As much as we may want to give others their props, 2009, without a doubt, has been the year of Maxwell. The man has been everywhere, from international tours to multiple appearances on network television (CBS, CNN, etc.) to almost every awards show. The exposure has been extensive and extremely well-deserved. Last night, during the 52nd Grammy Awards nomination special on CBS, not only was Maxwell recognized with six nominations for Blacksummers'night (including Song Of The Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Instrumental Performance, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song & Best R&B Album), but was also tapped to perform a tribute to the late MIchael Jackson. The Brooklyn native unleashed a stirring rendition of the King of Pop's "Lady in My Life" that left many a lady in a puddle where they stood. Turns out that was just the warm up, as the crooner also performed a post-show concert for the crowd. Below is the MJ tribute performance, which puts a pretty-winged bow on what has been a great year. Enjoy.
