#EntertainmentNews: Michael Jackson RETURNS for the Billboard Awards
They say you have not lived until you've died. Well last night the King Of Pop proved
his immortality at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, when audience members at the
MGM Grand Garden Arena were treated to a performance by the late Michael Jackson,
via a hologram projection of the iconic pop star, who died in June 2009.
Check out the performance below:
Jackson, performed "Slave to the Rhythm" midway through Sunday night's show with a five-piece
band and 16 dancers live onstage. Jackson appeared in gold jacket, white T-shirt and brick red trousers
on a set modeled on the art work for the album "Dangerous," an appropriate choice as the track was recorded
in 1991 with L.A. Reid and Babyface during the sessions for that album. Released this week on "XSCAPE," which
is neck-and-neck with the new Black Keys album for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 next week, the track was produced
BBMA producers Dick Clark Productions built a special stage at the rear of the MGM Grand Arena
that was used only for the Jackson performance. Dancers moved through aisles as Jackson was seen rising from
a throne, walking down steps before going into several trademark routines, a moonwalk being one of the them.
Lasers, streams of flames and dancers in ancient costumes were part of the film.
