Pop star AARON CARTER is hoping his late pal MICHAEL Jackson's sequined jacket will bring him luck as he competes in the upcoming season of hit U.S. talent show DANCING WITH THE STARS.
The singer plans to wear his gift from the King of Pop while he competes for gold opposite the likes of Macy Gray, Kelly Osbourne and Donny Osmond - because he thinks Jackson's dancing magic will rub off on him.
Carter tells U.S. TV news show Extra, "I’m gonna continue to embrace this jacket and wear it in honour of him and all the good things he did and tried to do in this world." And the I Want Candy hitmaker insists he's in the TV competition to win: "I don’t want to lose... This is not a joke."
