Proud mum Carol Parsons said Micky and his band mates had their suits specially made for the premiere event.
She said: "He was so ecstatic about going – he loves films and he always wanted to be a film director when he was younger.
"He must have been in his element at the event and he looked really smart. He has never had the chance to wear anything like that before because he missed out on his school prom.
"They all scrubbed up well, and I saw on Facebook they had been shaving before the event – I didn't even know Michael had facial hair!"
Carol said she was "ecstatic" with District3's performance last week at the live shows.
"Michael kept up his energy and really gave it his all," she said.
"He pronounced his 'b' in Beggin'perfectly pushing the sound out – it must have been so difficult whilst dancing. I wanted to go up on stage and give them all a big hug.
"On the night, I was the one screaming 'District3' behind Gary Barlow!"
