Michael Jackson is alive according to conspiracy theorists who bizarrely think they have spotted the King of Pop in many guises thanks to these uncannily accurate lookalikes.

Many diehard fans have not been able to get over MJ’s untimely death and outrageous conspiracy theories that he faked his demise to get away from his chaotic life in the public eye have raged ever since.
These bonkers theories are occasionally sparked by the appearance of Michael Jackson lookalikes singing and dancing on social media.
Ahead of the 11th anniversary of his death next week, Daily Star Online has taken a look at some of the most convincing MJ impersonators spotted by fans over the years.
Jacko impersonator Sergio Cortes, seen in the video at the top of this page, looks so much like the late superstar that he claims he even worked as his double while he was still alive.
The Spanish lookalike has a massive Instagram following and while some accept he is a tribute act other fans are so convinced he is the real MJ they’ve begged him to get a DNA test.
In the clip, he promotes an upcoming gig in Thailand and says: “To all Michael Jackson fans, come and watch me perform at Hollywood Pattaya on December 23.
“I love you guys and I will see you there. I am Sergio Cortes and I will see you soon.”
‘MJ ALIVE’ CONSPIRACY
- MJ lookalike urged to get DNA test
- Fans beg singer to come to UK
- Jacko’s voice ‘heard on camera’
- MJ ‘speaks to ghost hunter’
He then puts his hands together and blows a kiss to the camera.
The lookalike has MJ’s curly black locks and a similar style of make-up and it’s enough to make fans question if he is Jacko back from the grave.
“Michael Jackson is alive again?” wrote one.
A second conspiracy theorist pondered: “Michael Jackson’s alive? But under another identity?”
The video even came to the attention of hip-hop artist Ludacris, who wrote: “Bruh. This Michael Jackson imposter from Thailand #nowthatsludicrous.”
Sergio has outright denied having plastic surgery to look like Michael Jackson, which only fuelled the conspiracy theory further.

Michael Jackson lookalike Paul Rizzo was filmed doing an impressive moonwalk in Sydney, Australia, in a TikTok video which quickly went viral when MJ fans couldn’t believe their own eyes.
Rocking his head and flicking his hands out, the dancer moonwalks on rough concrete in a friction-defying feat almost as good as Michael Jackson himself.
He adds some punchy hand moves in time to the beat.
The man with the smooth moves is wearing a bold red jacket typical of the showman as well as his iconic hat and the black-shoes-with-white-socks combo.
“Is that really Jackson?” asked a very confused-sounding fan.https://get-latest.convrse.media/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailystar.co.uk%2Fnews%2Fweird-news%2Fmichael-jackson-alive-conspiracy-lookalikes-22210395&cre=bottom&cip=33&view=web
“He was not dead? I do not understand anything,” said a second befuddled viewer.
“Hi Michael Jackson,” a third casually commented.

Chinese tribute artist Wang Jie – otherwise known as Jackson Wang – is such a good singer and Michael Jackson impersonator that some fans reckon he is a “clone”.
In footage that left conspiracy theorists boggled, the lookalike belts out “Beat it” on stage while performing at one of his concerts.
The snazzily-dressed star is wearing a red leather jacket and black trousers and has his hair worn long and curly just like Jacko did in his “Dangerous” era.https://2729176174e6f688e57c0ce46b9ceacd.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
Strutting his stuff and punching the air, the tribute performer sings the chorus of one of MJ’s most famous hits with another performer in front of a screaming crowd.
Commenting on the clip, a confused fan said the lookalike had the same “forehead and nose” as Michael Jackson.
Another viewer on Twitter needed no more evidence and simply claimed: “This is Michael Jackson.”RELATED ARTICLESCriminal named Michael Jackson on the run after escaping from prison on Staffordshire borderMan on hospital bed sends internet into meltdown as he turns out to be a cakeDog looks after injured friend hit by car all night until help finally arrives
