michael jackson hologram performance billboard awards
*Damn, damn, damn!

Michael Jackson‘s hologram appearance at Sunday night’s Billboard Awards absolutely slayed it with a beyond the grave performance of “Slave to the Rhythm.”

If you didn’t see it on the show, broadcast by ABC, check it out below.

The very much alive looking Jackson via a three-dimensional hologram sang and danced his way through the new single, which normally features Justin Bieber. Fortunately Bieber did the right thing and took a seat and let the King of Pop do his thing. The realistic visual effect used the extra to show off some classic moves — including Jackson’s immortal moonwalk.

A realistic Jackson stayed on the stage background — near a throne adorned with an “M” — while real, tangible alive dancers joined him in the foreground. The performance pulled a standing ovation from the MGM Grand crowd in Las Vegas.

Watch the mind blowing performance:
