He started his solo career during the mid-eighties and became a global hit with his album 'Thriller' and from then on his solo career began to flourish. The album sold 20 million copies in the US alone, and to this day is the world's best selling album.
A year later he debuted his signature move ? the 'Moonwalk' ? on TV in front of 47 million viewers, and Jackson mania gripped the globe. He went on to score a total of seven UK number ones and won a total of 13 Grammys during his stellar career.
He has had a huge amount of hits including 'Man In The Mirror'. 'Beat It', 'The Girl Is Mine', 'We Are The World', 'Black Or White' and the infamous 'Billie Jean' which is bound to get people dancing along and trying to do the moonwalk.
