Last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Beck delivered a lovely rendition of his Morning Phase standout “Blue Moon”. But it looks as though he might’ve given his best performance after the show’s cameras stopped rolling.

In front of a smaller audience, Beck served up a playful cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”. Maybe it wasn’t quite as epic as his live mash-up of “Billie Jean” and T. Rex’s “Get It On” back in 2013, but it’s awesome as hell seeing Beck joke around with the crowd, try to boogie MJ-style, and yes, even call out “Hee-Hee!” mid-song. Watch the fan-made footage below.
