"Dancing Machine" is a song recorded by American R&B outfit the Jackson 5, and was the title track of their 1974 album. The song was originally recorded for the group's 1973 album G.I.T.: Get It Together and was released as a remix for a response to the success of the single. It was the group's first US Top Ten hit since 1971's "Sugar Daddy". "Dancing Machine" brought the Jackson 5 their second Grammy Award nomination in 1975 for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, losing to Rufus and Chaka Khan's "Tell Me Something Good".

"Dancing Machine" hit #1 in Cash Box and reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, behind The Streak by Ray Stevens.[2] In addition, it hit #1 on the R&B charts.[3] Billboard ranked it as the No. 5 song for 1974.[4]

The song, which reportedly sold over three million copies,[5] popularized the physically complicated Robot dance technique, devised by Charles Washington in the late 1960s. Michael Jackson first performed the dance on television while singing "Dancing Machine" with the Jackson 5 on an episode of Soul Train.
