Michael Died in June 2009
It's nearly five years after his death, but the King of Pop still rocks.
Michael Jackson's hologram performed yesterday at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards that were held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Clad in a gold jacket and a white T-shirt with a red trouser, Michael, in a hologram form, performed "Slave to the Rhythm" with 16 dancers live on stage. The hologram moonwalked across the stage. The track is off Jackson's new posthumous album, Xscape.
The audience was moved by the performance which had earlier been blocked by tech companies, but just two days before the award event, a federal judge ruled that the Billboard Music Awards could use the hologram.
Our very own Juliana Kanyomozi who is currently in New York on a short holiday was equally excited about the performance. "Woooowww Michael Jackson's performance at the billboard awards... Dayummnn. U have to see it. History maker even in death."
Did Ginimbi and Mimi Moana know they were about to die?
