The Internet was left aghast last week by a viral video of a high school student’s amazing dance to Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” The performer behind the buzzworthy clip, Brett Nichols, joined HuffPost Live on Friday to discuss all the fanfare, and the fantastic gift he got from the estate of Michael Jackson himself.
After his video was shared millions of times online, Nichols received a package containing two copies of Jackson’s new posthumous album “Xscape” and an invitation to attend the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas on the King of Pop’s birthday.
Nichols, a junior at Pitman High School in Turlock, Calif., has been dancing for nine years, but video of this one performance racked up 15 million views on YouTube in about a week. Nichols shared with HuffPost Live’s Josh Zepps how exactly he first realized he was becoming an online sensation.
