Happy 30th Anniversary to Michael Jackson’s moonwalk!

On March 25, 1983, a 26-year-old Michael Jackson shocked the world during a performance at the Motown 25th anniversary special by rising up onto his toes and gliding backwards, almost as if he were defying gravity.

The slide was brief, but it was stunning — so much so that many audience members suspected special shoes or effects might be involved.

But there was no movie magic behind Michael’s moves; just pure, simple talent.

The ‘moonwalk’ went on to become one of the most iconic dance moves of all time after that performance, turning Michael Jackson into a household name and forever cementing his title as the king of pop.
