We know them for their lyrical talent (or lack of) but the real question is, can they bust a move? The best singers aren’t always the best performers, especially on the dance floor.
Michael Jackson was as famous for his dancing moves as he was for his record-breaking hits. And icon Prince made a name for himself with his risque, but incredibly talented stage antics. And with the recent revolution of the viral video, wonders such as Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus have become famous for their signature moves. Love ’em or hate ’em, they got your attention!
We will be looking more at the current artists and not the past legends/icons with likes of; Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown, Janet Jackson and lots more .
