Usher Steals the Show with Michael Jackson Moves at Pistons Game

Great talents can emerge in the most unexpected places. This was the case when an usher at a Detroit Pistons game, Shannon Sailes, captivated the audience with his Michael Jackson dance moves. As “Billie Jean” played, Sailes showcased precise footwork and signature Jackson moves, energizing the crowd. Known online as the dancing usher, Sailes’ spontaneous performance quickly went viral, amassing three million views. His story is inspiring; initially worried he’d get fired, he’s now a beloved fixture at Pistons games and has appeared on major TV shows.

Sailes, who has been with the Pistons for years, initially started as a security guard before transitioning to an usher. His impromptu dance during the 2011-12 season was a hit with fans, leading to ongoing encouragement from the team’s management. He’s become a sensation, bringing joy to many with his performances, such as his pop-and-lock routine to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.” Despite initial concerns about overstepping his role, the Pistons supported his dancing, making him a celebrated part of the game day experience.
