R&B sensation Usher performed Michael Jackson's song "Gone Too Soon" from his Dangerous album at Tuesday's memorial, serenading the casket that carried the King of Pop as it left the stage.

Fans could be heard shouting, "Long live the King!'

Lyrics to the song, about someone who dies too young, include the following:

Like A Comet Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly And Splendidly Bright Here One Day Gone One Night
