Usher paid a touching tribute to his idol Michael Jackson during a recent tour stop in London.

The R&B crooner, who has credited the late superstar for being his mentor, did the King of Pop’s signature moonwalk halfway across the stage in the second night of his five night residency at London, England’s O2 Arena; the same arena were Michael Jackson was to play for 50 nights in 2009/2010 before his untimely death in the summer of 2009.

“Losing one of the world’s greatest entertainers is sad – while we didn’t get the opportunity to see him perform here, let’s pay tribute to him,” he told the screaming crowds before putting his feet into a pair of black sequinned shoes. “Michael, we will never forget you – we will always remember,” he added.

Meanwhile, Usher is rumored to perform alongside Slash and the Black Eyed Peas tonight during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show today in Dallas, TX.
