Michael Jackson

Teenage Impersonator

Strikes Again

6/3/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jackson Teenage Impersonator New VideoThe teenage Michael Jackson impersonator who set the Internet on fire with his "Billie Jean" dance routine is back again ... and this time he's been hit by ... he's been struck by ... a "Smooth Criminal."

Brett Nichols ... who's just 17 ... stole the show at his high school's talent show last month, and even caught the eye of the Jackson family, who flew him out to Las Vegas to catch a performance of Michael Jackson ONE.

Now Nichols tells TMZ he's working on a new video, "Smooth Criminal," and has plans to do "Thriller" at some point. In the video, you see Nichols rehearsing for his "SC" vid ... but he doesn't do the infamous "lean" like MJ did. He's going to need those special shoes.

Nichols' rep (yes, he has a rep) tells TMZ ... Nichols is hoping to parlay this fame into an acting career and he's already gotten a few casting opportunities.

Hopefully he won't get typecast.

Good for him, but the only Jackson we care about is PARIS Jackson. Paris Paris Paris, with her striking green eyes and lovely long legs. 5'9" with the body of a goddess... come on TMZ, hook a brother up with some new pictures!

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

If MJ were alive he'd be all over this kid. Haha, I'm kidding. He's about 8 years too old for the King of Pedos.

Not the Jackson family flew him out to Las Vegas, it was the Estate of Michael Jackson. The BEST and most beloved and imitated artist who continues to inspire the world always and forever. We love and miss you Michael forever.

A few years ago we got free tickets to see a Legends in Concert performance in Las Vegas. The kid should see if he can get hired on for such a review, bank his money wisely and take some online college classes in a profession or trade so in 15 or so years when he's finished he can live well and still have a source of income that he enjoys.

Okay this is a little ridiculous now.. can't anyone be original and invent their own dance moves? I'm a little tired of seeing the same three dance moves recycled over... and over... and over...

Posers are boring.

That one kinda sucked. Invest in a radio dude. Couldn't hear the music, maybe that's why it sucked.

The MJ Estate invited this kid to Las Vegas NOT the Jackson family. The Jackson family only spends money on themselves.

Wow ...    

Personally I wish this guy the best. He has skills and talent, frankly far more deserving of being in the entertainment industry than those "reality stars".
