For those of us who were around during the 80s remember Motown 25 and many who weren’t have heard of it, for one main reason- Michael Jackson and the Moonwalk.
Motown 25 was a history making concert that aired on live TV on NBC in 1983. It was filmed in front of a live studio audience in California to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Motown and its creator Berry Gordy Jr. It was an amazing set of performers and performances by some the greatest Motown artist like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, The Supremes, and more.
The entire concert was a huge hit but what got the most talk the next day was Michael Jackson’s performance of Billie Jean. It was on Motown 25 that the world witness the Moonwalk for the first time. The Moonwalk is said to have “changed the world” and to this day is one of the most memorable moments in pop music history.
