Motown 25

Motown 25


Celebrating the first quarter century of the company that founder Berry Gordy Jr. turned into Hitsville, U.S.A. MOTOWN 25: YESTERDAY, TODAY, FOREVER! debuted on NBC on May 16, 1983. The highlight that caused the most talk was Michael Jackson's world premiere of his moonwalk (aka "six seconds that changed the world") but Motown 25 had an abundance of other buzz-worthy moments, reunions by the Miracles, the Supremes, and the Jackson 5; the first battle of the bands between Four Tops and The Temptations; and the hottest comedian in the world at the time, Richard Pryor, as host. Motown 25 was not simply a 2-hour TV was a flashpoint cultural event. Featuring almost 30 minutes of footage never broadcast.
