Madonna’s Tribute to Michael Jackson
While opening up her Sticky and Sweet Tour in London at the O2 Arena, the same venue where Michael Jackson would have started his tour on July 13th, Madonna took a moment to give respect to the late King of Pop.
One of her Michael Jackson obsessed dancers, Kento dressed like him, took the stage giving the audience a taste of Michael’s signature moves, the Moonwalk of course, during “Billie Jean” and a medley of Michael Jackson songs.
Later Madonna told the crowd “Let’s give it up for one of the greatest artists the world has ever known – Michael Jackson!”

Madonna shared “. . . Kento, my dancer, was obsessed with Michael all his life. And when Michael was having auditions for his tour, Kento really wanted to go but he’d already made a commitment to me. So now he’s about to have his moment and be Michael at my show.” (Source: Madonna.com)
