BET: Michael Jackson and James Brown perform at the 2003 BET AwardsA huge shadow will be cast over Sunday's live broadcast of the BET Awards due to the sudden death of Michael Jackson, whose music videos were a mainstay on the channel during the singer's heyday in the 80s and 90s.The self-proclaimed King of Pop, who died Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home, gave the network one of its more memorable moments during a surprise BET Awards '03 appearance with James Brown.As Brown was wrapping a performance of his hit "Sex Machine," it was Jackson who strolled up behind him to place the cape on his back â€" surprising both the Godfather of Soul and the audience.Before they left the stage, Brown encouraged Jackson to get on the good foot, sending the audience into hysterics.
