The rumors were true, and Miguel was invited to perform a special tribute to Michael Jackson at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
In honor of the re-release of MJ’s classic album Off The Wall, the R&B maverick took the stage and sang “She’s Out of My Life,” backed by the song’s original keyboardist, Greg Phillinganes. Images of the late icon appeared on a screen above them.
“It’s really hard to believe that it’s been more than 35 years since Michael won his first Grammy for a song from Off the Wall,” Miguel said before presenting the nominees for Best Rock Performance. “It’s an album that broke down barriers in pop music and it’s now the subject of the new documentary by the legendary Spike Lee.”
