Jack Ma performed a Michael Jackson-inspired dance to celebrate Alibaba's 18th birthday.

It was an occasion of Chinese firm Alibaba's 18th anniversary when Jack Ma chose to steal the spotlight.

Held in Hangzhou, company's party saw attendance from about 40,000 employees who came from a range of regions and countries. He arrived on stage by riding a motorcycle in a black and golden mask before started performing on Jackson's Billie Jean.

After channeling his inner King of Pop with a few splashy moves and poses, Ma pulled off the mask and revealed he was behind the dance moves. He then removed his disguise, which was greeted with roars of approval from the crowd, and was joined onstage by what are assumed to be other Alibaba execs for a quick dance to excerpts from unsafe and Black & White.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma is known for his showmanship.

Perhaps a good reason for the theatrics and celebration is that Alibaba was recently valuated at over $400 billion - making the company second to only Amazon.

Stocks hit an all-time high on August 17 after the company beat earnings estimates. At a similar party in 2009, Ma had dressed up as a heavy metal lead singer with a wig, black lipstick and sang the "The Lion King" theme song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" in front of his employees.
