The image is from the choreography of Michael Jackson's single "Billie Jean" from his sixth solo album Thriller. The music video depicts Jackson dancing along the sidewalk and tiles light up at his footstep. As he spins, Jackson jumps and the shot freeze frame as he land on his toes. During a live performance of "Billie Jean" at the Motown 25th Anniversary in 1983, Jackson premiered his iconic "moonwalk" sequence. "Billie Jean" topped music charts all over the world and spent seven weeks at number one on US Billboard Hot 100, and won the "Best R&B Song" and "Best R&B Male Vocal Performance" awards at the 1984 Grammy's.
