Michael Jackson’s First Moonwalk

Michael Jackson's iconic moments are too numerous to list, so for now, we're just going with the first one that popped into our heads: MJ performing "Billie Jean" at Motown 25, supposedly the first time he busted out the moonwalk. It's an electric performance all around, Jackson absolutely owning the crowd with nothing more than a solo spotlight and a sequined glove. But check out the squeals of delight, at 3:44, when MJ starts gliding backwards.
