The King of Pop, in hologram form, rocked the stage with “Slave to the Rhythm,” a new track is off his posthumous album XSCAPE. Along with the unbelievably realistic three-dimensional technology, the performance consisted of a five-piece band and 16 live dancers. Other performers to grace the stage included John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Derulo and Robin Thicke, who sang his latest love song “Get Her Back” to his estranged wife Paula Patton.
