TORONTO — Brett Nichols is likely the most popular student at Pitman High School now that a video of his Michael Jackson moves has gone viral.
The Turlock, California teen won his school’s talent show in early May with an amazing dance performance to Jackson’s 1983 hit “Billie Jean.”
The song, from the Thriller album, was released long before Nichols was born.
Since being posted to YouTube on Wednesday it has been viewed more than 2.3 million times.
MTV News declared Nichols “does Michael Jackson better than Michael Jackson’s hologram” — a reference to the “Slave to the Rhythm” performance on Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
