Michael Jackson wasn't just the King of Pop, he was also the King of MTV and the greatest video star of all time. It wasn't because of his amazing special effects and wardrobe choices; he was king because of his insanely innovative dance numbers. Jackson has influenced a generation of performers, including Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Britney Spears, who'd probably just be standing behind a mic belting out a tune were it not for the Gloved One. As we observe the fourth anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, we bring you his signature moves, from his early days with the Jackson 5 to the moment he unleashed the Moonwalk and beyond. -- By Amy & Nancy Harrington
