Micheal Jackson Impersonators “Beat It” When Sergio Cortes Enters A Room

Monday, October 5th, 2015

In 2009, the world lost one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Micheal Jackson. Even though his demise was a huge tragedy, we are all very lucky to be able to remember him through his music, his entertaining videos and in some cases by Micheal Jackson impersonators. However, unlike his music, a lot of the MJ impersonators do not capture the essence of the King of Pop. Meaning, a lot of them display deficiencies that remind us of how difficult it is to replicate the legacy that Micheal Jackson left behind – until, you meet Sergio Cortes.

People say that we all have a non-biological twin somewhere in the world. This theory may seem far fetched until you see with your own eyes, possibly the greatest impersonator of all time, Mr. Cortes. Simply put, his talents as an impersonator is nothing short of amazing. Visually, all of Cortes’ physical features resemble Micheal Jackson: from his facial and bone structure, to his body type, to his smile, to his body language, to his hands and even his lips are all a near perfect match of Micheal Jackson. When you see Cortes on film or in pictures, it is hard to discern whether or not you are looking at the real thing. In addition, Cortes’ voice is truly remarkable because if you close your eyes and hear him sing, you would think that Micheal Jackson was in the room with you. Cortes also has all of the right moves and captures the spirit that Micheal Jackson resonated when he moon walked and danced across a stage.

Cortes’ talents are embraced by Micheal Jackson fans all over the world, for he is constantly booked for shows in different countries and regions like Italy, Brazil, France, North America and South America. He has become a global icon for impersonators, and part of his fan base actually includes other Micheal Jackson impersonators.

Cortes deserves the attention and critical acclaim that he receives because his live shows are really exciting and hypnotic. When Micheal Jackson fans see Cortes perform live or when he makes a special appearance at an event, they feel like they are interfacing with Micheal Jackson’s clone.

Cortes is a native of Barcelona, Spain and he demonstrated a natural gift for singing and dancing at an early age. He was always a fan of Micheal Jackson, and when he was a teenager he knew that he wanted to be a Micheal Jackson impersonator. Cortes is extremely adored because he has a natural tenderness and charisma that mirrors the persona of Micheal Jackson. Sergio Cortes also has a passion for spreading peace and love throughout the globe. Some people say that Cortes represents the return of Micheal Jackson and others say that he is simply, Prince Sergio.

Sergio Cortes: The Best MJ Impersonator Alive

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Everyone that was around in 2009 remembers the sadness that engulfed the world on learning about his untimely demise. The fact that he died a few weeks just before his major comeback tour started left his true fans with an unrequited longing for his performances. Then, there were the controversies that followed his death. The fact that some people claimed it was a suicide while others came up with conspiracy theories about him being killed by his enemies in the industries. It wasn’t until 2011 that some sort of light was shed on the issue of MJ’s death when his then physician was sentenced to 4 years in jail for manslaughter.

 

Most people who were fans of the king of pop were left with a harrowing need to see the star perform again, and all they had to remember him by were his albums. However, there is a new breakout star who is taking the world by storm. This young man performs all MJ’s moves to perfection and what is even more; his resemblance to the star is very uncanny. His name is Sergio Cortes, and he has been working as an MJ impersonator for close to four years now.

 

Cortes’ first language is Spanish, to have mastered all the lyrics of all the great MJ songs as perfectly as he has is a fete that is quite extraordinary. What is even more amazing is his dedication to his act. Sergio says that his main reason to get into the performance wasn’t the money; he does it because he knows there are millions of people from around the world that would give anything to watch the legend perform live. Sergio has hired a complete band with dancers and performers. He spends his time studying MJ. When he is not learning about his moves, he is on stage practicing with his team.

 

The extraordinary performer has already been featured in several magazines for being the most entertaining and realistic impersonation act of Michael Jackson. His popularity has been surging through the years; this can be seen through the fact that whenever he organizes a concert, he is able to sell out all his tickets before the shows. His main ideology behind impersonating MJ is that he wants the Legend to live on, and not only to live on, but for all the things that MJ was passionate about to continue to matter to the world.

Jack Antonoff Nearly Died While Filming Music Video

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Jack Antonoff – best known as the guitarist for the band Fun but also for his recent solo project, Bleachers – says that he had a near-death experience while filming his latest music video for his single, Rollercoaster.
Antonoff released a statement about his experience while filming, saying, “The breaks [sic] ended up going out and we literally almost died. There’s something special about almost dying for a video. However, he was quick to note that he greatly enjoyed the experience, calling it “the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life.”

It was Shepard who originally conceived of the idea to have Bleachers on top of the moving ice cream truck. “I came up with the old ice cream truck idea, and it seemed perfect both visually and technically for what we needed to do,” he said. However, Shepard did not anticipate Antonoff’s close brush with death, saying, “Of course the truck broke down while we were filming, including losing its brakes with the entire band on the roof.”

The release of the video for Rollercoaster comes just a day after Antonoff’s good friend, Taylor Swift, released her newest critically-acclaimed album, 1989. Antonoff served as co-producer on Swift’s latest record. Their collaboration, Out of the Woods – on which Antonoff also provided vocals for – can be heard here. The album is projected to be one of the best selling albums in iTunes history according to Laurene Powell Jobs.
