A veritable who’s who of music was on deck to perform at Michael Jackson’s tribute concert.
Ne-Yo, one of many artists clearly influenced by the King of Pop, set the festivities off with classics such as “Billie Jean” and “The Lady in My Life,” complete with jacket and glove.
Beyonce performed via satellite an Afro, and performed “I Wanna Be Where You Are,” after being introduced by Jackson’s children, Blanket, Prince and Paris.
Other performers included Christina Aguilera (“Smile,” “Dirty Diana”), “X Factor” winner Alexandra Burke (“Who’s Lovin’ You,” “Scream”), and Leona Lewis (“Strangers in Moscow”).
A highlight of the show La Toya Jackson, whose performance was her first in two decades, performed “In the Closet” and “Jam” with Heavy D.
Cee Lo Green also contributed, belting out “I Can’t Help It.”
