Shy teen shuffles out for talent show – has crowd on their feet cheering within seconds

Michael Jackson is remembered for a lot of things, but above all else it was his talent as a performer that truly marks his legacy.

His singing ability, his revolutionary dance moves … both contributed to his rise to superstardom and the well-deserved nickname of “The King of Pop”.

Jackson showcased many iconic looks over the years, with each outfit giving a nod to his signature style. We all remember the red and black leather jacket from the “Thriller” video, and how about the sharp black and white ensemble from “Billie Jean”?

Of course, these days people dressing up as Michael Jackson for fancy-dress parties and the like is a common trend, but it takes someone truly special to impersonate his talent to an acceptable standard. One teen has shown that not only can he wear the suit, but he can dance like “The King of Pop” …
