Lionel Richie has said he found Michael Jackson's hologram performance at the Billboard Music Awards "freaky" and "a little bit over the top."

The singer told Access Hollywood, "It was freaky. I must tell you, it freaked me out because it's Mike.

"I have to tell you it was brilliantly done, but it just made me a little uneasy because it was just... I keep waiting for him and then I realise that is him, but it's not him."

The hologram performed Slave To The Rythm which features on Jackson's second posthumous album Xscape, which is out now.
