    Michael Jackson died five years ago today, but remains for many, the King of Pop.

    The biggest-selling music artist in the world at one time, the groundbreaking entertainer continues to moonwalk his way into eternal superstardom—taking the stage as a hologram just last month, in a highly anticipated performance at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards.

    Present-day crooners who have taken cues from the gloved-one—Justin Timberlake, Usher and more—have sometimes taken their admiration a step further like Timberlake's appearance on Jackson's just-released posthumous album XScape.

From longtime friends Elizabeth Taylor and Brooke Shields to former child star Macaulay Culkin in attendance with his then-girlfriend Mila Kunis, take a look back at the famous faces who came out to celebrate the life of the talented visionary.
