Some say that they won't let Michael Jackson rest in peace after last night's performance at the Billboard Music Awards. Yes, you heard correct.
"Michael Jackson performed a Hologram version of “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 by Timbaland. 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".
Is this creepy, or a great idea? What it leaves me wondering is why we didn't put this much effort later in his career about how amazing he was? We definitly miss Mr. Jackson, but is this too much?
God Bless You!
