The Grammy stage has witnessed several memorable performances, which may have played a role to take the artiste's career to the next level. The performances have defined an era and a faithful repertoire of cultural shifts. As the 65th Grammy Awards just took place, let's revisit some of the iconic performances of all time.

Michael Jackson, 'The Way You Make Me Feel' / 'Man in the Mirror' (1988)

Although his 1987 classic "Bad" lost album of the year to U2's "The Joshua Tree," Jackson won the night with this epic 10-minute medley. Alone and dancing center-stage for most of the performance, MJ proved that he only needed a mic and a moonwalk to captivate a crowd.

Eric Clapton, 'Tears in Heaven' (1993)

Two years after the tragic accidental death of his 4-year-old son, Conor, the guitar icon performed this heartbreaking tribute at the 1993 Grammys. "I want to thank my son for the love he gave me and the song he gave me," Clapton said during the show.
