停止创作因为我们听够了，就像人们在这个城市总是说的那样，想都别想。不会停止，不会听够，他就是流行之王，唯一的------Michael Jackson.
背景介绍：Michael Jackson is the biggest pop star of his generation, he started performing with his brothers at the age of 5, he displaying the dance moves and the vocal ability of a talent far beyond his years, Michael and the Jackson 5 achieved phenomenal success, but that was just the beginning, with 1979’s off the wall, Jackson cracked a daring high xxx（？） of rock pop and R&B, which generated more hit singles，It seemed an untoppable feat. Jackson’s next album changed the record business forever, and shattered barriers between black and white music, the clip for thriller marked the arrival of the music video as a true art form and Michael’s inspiring dancing raised the bar for all performers. Thriller became a greatest hits album all by itself xxxx（应该是产生的意思）an extraordinary 7 top ten singles, winning 8 grammy awards, and becoming the best selling album in history. Jackson refuse to rest on his lorals（词不确定）. He played the xxxx(?) crowds around the world, he continue to release smash albums, he put his fame to work helping others, he co-wrote we are the world for US save for Africa, and he has raised millions of dollars for children’s causes. Michael Jackson’s career has reached astonishing heights, he’s made the difficult seem effortless and the magical seem real.
Michael Jackson是这个年代最闪耀的流行乐之星，他从5岁起和哥哥们一起表演以来就显示了超越年龄的舞蹈和演唱天赋。Michael 和J5取得了非凡的成就，但那只是个开始。从1979年的专辑off the wall，杰克逊跨出了涉及摇滚乐和蓝调音乐的大胆的一步，从那张专辑里又产生了更多的上榜单曲，它似乎成为了无法超越的作品。但杰克逊的下一张专辑永远的改变了唱片界，并粉碎了黑人与白人音乐的隔阂。Thriller的短片标志着音乐录影带成为真正的艺术形式，Michael那激发灵感的舞蹈提升了所有表演者的标准要求。然而杰克逊拒绝了停止工作享受他的成就。他满世界巡演，面对疯狂的歌迷，他继续发行出色的专辑，他用他的名声帮助他人，他与人合作为美国拯救非洲组织写了we are the world，他为了儿童事业筹集好几百万美元。Michael Jackson的事业达到了惊人的高度，他可以让困难的事显得那么容易，让魔法成为现实。
Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Jackson
