VIDEO: Teen's Michael Jackson Talent Show Performance Goes Viral!
Below, check out 17-year-old Brett Nicols' rendition of Michael Jackson's 1983 hit 'Billie Jean', which he performed at Pitman High School's talent show last week in Turlock California. The video of the performance has gone viral on YouTube, racking up nearly 2 million views in a single day.
During the performance, Nichols channels Jackson's smooth dance moves, signature leg bends and even the iconic moonwalk.
Nichols told News10 that old Jackson Youtube videos inspired him to learn the dance steps and led him to the exciting performance in front of his classmates. "This is something that really inspires me, and then it was later I thought, 'Why isn't this something I can't do?'"
