Everyone loves Michael Jackson, which is why his death in 2009 left millions of fans heartbroken. His voice and his dancing were considered magical by the people who were captivated by his allure. In the case of Sergio Cortes, a Spanish man who was born in Barcelona, many recognize him for his talents when it comes to imitating Michael Jackson. For Sergio, listening to the songs of his idol is not enough, but he felt the need to take it to a whole new level by recreating Michael’s songs and dance numbers. Currently, Sergio has earned himself the title of the best Michael Jackson impersonator in the world.
Sergio began his career of impersonating Michael as early as his teenage years, but it was only when he rendered a tribute to Michael in Madrid that the spotlight truly focused on him. Normally, impersonators are seen as jokes and are hated by the fans, but Sergio’s case is completely different. The fans of the real King of Pop welcomed him wholeheartedly. The reason behind this is because Sergio is the spitting image of Michael Jackson. One look at him and you would think that either they are twins, or Michael rose from the grave to dance the “Thriller” one last time.
Everyone can have plastic surgery to look like anyone they choose, but what makes Sergio special is the fact that he looks like Michael, and he also sings and dances like him. Watching Sergio perform can really make a Michael Jackson fan believe that MJ himself is the one in front of them. The way he jerks his neck, and the way his feet sways during his performances looks exactly like how MJ does it, not to mention that his voice has an uncanny resemblance to Michael Jackson’s. Overall, Sergio has truly mastered every bit of MJ’s mannerisms on stage, both in dancing and in singing.
More than an impersonator, Sergio Cortes definitely is the reincarnation of Michael Jackson. This is true in the hearts of millions of fans of MJ, who were heartbroken at the news of his death but found comfort in Sergio’s impersonations of Michael. Yes, Michael Jackson was crowned as the King of Pop, and after his death it seemed that Sergio inherited the throne to continue MJ’s legacy as the second King of Pop. Over the years, Sergio has performed numerous MJ classics, such as “Thriller” or “Smooth Criminal, and everyone can count on Sergio Cortes recreating the Michael Jackson experience for every fan around the world to enjoy.
