If you are looking for a good show to put on, getting quality entertainment can be tricky. Going with a good impersonator can be a good bet, but there are only a few that are really the best at a certain performer. Sergio Cortes has stepped up the level of Michael Jackson impersonators, and delivers a top quality show in many venues all over the world.
Sergio Cortes comes from Barcelona, Spain, where he grew up a fan of the legendary performer’s style. Unquestionably, Michael Jackson made his mark as a thrilling performer, and no greater signature move represents his act better than his moonwalk dance steps. A series of steps that looks forwards, yet moves the performer backwards, it has been performed going back to the 30s with Cab Calloway. Millions all over the world for generations have mimicked Jackson’s moves. And when Cortes was a young sixth grader in Barcelona, he began to see that he had the natural feel for the steps Jackson had debuted on March 25, 1983 during a live performance of the Billie Jean song.
Other interpreters of Jackson have included performers as well known as Michael Bublé, yet many others have failed to provide the full Michael Jackson impersonation successfully. A South Asian act called Tigerstyle was able to wow audiences for awhile, emphasizing the song and dance steps to “Bille Jean.”
Cortes, who was born in 1971, became well known for looking like Jackson taken when he was a teenager. The photos taken by a local reporter assured Cortes employment as a Jackson impersonator for years to come.
Cortes’ current act includes many of the best features of the show that Jackson would deliver with, and many followers agree that Cortes and Jackson are practically indistinguishable in looks, especially from the Thriller album age of Michael Jackson.
His work has been appreciated by fans especially in Brazil and South America, and many tout Cortes as the best Michael Jackson impersonator in history. His current show includes musicians, vocals and dancers. His current project, “Human Nature Live Show” is being performed in Italy, and features a live two-hour performance.
