Pop star Michael Jackson will launch his comeback with a performance of his hit single "Thriller" at the World Music Awards in London next week.
The World Music Awards will mark the 48-year-old Jackson's first live performance since he was cleared of child molestation charges in California last year, the BBC reported Wednesday.
Jackson will also be receiving the diamond award for his contribution to music at the awards ceremony on Nov. 15.
"It's his first performance in a long time," said a spokeswoman for the World Music awards. "It's something of a comeback if you like."
The World Music Awards gives out prizes based on global record sales.
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan will host this year's ceremony, which will feature performances from Beyonce, Katie Melua and Mary J. Blige.
Jackson reportedly plans to recreate the groundbreaking video for "Thriller" on the World Music Awards stage, the BBC said.
