"Two weeks before he died, Michael Jackson wrapped up work on an elaborate production dubbed the 'Dome Project' that could be the final finished video piece overseen by the King of Pop," reports the Associated Press. "Shooting for the project lasted from June 1-9, with Jackson on the set most days. Now in post-production, the project is expected to be completed July 15."

If this report is true, Michael Jackson might win yet another Grammy for best video after three previous victories: "Scream" (best short form video, 1995, shared with sister Janet Jackson), "Leave Me Alone" (best short form, 1989) and "Making Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'" (best video album, 1984).

The same year he won in the short-form race for "Leave Me Alone," he was nominated in the race for long forms for "Moonwalker," losing to sister Janet's "Rhythm Nation 1814." He was also nominated in the short-form category in 1996 for "Earth Song," losing to the Beatles' "Free As a Bird."
