mjfuneral200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - The King of Pop will finally be laid to rest tonight, over two months after he passed away.

In a private, "friends and family" only service, Michael Jackson will be interred in the Great Mausoleum at LA's Forest Lawn, which houses, among others, Walt Disney, John Wayne, and Nat King Cole.

CNN reports that Gladys Knight will be performing at the service, but other than that, it appears to be quite low-key compared to the memorial service held in July.

The mausoleum was closed yesterday in preparation for tonight's funeral, which bars the media from attending.
