On this day in 1970, Michael Jackson and the rest of the Jackson 5 introduced themselves to America with their TV debut on American Bandstand. They performed a few hits and Michael also talked to Dick Clark for a bit.
The performances show not only that the group were amazing performers working together, but that Michael was a superstar in the making.
Watching MJ sing and dance like that as an 11-year-old kid looks and sounds great in these classic videos, where the group perform classic hits like “I Want You Back.” One of these videos also features “ABC,” but it appears to be just the video with the audio of the original single edited in.
Oh well, watching Michael dance could be good enough!
