Have Your Say In Deciding Michael Jackson’s Greatest Song!

On Friday, we shared our list of The 40 Greatest Michael Jackson Songs, but now it’s your turn to have your say. So as we gear up to this evening’s world broadcast premiere of This Is It, the 2009 documentary that followed Michael Jackson while he rehearsed for the “This Is It” tour, make sure you get involved. Vote right here, leave your comments, and get your Twitter fingers thumping (use #MJThisIsIt and be sure to include @VH1 in your tweets) to make your opinion heard.

So, what’s your favorite? Is it a Jackson 5 classic like “ABC”? Or something for MJ’s early solo career, like “Thriller”? Are you more of a contemporary fan for songs like “You Rock My World”? Or do you just love it all and can’t make up your mind so you wish you could vote for everything? It doesn’t matter what your opinion is, if you’re black or white or whether or not you can do the moonwalk — we want to hear from YOU!

Don’t forget, the world broadcast premiere of This Is It is happening TONIGHT at 9 p.m. ET, only on VH1!
