of Merit, the youngest artist to win it), making him the most awarded in one night for both award shows. These awards were thanks to the Thriller album, released in late 1982, which was 1983's best-selling album worldwide and became the best-selling album of all time in the United States, as well as the best-selling album of all time worldwide, selling an estimated 110 million copies so far. The album topped the Billboard 200 chart for 37 weeks and was in the top 10 of the 200 for 80 consecutive weeks.

of records, radio, rock video. A one-man rescue team for the music business. A songwriter who sets the beat for a decade. A dancer with the fanciest feet on the street. A singer who cuts across all boundaries of taste and style and color too". The New York Times wrote that, "in the world of pop music, there is Michael Jackson and there is everybody else".
In March 1983, Michael Jackson reunited with his brothers for a legendary live performance which was taped for a Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever television special. The show aired on May 16, 1983, to an audience of 47 million viewers, and featured the Jacksons and a number of other Motown stars. It is best remembered for Michael Jackson's solo performance

of "Billie Jean". Wearing a distinctive black sequin jacket and golf glove decorated with rhinestones, he debuted his signature dance move, the moonwalk, which former Soul Train dancer and Shalamar member, Jeffrey Daniel had taught him three years before. The Jacksons' performance drew comparisons to Elvis Presley's and The Beatles' appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. Anna Kisselgoff of The New York Times later wrote, "The moonwalk that he made famous is an apt metaphor for his dance style. How does he do it? As a technician, he is a great illusionist, a genuine mime. His ability to keep one leg straight as he glides while the other bends and seems to walk requires perfect timing.

(Part 1) Good night, sweet prince, For I cannot bear to say goodbye, And because I can see you In the light of the moon that you loved so, And in her graceful curves, Is she brighter tonight? But you are not gone, You are in our hearts, We feel your spirit, free now, It blankets us. Someone like you, With your great generosity of spirit, Never really dies. You bloom into the sky, A brilliant splattering of new stars, To shield us and to light our way, In a

world, now sadder, for your passing. But may we remember you for your legacy. Your legacy for me is Joy in this earth and our life upon it, Stewardship to preserve it for our children, Forgiveness for those who have hurt us, Listening to our children, Knowing that children spell love T-I-M-E, Compassion and unconditional love for all that we touch, How to be brother, father, sister, mother to all in the family of man, And never to miss an opportunity to dance the rhythms of our lives.

(Part 2) You were one of the rare, an angel in an earthly body. Now you are free to soar, my brother. And in our darkest hours, when we forget to keep our heads up, We will feel you behind us, enfolding us in your wings, Infusing us with your love, spirit, optimism, generosity, And the greatest courage this world has ever known. I will not say I will miss you, Because I will hold you close, And I know when we need you, You will be there. Peace and respite
