Michael Jackson’s estate has invited 17-year-old Brett Nichols to Las Vegas for a show after video of his impressive high school talent show performance went viral, TMZ reports.
Video of Nichols’ amazing MJ routine at a school talent show – complete with the moonwalk and more of the late star’s signature moves – exploded across the Internet this week, making him an overnight viral sensation.
A representative with the Jackson estate told TMZ that they were so impressed with the performance that they sent him a package that included two CDs and invitation for him and his family to see a performance of Michael Jackson ONE in Vegas.

The video now has over six million views.
It should come as now surprise that Nichols won the Pitman high school talent show. He’s only been practicing that routine for about a decade.
“I guess people still miss him, it’s been five years (since his death). The younger generation appreciates the work, and not only does someone care, but someone cared to put in the time,” Nichols told News 10.
Reporters interviewed Democrat Steven Brooks after his arrest in January for threatening to shoot Nevada Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
Steven went to the interview… shirtless.
This weekend Steven was arrested again after wrestling with cops and trying to take their guns.
Police on Sunday again have arrested embattled Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks, D-North Las Vegas, this time after a report that he allegedly attacked a family member.
Officers arrived at Brooks’ home around 12:30 a.m. at 6007 Turtle River Avenue to find that he was “agitated and refused to obey officers’ commands,” Metro Police said.
As officers tried to take him into custody, police said, Brooks fought them. In a news release, Metro said the 40-year-old “at one point attempted to secure one of the officers’ weapons.”
Police arrested the Las Vegas resident on counts of obstructing police and domestic battery.
A court hearing for Brooks scheduled for Monday morning was continued.
Steven ought to go far in the party.
And still no smart-assed Tweets from David Frum mocking the idea that many Americans use guns in self defense?
A 72-year-old homeowner immediately retrieved his handgun when he heard several home intruders attempting to gain entry to his Las Vegas residence early Monday morning. And when the criminals entered his bedroom, he opened fire, killing one of the suspects and sending the rest fleeing, KLAS-TV reports.
“Several intruders, had gotten into the home, entered his bedroom and he fired at least one shot, and they fled,” Metro Police Officer Bill Cassell said. “It is unusual, first of all, to have multiple people burglarizing a residence, especially when they are carrying weapons.”
When police eventually arrived at the Las Vegas home, they found one of the intruders trying to escape in a car. The car hit a patrol car and then the suspect attempted to flee on foot, however, police were able to take the man into custody.
A second suspect, described as a Latin male, was last seen running from the neighborhood where the attempted robbery took place. He remains at large. Police found a third male, armed with a handgun, dead in the homeowner’s backyard. The cause of death was determined to be a gunshot wound.
Glad this did not happen in David Frum’s America
