Michael Jackson's high-school impersonator returns with new moves

Seventeen-year-old Brett Nichols rose to fame last month after a video of him dancing to "Billie Jean" at his high school talent show went viral. Now, Nichols is back with another dance, this time to Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal."

Nichols' "Billie Jean" dance has nearly 16 million views on YouTube, and he told Today.com that he's still in awe of his internet recognition. "This is something you only see on TV," he said. "It's incredible and tiring — it has its ups and downs. My parents were pretty speechless that I was getting so much attention for something I'd been doing for so long." Nichols has previously said he's been studying Jackson's dance moves for 10 years.
