Robin Thicke covered Michael Jackson's 'Rock With You' at his iTunes Festival concert on Tuesday night (24.09.13).
The R&B singer included the King of Pop's classic hit in his encore as he performed to a packed-out Roundhouse in London.
Robin followed up his Jackson tribute with a cover of Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together' before closing his set with his smash hit 'Blurred Lines' calling for fans to scream "you the hottest bitch in this place".
At the start of the concert, Robin's band whipped the crowd into a frenzy as they played his intro music, shouting: "Are you ready for the experience? Are you ready for the white man of soul? Here he is - Robin Thicke!"
The star then took to the stage in his trademark black suit, waistcoat and white shirt asking the crowd "are you ready, are you ready for me to take you to the mountain top?"
He then launched into new single 'Give It 2 U'.
Robin played a selection of tracks from his latest album 'Blurred Lines', including 'Take It Easy On Me' and 'Feel Good' as well as older songs such as piano ballad 'Dreamworld', 'Magic' and 'Shooter' which he merged into a brief rendition of Bob Marley's 'Everything's Gonna Be Alright'.
At one point the heartthrob musician - who was joined by three scantily-clad backing dancers - unbuttoned his shirt to reveal his chest prompting screams from his female fans and calls for him to strip to which he quipped "I can't take all my clothes off!"
Some cheeky fans brought along foam fingers in reference to Robin's much talked-about duet with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards during which she used the prop as she twerked against him which brought a smile from the musician.
