WATCH: Teenager does great rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.”

The teen who went viral this week for nailing Michael Jackson’s now-iconic “Billie Jean” choreography from the “Motown 25” special has caught the attention of the late singer’s estate.

The executors were so impressed by 17-year-old Brett Nichols, who performed the dance at his high school talent show in Turlock, Calif., that they invited him to attend MJ’s Cirque du Soleil’ show s in Las Vegas.

After video of Brett was posted on YouTube views went from around 7,000 to over six million hits.

The executors of Jackson’s estate told TMZ 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.”
