Michael Jackson, during his time, always ruled the box office charts and happened to be the most admired guy by everyone. Any budding dancer would first try to imitate his moves and start learning to dance from his music videos

On a fortunate note, he made a comeback after nearly 6 years with his final album Invincible. Luckily it was declared to be a big hit and sold nearly 10 million copies across the world

His music videos have had phenomenal impact across the music industry, media and the people as a whole. It was considered to be a special art form because of its uniqueness, special effects, creative story lines and of course his dance movements
