Michael Jackson’s hologram dazzled at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas as the late King of Pop reclaimed the top of the charts back in the UK with a new album.

The hologram performed “Slave to the Rhythm,” a song from Jackson’s new posthumous album “Xscape,” along with a plethora of background dancers, beaming lights and fire blasts.

It mirrored the late King of Pop’s signature slick dance moves as some members of the audience became emotional.

Xscape, the second posthumous album of previously unreleased tracks by the late star, has gone straight to the top of the album chart, shunting last week’s number one, Sheezus by Lily Allen, off the top spot.

The album features eight previously unavailable songs originally recorded between 1983 and 1999, which have been given extra sparkle by well-known producers such as Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and Stargate.

The original versions also feature on a deluxe edition of the album.Jackson died in June 2009 as a result of an overdose of the anaesthetic propofol as he prepared to make a live comeback with a string of shows at London’s O2 Arena.Some unreleased material came out the following year on an album called Michael.
