Whatever you think of Jacko, there was no doubt that he could bust a move or two on the dancefloor.
And none were more famous than his moonwalk dance, which wowed the world when it was first unveiled during a performance of Billie Jean in 1983. The signature move is achieved by putting weight on a lifted, standing foot, whilst dragging the other foot flat to the floor.
Check out the brilliant gif infographic below, designed by Jacob O'Neal, which explains exactly how to do it, and you'll be moonwalking in no time - and check out the master in action below if you need a demonstration.
