EXCLUSIVE17-year-old Michael Jackson fan Brett Nichols didn't just win his school's talent show with his MJ routine ... he caught the eye of MJ's estate ... who have invited the kid to Las Vegas for a show ... TMZ has learned.
A rep for the Jackson estate tells TMZ ... the executors saw Nichols' impressive performance and were blown away ... so they put together a package to send to Nichols to show how much they liked his act.
The rep says they sent Nichols the new MJ album "Xscape" (no iTunes cards?) and an invitation for Brett and his family (mom, dad and sister) to all attend a performance of Michael Jackson ONE in Las Vegas.
We're told they contacted Nichols' principal, who in turn told Nichols and his family this afternoon ... who were predictably beyond excited.
Much better than some stupid trophy.
