He's a Sure Thing - It would seem like a follow-up single to "All I Want Is You" would be difficult to choose, but Miguel decided to go the romantic route and deliver "Sure Thing."

Fashion Master - Sure, there are a lot of stylish dudes in music, but Miguel takes fashion to another level. From his hair to his sunglasses to the clothes that he rocks, everything is always different, but fly.(Photo: John Ricard / BET)

3. Black & Yellow - Someone should have cued Wiz Khalifa's "Black & Yellow" when Miguel hit the red carpet of the VMAs since he wore an all black outfit highlighted by a yellow cardigan. He completed the look with a bowtie and gave us one of his more tame and conservative outfits.(Photo: Anthony Harvey/PictureGroup)

Musical Prodigy - Miguel has always been influenced by music. He started dancing when he was 5, songwriting when he was 8, producing when he was 11, and then by the time he was 13 he signed his very first production deal. Not too shabby!(Photo: Anthony Harvey/PictureGroup)

Love and Romance - In case you were wondering what inspired the album All I Want Is You, Miguel has said that it's based off three very serious relationships that he had. You love, you live, and you learn.(Photo: Paul Abell/PictureGroup)

Go Retro - Earlier this week, Elton John expressed his interest in doing some hip hop music and it looks like he's already started. With the re-release of his classic album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, there are a few remakes, one being "Bennie and the Jets" by Miguel and Wale. Let's just say that the stars do the original justice and then some. Listen here. (Photo: Michael Buckner/Getty Images For BET)
