Almost one year after the death of music legend Michael Jackson, his spirit is living on in a 4-year-old Chinese boy. His name is Xiao Bao(小宝). And right now he's moonwalking and dancing his way to international super stardom.

This pint-sized Michael Jackson impersonator is proving he's a real "thriller."

Moonwalking across the stage. And moving to the music just like MJ used to do.

Xiao Bao is an awesome talent. He's got the dance moves and the look to boot.

He has dozens of tailor-made suits, hats and shirts, plus his own professional trainer.

Jackson impersonator Xiao Bao said, "Even before I was born I would listen to music and dance in my Mum's stomach."

Xiao Bao was born prematurely. Doctors suggested moving his limbs to music would help build his weak muscles.

So, at the age of two he proved, "this is it."

Bian Aiqing, Xiao Bao's mother, said, "When he was young, we just started playing music to him and he started moving around like this. But, we didn't think that he had such a strong feeling for music. When he was just a couple of months old we would let him listen to music and he would immediately stop crying and calm down."

XIAO BAO'S MOTHER says it wasn't long before her son's interest turned into a real passion with the family spending up to 20,000 yuan a month on training and outfits.

Xiao Bao has already taken his first steps to becoming an international superstar. He's already appeared on popular US TV talk show 'Ellen' and has also performed at the Shanghai World Expo.

Xiao Bao's father Wang Xiaojun, who's an IT worker, has proved to his son "you are not alone" on whether you go professional or not.

Wang Xiaojun maintains his son is happiest when he's dancing.
