Michael Jackson is set to make a comeback with golden oldie boyband New Kids On The Block.
The King of Pop had secret talks about the link-up with the band's stars at his home in Nevada last week.

New Kids singer Donny Wahlberg, 38, said: "It's very exciting. It's one big party and everyone wants to join us." The pop veterans announced the plan as they celebrated the launch of their first reunion tour in 20 years which starts in September.

New Kids were the original US boyband and sold 80 million records with hits including Hanging Tough and Right Stuff.

And they are just some of the artists collaborating with Jacko, 49, as he attempts to revive his career following his acquittal three years ago of child abuse charges.

The Bad singer was due to release his much anticipated album this year to coincide with his 50th birthday.

But a source said: "He has been in the studio for months. He wants to create an amazing album and won't release anything until he is totally satisfied.

"He's a musical genius and record bosses want to leave him to develop his magic. It will be down to him when it is released."
