Not only is Michael Jackson's newest album #1 on the charts this week, his legend lives on in one extremely talented high school student.

Brett Nichols, a junior at John H. Pitman High School in Turlock, California, performed a dance to "Billie Jean" at his school's talent show last Friday -- and it needs to be seen to be believed. (Watch it here!) He pulled off all of Jackson's signature moves, including a truly impressive moonwalk.

"I am indeed a huge Michael Jackson fan, I've listened to him as long as I can remember," Brett tells the Good News blog.

The 17-year-old senior says he's never had a dance lesson, but has been practicing his Michael Jackson moves for the past nine years. Only a few friends have seen what he can do, and they convinced him to perform in the school's talent show.

In the video, Brett's classmates can be seen going crazy for his performance -- especially when he effortlessly does the moonwalk. "I could not hear the music after I moved backwards," he says, recalling the screaming crowd.

Obviously, Brett won the talent show. He didn't win money or a trophy, but something much more useful for a teenage boy. "I won the hearts of a lot of girls."
