A Dueling Piano & Drum Cover Of Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’
June 15, 2013

Mention the name Michael Jackson, and the life he led, and almost everyone has an opinion.

But one thing's for sure, the man was an amazing and revolutionary entertainer - arguably the greatest who ever lived.

The great Motown producer Berry Gordy described his musical career this way: "Michael Jackson went into orbit and never came down."

In the video at the top, Michael Henry and Justin Robinett pay tribute to one of Jackson's greatest hits: 1983's 'Billie Jean' off the 'Thriller' album.

It's something to watch as they perform back-to-back in a dueling piano and drum cover that was shot entirely in one take.
