Michael Jackson Estate Executors Invite Teen Impersonator To Las Vegas

The executors of Michael Jackson's estate were so impressed by a teen fan's uncanny impersonation of the late superstar, they invited him to attend a performance of Cirque du Soleil's King of Pop-themed show in Las Vegas.

Brett Nichols, 17, recently made headlines when a video of him dancing to Jackson's hit Billie Jean at his high school talent show in Turlock, California went viral.

After it was posted on YouTube.com, views went from around 7,000 to 170,000 in just one day, and as of Thursday (22May14), it had garnered over six million hits.

Among the viewers of the video were the executors of Jackson's estate, and they tell Tmz.com that they sent Nichols two albums as well as an invitation for the teen and his family to attend a performance of Michael Jackson One, the stage show based on Jackson's hit songs.

Nichols, who has spent 10 years perfecting his moves, tells local station News 10 that Jackson's legacy has helped boost the video to viral status, explaining, "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."
