Notable performances[edit]

  • Michael Jackson, who sang "Remember the Time" during the ceremony, sat in a wheelchair on the stage throughout the entire performance due to an injured ankle;[1] dancers accompanied Jackson on choreography. Eddie Murphy, who was presented by Jackson with the Heritage Award, jokingly remarked "Isn't it nice to see him getting out and giving people awards.... I'd like to thank Michael for hobbling out here and giving me this award."
