He is no longer here, but his memory lives on.

Five years ago today, Michael Jackson was stolen from us and people all over the world were left with a little less dance in their step.

Since Michael's passing, the uber talented performers that were so inspired by the the most iconic performer of all time have paid tribute to him with stellar performances.

In celebration of his supreme moves and voice, we'd like to remember those salutes.

So, in no particular order, ch-ch-check out our top 5 fave MJ tributes..AFTER THE JUMP!!!
