A legend that left us too soon, The King of Pop [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] is still being award for his work beyond the grave. This year, MJ is up for a posthumous Grammy award, and knowing the power of Jackson’s music on the world, it still probably won’t be his last nomination.

Just in recent months, Michael Jackson’s estate released an entire new album of unreleased tracks from MJ’s vault, and his final performances were nominated for a Grammy this year. Jackson is up for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for “This Is It” along with other nominees including Adam Lambert, Bruno Mars, Michael Buble and John Mayer.
