Michael Jackson will forever be known as the King of Pop.

The entertainer, icon, humanitarian and music legend passed away on June 25, 2009 in a moment that literally stopped time. In the years since, the King of Pop’s name has only grown beyond belief as his videos are still being watched, his music is still played around the globe and he may very well be the last entertainer who people saw on stage and immediately fainted.

Let’s look back at some of MJ’s best performances where he was almost without peer – the stage.
