Vote now in the poll below to tell us which moment in Michael Jackson’s illustrious career remains his most iconic. We’ve provided some suggestions, but don’t be afraid to write in your own personal answer:
Maybe Jackson’s most iconic moment is one of his earliest — the Jackson 5’s debut single “I Want You Back,” for instance, or MJ’s proper album debut with “Off The Wall.” Perhaps you most remember one of his big-budget, eye-popping music videos, like “Thriller,” “Black or White” or “Scream.” How about some of his unforgettable non-music moments, like kissing Lisa Marie Presley at the 1994 VMAs or his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acceptance speech? Quite possibly, your most iconic MJ moment is a simple foot shuffle — the first time Jackson moonwalked in 1983.
