"Dancing with the Stars" producers said it plans to honor Michael Jackson with a special performance by the 16 professional dancers participating in this season's competition. The hour will pay tribute to the King of Pop with a medley of Jackson songs representing different eras of his long career, in a fusion of classic ballroom and Latin styles.

One member of the "Dancing With the Stars" troupe, Cheryl Burke, said Jackson and his music are "an inspiration to every dancer." Being part of this tribute, she says, "is an honor." The program airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
