California teen’s Michael Jackson performance earns him an invite to Las Vegas

Young MJ

Brett Nichols's performance of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" at a Turlock, Calif., high school talent show got the attention of Jackson's estate, which invited the teen and his family to come to Las Vegas for a performance of "Michael Jackson One" at Mandalay Bay, according to TMZ.

"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 TV station KXTV, News 10.
