Michael Jackson FANS can’t get over how grown up his kids looked when Paris and Prince performed together at the Tony Awards.
MJ’s children, now 24 and 25 respectively, honored their father by performing a Grand Prize nominated performance from MJ: The Musical.
Prince took to the stage together, in an all-black suit, shirt and tie combo, and addressed the cheering crowd.
“A lot of people seem to think that our father Michael Jackson changed pop music forever,” he said. “And who are we that we disagree?
“But what people might not know is that he loved musicals, both in film and on stage.
“That’s why we’re incredibly honored to introduce the night’s first nominee for Best Musical, ‘MJ,’ who, through many of his legendary hits, sheds light on the complexity and brilliance of our father’s trial.”
Paris, nervously holding her hands while wearing a pink sleeveless dress, continued.
“This number showcases that creative process as he gradually builds a dance routine to one of his greatest love hits.”
MJ: The Musical, which follows the singer’s life during his Dangerous tour, has been nominated for 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Actor.
At the start of the show, it won the Tony Award for Best Choreography.
But on Twitter, fans could only focus on the offspring of the pop superstar
“Oh my god, Prince and Paris Jackson are all grown up?!?” one person tweeted. “I still see them as little kids.”
Another added: “Michael Jackson’s kids have grown up so much. Paris is beautiful!”
Before the show, Paris and Prince walked the red carpet and showed how close brother and sister are.
Also spotted on The Sun’s carpet were fellow Broadway legends and nominees Phylicia Rashad, Andrew Garfield and Jessica Chastain.
HISTORY OF PARIS
Last month, Paris opened up about her childhood in an interview with PopSugar after she was announced as the new face of KVD Beauty.
Discussing her upbringing in the entertainment world, she revealed that it made her have a complicated relationship with beauty: “It’s only in the last few years that I’ve started to feel really good about myself and my body.”
“Those moments of self-love don’t come around 24/7, but the bad moments are becoming rarer.”
She added that her father Michael’s philosophy helped her keep an open mind as she began a modeling career.
“I was raised by a free love hippie guy, so we were taught that beauty comes from within — and to this day I still believe that.”
While Paris is known for her love of piercings and tattoos, many of which have no special meaning, after years in fashion she has come to appreciate the power of makeup.
“All the experiences I’ve had over the past few years have brought me to this point,” she said.
“I appreciate the artistry behind it.”
Meanwhile, Prince looked a lot different than he did a few months ago when he and his girlfriend celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary.
At the time, Prince sported a beard and long hair and even a visible arm tattoo.
He also has a tattoo of his legendary father on his leg.
By his side for the photos was his longtime girlfriend Molly Schirmang.
The young romantic used heart emojis as he captioned the pics: “5 years together.
“Lots of travel, miles, smiles, meals, desserts, and all sorts of adventures in between.
“I love you babies.”
Michael died in 2009 at the age of 50 from complications of compound drug intoxication.
He left three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, 20.
Both Paris and Prince are the children of Michael and his second ex-wife Debbie Rowe.
Blanket was born in 2002 to an anonymous surrogate mother.
