Okay, here's the score. For 15 of you lucky readers, MTV has a soundtrack for "Michael Jackson's This Is It" and a limited edition concert ticket from the canceled European tour to give away, free of charge. The only catch is that you have to spread the word, social networking-style.
To enter for a chance to win both items, all you need is a Twitter account and a willingness to re-tweet. First, follow @MTV. Then, keep an eye out for the following tweet: "For chance 2 win MJ collectors This Is it Tix + sndtrac, RT #MJ MTV Twitter Ticket Hunt. First 15 to RT Wins!" Once you see that, simply re-tweet it and you're all set. Simple, right? The contest starts today and will run through tomorrow evening, ending at 6pm EST. Good luck!
