中国人的迈克尔·杰克逊记忆 ( zhōngguórén de mài kè ěr·jié kè xùn jìyì) Chinese Memories of Michael Jackson
The death of Michael Jackson has shocked his Chinese fans around the world. On June 26, 2009, Chinese students from Beijing held a vigil in memory of Michael Jackson. After his death, Jackson’s Chinese website MJJCN.COM broke down because of the excessive number of visitors.

Michael Jackson’s influence on Chinese pop culture has surpassed any western popular star. His scandal 丑闻(chǒuwén), cosmetic surgery 整容(zhěngróng) and “black & white” debate “白与黑”争议(bái yŭ hēi zhēngyì) have brought China a real MJ. In 1980s, during which China opened up to the world, Chinese people got to know western popular culture through Michael Jackson.

With his magic steps, robotic dance moves and Moonwalk, he has influenced Chinese dancing as well. To commemorate the miracle of Jackson’s Dance, Chinese fans imitated Jackson’s Dance to express their grief and the unforgettable memories to the King of Pop 流行音乐之王(liúxíng yīnyuè zhī wáng).
