Michael Jackson is getting his own 90-minute network special and will have the final say on what goes into the show. "Michael Jackson around the World," which airs July 30 at 11:30 p.m., will include footage of the singer on his current world tour in Japan, Rome, Berlin, Paris, Munich and London as well as some backstage scenes.

"Just like there was Beatlemania, there is Michael-mania," said David Benjamin, who is putting together the special with his "Friday Night Videos" partner Dick Ebersol. "There's no more exciting performer on stage than Michael."
