Michael Jackson, King of Pop, is remembered even a decade after his death and the legend’s music, energy, creativity will forever live on. Having given some classic songs such as Beat It, Billie Jean, Smooth Criminal, and numerous others, he was hands down one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Michael Jackson died in 2009, however, a look-alike of his, named Sergio Cortes, has taken social media by storm. His posts and video clips on Instagram has left people blown by the uncanny resemblance.
Sergio Cortes is a tribute act performer from Spain, and he sings and performs just like him. It was a few months ago that his presence on social media created a frenzy after people noticed the eerie similarities between him and Michael Jackson. So much so, that the fans even demanded he undergo a DNA test, just to prove that he isn’t actually MJ. Crazy, right? But you’d have to go through his pictures to find out what the fuss really is about. Well, now Sergio has shared another picture of his 18-year-old self, and it is sure to make you look twice.
Sharing the picture, Sergio wrote on his Instagram story, “This is me in 1989, with 18 years old.” We also came across a few pictures of Michael Jackson himself from the same year- 1989, and the two pictures will surely make you do a double-take. Check them out below:
