Michael Jackson impersonators
About nineteen months ago I put up a post with a collection of the best Michael Jackson impersonators I’ve seen. Since then most of the videos have been taken down by their users.
Aside from the recent furore I’ve been a die-hard Jackson fan for the last twenty-five years and have listened to his music every day for pretty much the entire twenty-five years. Check my mp3 player in my car and you’ll find at least half a dozen songs on there plus another half dozen remixes. I’ve watched many many Michael Jackson impersonators. By far two of the best I’ve ever seen were some teenager who was performing at a highschool dance – the vid was on Youtube and the user removed it. The other one of course is Suleman Mirza who was on Britain’s Got Talent – his original performance blew me away.
Because the previous list got ruined by people removing their vids I decided to recreate it with different people.
Off the bat, this guy ‘Hafid’ is brilliant. If he used dress pants instead of jeans, had a fullsize fedora hat, and sharpened up his moves just ever so slightly he’d be close to the best.
Here he is in Times Square… even with crappy quality you can see he’s got the moves down!
This guy Ben Jackson would be awesome if he wasn’t so bloody tall.
The height is getting in his way – longer legs makes it harder to do the moves.
