The infamous Michael Jackson Moonwalk forever changed music, dance, and culture as we knew when he did the dance move on television back in 1983. During a tribute to Motown, a young Michael Jackson performed a dance move that stunned the crowd and the world.
The dance move known as the Moonwalk was actually performed before Michael Jackson made it famous. The dance move was used by Cab Calloway in 1932, Judy Garland in 1944, and even James Brown in 1980. However, it took MJ one night on television to claim the signature move and to finally put it on the map.
