Note
  1. ^ Certain award groups do not simply award one winner. They recognize several different recipients, have runners-up, and have third place. Since this is a specific recognition and is different from losing an award, runner-up mentions are considered wins in this award tally. For simplification and to avoid errors, each award in this list has been presumed to have had a prior nomination.

Jackson's career was rewarded with 13 Grammy Awards, as well as the Grammy Legend Award and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; 6 Brit Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards and 24 American Music Awards. He currently holds 20 Guinness World Records. The organization also recognized Jackson as the world’s most successful entertainer in 2006.[4][5] He's a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, becoming one of only a few artists to be inducted twice (he was inducted in 1997 as a member of The Jackson 5 and again as a solo artist in 2001). Jackson was also inducted into the National Museum of Dance and Hall of Fame, making him the first and currently, only recording artist to be inducted.[6] He was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.[7] Jackson was also inducted in 2014 into the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame along with his father Joe Jackson.[8]

In 1984, Jackson was approached to donate "Beat It" as backing music for a commercial on drunk driving.[9] Jackson agreed and it was arranged for the singer to be awarded with an honor from the President of the United States, Ronald Reagan.[9] In April 1990, Jackson returned to the White House to be recognized as "Artist of the Decade" by President George H. W. Bush.[10] Two years later, on May 1, 1992, President Bush presented Jackson with an award acknowledging him as "a point of light ambassador".[10][11] Jackson received the award in recognition for his efforts in inviting disadvantaged children to his Neverland Ranch.[11] Jackson was the only entertainer to receive the award.[11] He has two Primetime Emmy Award nominations in 1983 and 1990.[12]

Soul Train Awards

The Soul Train Music Awards is an annual award show aired in national television syndication that honors the best in Black music and entertainment. It is produced by the makers of Soul Train, the program from which it takes its name, and features musical performances by various R&B and hip hop music recording artists interspersed throughout the ceremonies.

Jackson won six competitive trophies and was honored with four special awards, including the Sammy Davis Jr. Award for Entertainer of the Year and the Heritage Award for Career Achievement at the 1989 ceremony. In 1995, the awards show inducted him into their Hall of Fame.[24] In 1997, the video award was renamed the "Michael Jackson Award for Best R&B/Soul or Rap Music Video" until 2004 where it was renamed in honor of Berry Gordy until the category was removed before the 2008 show. Since 2011, it's been presented as simply "Video of the Year".

On November 2, 1995, Jackson was one of several performers to take part in The Soul Train 25th Anniversary Hall of Fame Special, alongside Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, MC Hammer, Patti LaBelle and Bill Withers. Jackson performed "Dangerous" and "You Are Not Alone" during that telecast. It was Jackson's second televised performance that year less than two months after he performed at the MTV Video Music Awards that year. Jackson was one of several inductees alongside Ross, Houston, LaBelle, Withers, Barry White, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye.

Jackson is only one of two artists to win the Sammy Davis Jr. Entertainer of the Year honor twice, first in 1989 and then in 2009 following his death that year. Beyoncé won it twice, one as member of Destiny's Child and later as a solo artist. After Jackson won the posthumous honor, which was accepted by his surviving brother Jermaine, however, the award was discontinued.

  1. ^ Listicles and charts are not included, unless they are explicitly described as "awards" or specific trophies are given.
  2. ^ Prior to the inauguration of the Billboard Music Awards in 1990, the magazine had the "Number One Awards" to honor the top-performing artists of the year on each of chart categories.
  3. ^ Shared with Michael Peters.
  4. ^ Credited to Jackson, Gregg Burge and Jeffrey Daniel.

  6. ^ Credited to Jackson and Vincent Paterson.
  7. ^ Since this award came after Jackson's death, the award did not go directly to him so it won't count to his awards tally.
  8. ^ In 1986, Jackson netted a deal with Pepsi worth between $12-15 million. It was once held as the most successful payout for a commercial spokesperson until the mid-to-late 1990s and early 2000s when superstars such as Britney Spears, Beyoncé and 50 Cent began to make upwards of $50 million off commercial endorsements. Jackson's record is broken.
  9. ^ Jackson's all-time Wembley record of 504,000 in 1988 was outdone in 2011 by the singing group Take That, who performed at Wembley Stadium for eight consecutive nights performing in front of a record 623,737 people, plus during Jackson's tour, he performed five consecutive nights on July 14, 15, 16, 22, and 23, then after stops in Wales, Ireland, Spain, France and Germany, he returned to Wembley for the last two nights on August 26 and 27, 1988.
  10. ^ Jackson possibly held this record until Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow in 2006 when the tour grossed over $126.8 million worldwide, topping the $125 million set by Jackson in 1989. Since then, other male solo artists such as Roger Waters, Justin Bieber, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney and Bruno Mars have had tours that have grossed more money than Jackson did. The record has since been claimed by Ed Sheeran, who leads among all solo artists and artists in general with his ÷ Tour in 2019.
  11. ^ Though he was listed in Guinness' book as the youngest chart-topper in 1999, in recent years, this was corrected to Stevie Wonder, who as a solo artist, first topped the charts with "Fingertips" in 1963 when he was just 13. Jackson's first solo chart-topper, "Ben", hit number one in October 1972, two months after he turned 14.
  12. ^ This record is likely now broken by Mariah Carey, who like Jackson, also records R&B music, as well as pop. Her recent number one was "All I Want for Christmas is You", which topped the Billboard Hot 100, on December 21, 2019. Jackson's span lasted 22 years and 19 days between "Ben" on October 14, 1972 and "You Are Not Alone" on September 2, 1995. Mariah's span is longer at 29 years and 139 days.[91]
  13. ^ The record now belongs to Pharrell Williams' "Happy".
  14. ^ Although Guinness World Records mentioned 26 wins, according to the American Music Awards' database, he is only credited with 24.
  15. ^ Jackson lost his record to Eminem and R. Kelly.
  16. ^ Since the record was set in 2011, Jackson posthumously placed two more top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 including "Love Never Felt So Good" in 2014 and "Don't Matter to Me" with Drake in 2018.
  17. ^ It's been reported that the estimated audience was 500 million worldwide in 27 countries though the number is just an estimate.
