Michael Jackson wore his mother's jacket for good luck when he debuted the moonwalk during a 1983 Tv special.
The King of Pop and his brothers were scheduled to mark the 25th anniversary of their music label Motown Records with a special performance at celebratory bash Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever in March, 1983, and Jackson was so nervous ahead of the big gig he ransacked his mum Katherine's closet to find a lucky outfit to wear.
Fondly remembering Michael's iconic Billie Jean routine during an appearance on America's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (26Jun12), Jermaine Jackson said, "He didn't know what he was gonna wear so he went to my mother's closet. And she had this shiny thing that she wore, this black sequin thing and he said, 'I like that. Can I wear it on the show?'
"That's what he did the moonwalk in... That was my mother's throw."

Old, old news contactmusic, We all knew this years ago! Why not write about all the good Michael did in his life, all the contributions he made to help others not only in the USA but, all over the world or is that above your standards?

Kimber, the only reason this is being brought up again is because the Jackson Brothers were on Jimmy Fallon's Show last night and Marlon and Jermaine told this story to a host, band members and an audience who were totally surprized about this little fact. They had never heard about this. They at least kept the subject of MJ on an upbeat and happy tone. Anyone who are fans of MJ knows the story of Ms. Katherine's jacket and that it was worn when MJ did the moonwalk, but alot of people didn't know about it, so I assume it will be repeated each time the brothers say anything on a TV show etc. talking about their Unity Tour. So Contactmusic and others will probably be reporting everything the Brothers say, you know kinda like what they did to Michael, (I hope Not). At least their Tour has been to sold out audiences. Good luck to The Jacksons. I'm sure Michael is smiling down on his brothers and with that big heart of his he is happy for them!!!

YANNI54, so true. The media is ruthless when it come to the Jacksons. I am glad the show was upbeat and a happy one. I also wish the brothers well on their tour and yes, I am sure Michael is smiling down on his brothers :)

And they couldn't have another way to promote their so-called show all in the exploitation of Michael Jackson's name, of course! They tried to convince him to do that for a long time and he never wanted to! Anything to grab money. No surprise anyway!
