    MJ sexually abused you boys, one as young as seven, he was pedophile so therefore should NOT be included on ANY list other than for being a sexual predator & pervert!!!

    I can't believe you left out Whitney Houston. Her Grammy performances used to make me tingle from head to toe.

    Singularly the worst top ten mojo have ever done. Michael Jackson Billie Jean performance was ten times better. Adele at the Brits 10 x better, in fact every artist you’ve shown has had a better live performance, and in some cases many have performed better multiple times except one....Kanye West has never ever performed great live. What the fuck is this complete and utter prick and terrible live performer doing anywhere near a top ten list? Beggars belief!

    What the actual heck where is Gaga? I don’t care that you put her in the opening few seconds, her born this way 2011 was WAY more iconic, original and creative than Eric Claptons performance (respectfully). She should have been in the top 3. Five at least 🙄

    Seems like you folks are in a time capsule. Everything is like within the last 15 to 20 years. Nothing amazing happened before then! I bet there was, you all got lazy in your research.

    To see Michael Jackson on the stage by himself for Man In The Mirror, it still felt like the stage was filled...Part of that elite group of solo artists that can pull that off!

    Sorry but the only thing amazing in MJ's performance was that it's MJ.
    There wasn't anything that special , a choir ? Wow such a breakthrough !

    Ugh come on. Whitney had an amazing voice, Adele has an amazing voice. Music will always be subjective. Either enjoy it or turn it off. Life is too short to getting into arguments about it.

    How can anyone think of Michael Jackson without remembering him being a wicked pedophile? Thank God he isn’t still raping little boys.

    Uh, Prince doing Purple Rain for the first time on the big stage... at the AMAs, if I'm not mistaken. Legendary. What about Janet Jackson doing a medley of Control, Nasty, What have you done for me lately? That was her breakout that made her a star. Both were better than your No. 1 alone. This is what you get when the people who make this list were born in 1990 or after.

    P!nk’s Glitter in the Air was the most beautiful and mesmerizing performance ever! Not even in your honorable mention? Christina Aguilera opening with Burlesque - you missed several slam dunks

    Loved it when Billy Joel stopped mid-song and commented about wasting advertising time as a protest to how they rushed Frank Sinatra off the stage.

    If it wasn't for the number one, the title "... Of all times" shouldn't have sense, I remember Alanis's you oughta know version was amazing.

    How is it you missed Whitney Houston's once-in-a-lifetime, 1989 opening performance of "One Moment In Time"????

    And John came on to give Eminem support after the gay community gave him backlash for something that they thought he said that was homophobic. Elton John absolutely took the side of the performer and came on to show him and everyone else that he was in support.

    The Kanye And Daft Punk Collaboration Of "Stronger" And Adele Preforming "Rolling In The Deep" Was One Of My Favorites! Thanks Watchmojo!

    Well, I'm a skeptic, but you never lost me, great top 10. From The Boss and Costello, to Daft Punk twice, to the king of pop music, and you even made me not hate Adele for a minute.

    ♡♡♡Eric Clapton co- wrote this song "Tears in Heaven" for his 4 year old son, Conor, who fell from a window, to his death in 1991.♡♡♡
    The "behind the scenes" info that this narrator gave regarding that song is slightly off. It really wasn't intended to be for all his losses... It was solely for his sweet son💗

      I agree. It was about his son. I wondered too when I heard about "loses in his life" that was off. Not about that.
