Michael Jackson

The video for [lastfm]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]’s Billie Jean had a serious impact on the music industry, and MTV in particular. Its heavy airplay on the network is often credited with pushing MTV out of obscurity and into the mainstream. The video was also the first by a black artist that was featured prominently on MTV.

Billie Jean further contributed to Jackson’s timeless persona when he debuted the moonwalk while performing the song while wearing, for the first time, his now trademark single white glove.
