Usher

The list would not be complete without Usher. With the release of his second album, My Way, came a series of hit singles with accompanying videos highlighting Usher's talent as a dancer. He immediately was called the "next Michael Jackson" thanks to his ability to mirror many of MJ's memorable moves –– not to mention his vocals. "I studied his moves, studied them down to a T," Usher told MTV in 2009, following Jackson’s death. Prior to that, he shared the stage with the King of Pop in 2001 for a dance-off on the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special. Usher has said that without MJ, there would be no him, and that's not hard to believe.
