This is my first post, very excited to hear from you all...

I am writing a piece regarding the reaction Michael gave to only being nominated for Best R&B Vocal Performance. I believe that this event added to the spark that lit the fire inside him to create Thriller.

I was wondering if anyone could give me anymore information (with sources) regarding his reaction. What I have so far is:

1. He did not attend the awards because of this
2. He watched at home with Katherine, Latoya and Janet
3. It was on Weds Feb 27 1980
4. After crying a lot, he said out loud "You watch. The next album I do, you just... I'll show them"
5. He was upset Off the Wall didn't win Record of the Year and he told John Branca "it can never happen again".

That's about it. Any other details you could help me out with (big or small" would be greatly appreciated, particularly events leading up to this and after.

Thank you
