Do You Remember The Time…
In 1983 Michael performed his hit single ‘Billie Jean’ at the Motown 25 event and the performance instantly became legendary. Not only did he debut his famous moonwalk during the show, he also introduced his single, white rhinestone glove with the matching Cufflinks to the world.
Something you might not have known about that night: during the performance, Michael tossed his sequin jacket to a fan in the audience. Apparently, somebody then grabbed the jacket and stole it from the fan. Michael saw this however, and sent his bodyguards to retrieve the jacket. Later, he personally returned the jacket to the fan backstage.
Slave to the Rhythm
At the Billboard Awards this year, Jackson was briefly resurrected again for a mind-blowing performance. A hologram Michael Jackson was shown dancing and singing to ‘Slave To The Rhythm’, a new song from his posthumous album Xscape, released this May. We were amazed by the awesome technology, and thrilled to see a glimpse of the King of Pop once again. In case you missed it, see the special performance in the video below:
