The Jackson's Feel "Empty" Without Michael

The Jackson's Feel

Michael Jackson has certainly been missed by his fans since his death seven months ago, and his family is still so upset they've felt "empty" without him.

"I still wake up every day and can't believe my brother isn't with us," says his brother Jermaine.

"No matter what we're doing - working in the studio or rehearsing dance steps - there's an emptiness there. You feel it constantly. It's bearing down on you,” Tito added. “Emotionally it's very difficult to sing these songs without Michael. Just to hear him on the radio is very emotional."

The Jackson's were touched by how many fans grieved Michael's death, but claim no one can miss him as much as they do.

"Michael was a major part of the Jackson Five and of course he was our brother long before we became famous,” Marlon said. “I don't think people will ever understand the loss of Michael as a brother versus as a pop star. Losing a sibling is devastating.”

On Sunday night Michael's children, Prince and Paris, accepted a lifetime achievement award on behalf of their father at the 2010 Grammy Awards.

"We're proud to be here to accept this award on behalf of our father, Michael Jackson," said Prince, as he tried to hold back tears. "First we'd like to thank God for watching over us for these past seven months and our Grandma and Grandpa for their love and support. We'd also like to thank the fans. Our father loved you so much since you were always there for him."
