Ultra cool move that Michael Jackson performs. He walks forward and moves backwards. Everybody is just jealous because they don't know how to do it.
Dude did you see the Billie Jean video.

What is now known as the cobra which is rotating around on your heels while moving your upper arm/chest muscles to the beat was the original moonwalk. It can be seen in the first scene of the movie Breakdance, also on Michael Jackson Victory tour performances

The one Michael Jackson performed at Motown 25 is known as the backslide and was taught to him by Jeffrey Daniels and Geron Canidate who had performed it on Soul Train. Jeffrey Daniels first (not first ever) execution of the Moonwalk in the UK (82' TotP, introduction of street dancing to the UK) can be seen here

The earliest video for the backslide is that of Bill Bailey in 1955 (file origin from

People think it might date back to the 20's.

Other variations are gliding, which is when you do it to the side, moving forwards and staying static (on the spot).
1. Did you see when Michael Jackson performed the Moonwalk at Motown 25?

A dance move first performed by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson in Motown 25 while performing Billie Jean. It creates an illusion of moving forward while actually you are sliding back. Now everyone wants to learn it and be like MJ :)
Michael Jackson is the best moonwalker.

Two meanings:

1. Legendary backsliding dance move, perfected and made famous at the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today and Forever concert in 1983 by Michael Jackson and most commonly associated with his hit 'Billie Jean' as that is the song he first performed it to.

2. The name of Michael Jackson's 1988 autobiography.

Later adapted into the use of the word Moonwalker to describe a Michael Jackson fan alongside the names Soldiers Of Love (#SoldiersOfLove), MJFam and Jacksoneros.

Also not to be confused with Moonwalker which is also the name of Michael Jackson's 1988 movie comprised of alternate/extended music videos and short films.
'WOW, did you see that clip of Michael Jackson doing the Moonwalk?!'

'Just finished reading Moonwalk and cried about how much I love Michael Jackson.'
