Michael Jackson will be featured at the Billboard Music Awards in a way that has never been experienced before.
It had been announced that the Estate of Michael Jackson is behind the experience which will present Jackson in a way that fans have never seen before, Billboard reported.
Not much is known about what this experience will include but it has been made known that it will be a "thriller" of an experience.
ABC will be broadcasting the show that will be taking place on May 18 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand.
USA Today added that even five years after his death, Jackson is still changing the music industry. His latest single "Xscape," will be released on May 13 with eight "contemporized" castoffs that Jackson had recorded from 1983 to 1999.
Epic Records chief Antonio "L.A." Reid met with Jackson's estate co-executor John Brance to create the track. Reid spoke about what an honor it was to work on this project and what went into the creation of the song. "My guiding principle was simple," Reid explained. "If Michael sang a song from top to bottom, it was an indication that he loved it. If he sang it multiple times, that was a strong indication that he wanted the world to hear it."
