Michael Jackson launched the 'moonwalk' 32 years ago

After re-uniting with his brothers the Jackson 5 on stage, Michael Jackson more or less really launched his adult solo career in sparkling form, his singing and dancing his way to the pop pinnacle as he performed 'Billie Jean'.

 

Yesterday, March 25, 2015 made it thirty two years ago when King of Pop Michael Jackson debuted his signature move, the 'moonwalk' to the world.

In 1983, at Motown 25 TV Special the skinny black pop dynamite glided across the stage in an effortlessly cool manner that will reverberate all across the world.

After re-uniting with his brothers the Jackson 5 on stage, Michael Jackson more or less really launched his adult solo career in sparkling form, his singing and dancing his way to the pop pinnacle as he performed 'Billie Jean'.

The moonwalk, however was the hot highlight from the performance that got the whole world talking. From that night onward, Michael Jackson began his ascension to god like status in the world of pop.
