In August 1983 James Brown and band were playing the Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles with legendary blues man B.B. King for what was already a formidable pairing of music royalty. Then halfway through the set that evening James Brown introduced a very special guest to join him onstage - a 25 year old Michael Jackson, hot on the heels of his Thriller album at the time, inconspicuously watching the show from the audience. Michael wowed the crowd with a spontaneous song and dance performance that was spectacular and all too brief.

*NOTE: Straight after Michael's mini performance James Brown asked Prince onstage. Sadly this footage doesn't include Prince but it can be found elsewhere on YouTube.

Wow... what a night! A bona fide star collision on one stage that was never to be repeated.
