Michael Jackson- Billie Jean [1983] (Motown 25 Live)

I promise this is my LAST MJ post. I just had to post this one because we were watching it yesterday and Adam was trying to moonwalk while Sarah was singing Billie Jean is not my mother!

This is the original performance of Billie Jean at the Motown 25th anniversary in 1983. I just watched a documentary on this and they said he improvised all of these dance moves as he was singing. Originally he was just supossed to sing a number with his brothers but he said he would participate only if they let him perform a solo as well. Little did anyone know at the time but this would be the live performance that skyrocketed him as a solo artist and have everyone trying to moonwalk.

This is all I will dedicate to Michael. I hope he found peace and is with the Lord.
