The Life of Michael Jackson ImpersonatorsЖизнь имперсонаторов Майкла

Изображение
Above: J. Michael Lucas, impersonator, Las Vegas, 2012. When Turner met Lucas, he was performing in Harrah’s “Legends in Concert” show in Las Vegas. He has a massive fan base and is unusual in that he sings and dances, as many of the MJs are only dancers. He has aspirations to be a singer and dancer in his own right.

———

Millions of Michael Jackson fans can’t be wrong: Getting close to the next best thing can induce crazed excitement. This is one of the many things Lorena Turner learned while working on The Michael Jacksons, her portrait series of Michael Jackson lookalikes, impersonators, and tribute artists.

Turner started working on the project shortly after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 after she traveled to Harlem and was captivated by all of the Michael Jackson performers in attendance for his memorial. She was also struck by the crowd’s intense reaction to them; the mere presence of a facsimile elicited worshipful cries, screams, and hysteria.

Turner began the project soon after her Harlem visit by delving into the online world of Michael Jacksons. She placed an ad on Craigslist, where MJs often look for work, and searched on Facebook and GigSalad. She also discovered a huge MJ subculture in which the MJs are exceptionally supportive of one another. Rather than divided by competitiveness that one might naturally expect, they are instead united by their unabiding love for Jackson.

Above: Jovan Rameau, impersonator, Hollywood, Calif., 2010. Rameau, who has traveled worldwide as Michael Jackson, makes $400 to $500 a day working on Hollywood Boulevard, which he does three days a week. Turner says, “He works to embody Michael Jackson’s demeanor—someone who is light in spirit with a physical fluidity.” Turner says when she met him, “he was trying to save money to put on an autobiographical play about his life as a Haitian immigrant and MJ lookalike.”

—————

Turner said the subjects she photographed come from diverse backgrounds. “There’s Jen Amerson, a single mother of two in a small town in South Carolina, who used to be a factory worker,” Turned mentioned. “She’s Caucasian and performs for African American audiences. There’s also a guy who used to be homeless and would go between Hollywood and Las Vegas performing on the streets, purely out of his love for Michael Jackson… They all come from different backgrounds, of course, but they are all tied together in this one great affection.”

She performs primarily for African-American families at birthday parties and local events. During the ‘MJ season,’ AKA the summer months, she can make enough to take care of her family.”

Startling Shots Of A Variety Of MJ Impersonators

Изображение
Photo Credit: Lorena Turner

It’s been almost five years since Michael Jackson passed away. The night before his Los Angeles memorial, in April 2009, photographer Lorena Turner saw three performers on Hollywood Boulevard, all masquerading as different versions of the King of Pop.

“It became clear to me that these people weren’t so much honoring Michael Jackson as much as they were creating a hybrid identity through their representation of him,” she tells Co.Design. “In other words, they were performing a convergence of their own identity with Michael Jackson.” Intrigued, Turner kept photographing the performers in L.A. and New York, and then smaller towns across the country. This May, the collected portraits are being published in her book, The Michael Jacksons.

Jackson, perhaps more than any other musical performer, gets scholarly credit for breaking down racial barriers. As Turner points out, when Thriller aired he was the first black performer with a music video on MTV. Then of course, over the years he began to modify his physical appearance, until he barely looked like the young kid singing with his brothers and sisters in Jackson 5. Many thought he had abandoned his black heritage. But the impersonators photographed embrace almost every Jackson iteration–some taking painstaking care with makeup to recreate Jackson’s bizarre nose, or his stringy locks of hair. Some even blend different Jackson eras together, which makes Turner ask: “Where was [Jackson] in his career when they first saw him?

Sweeney Presents Ben Tribute Artist Live In Concert

Изображение


STARRING BEN & HIS INCREDIBLE LIVE BAND & DANCERS on Saturday 22nd February 2014 at the Kings Theatre Southsea

There will only ever be one Michael Jackson and though he is sadly missed his legacy will continue well into the future. He was the greatest entertainer, a creative genius and is a musical legend who will continue to inspire countless people across the world for generations to come.

Jackson Live in Concert sees long-time fan and hugely talented Ben recreate the Michael Jackson experience with a mesmerising, energetic and dynamic performance that captures the essence and magic of the “King of Pop” live on stage.

Ben says “From as far into my childhood as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with Michael Jackson. Everything about the King of Pop mesmerized and enchanted me. I used to spend hours pouring over album covers, photographs, interviews, videos and anything I could find that was about Michael. Even my 7th birthday party was Michael Jackson themed! I always loved to dance and began copying Michael’s signature moves as I dreamt of being a performer just like him”

Ben’s portrayal of Michael Jackson has to be the most vocally and visually accurate tribute to the King of Pop to have ever toured UK theatres. Ben is joined on the stage by his incredible live band and amazing dancers who work their way through all of MJs hits with impeccable precision. Ben’s got the look, the moonwalk and the voice and his renditions of Thriller, Beat it and Billie Jean are truly sensational.

This is it ! This is as real as it gets. Jackson Live in Concert is so much more than just a tribute show – this will be a performance and an event that audiences who witness it will remember forever.

Нижегородский Майкл Джексон: "У меня очень много поклонниц"
Двойник Джексона уже несколько лет живет в этом образе

Изображение

В последние месяцы нижегородцы все чаще стали замечать на улицах города человека, один в один похожего на Майкла Джексона. Портал ProGorodNN.ru разыскал двойника знаменитости, которым оказалсь 17-летний школьник Виталий Шорников.
"Я увлекаюсь творчеством Майкла Джексона с 10 лет. А как профессиональный двойник живу уже 2 года. Когда первый раз оделся, как Майкл, точно уже не помню. Сейчас постоянно в образе, то есть этот образ и есть я", - рассказывает Виталий Шорников, школьник из Нижнего Новгорода. Ему 17 лет, и почти половину своей жизни он ярый поклонник творчества Майкла Джексона.

Изображение

"На улицах, когда видят меня, в основном, все просят либо автограф, либо сфотографироваться. Я уже привык. Самый необычный случай был, когда я с неграми на Покровке пел песню "Bad". Это было очень весело. Мой образ очень сильно повлиял на мою жизнь, я часто стал появляться в телевизионных передачах, в газетах, начал выступать за границей. Постоянные интервью и внимание СМИ для меня уже не новость. У меня много поклонниц и фанаток, всем моим знакомым девушкам очень нравится мой образ, хотя в школе раньше все это воспринимали несерьезно, часто оскорбляли. Но сейчас уже все привыкли и даже гордятся тем, что у них есть друг Майкл Джексон".

Изображение

"Сейчас я выступаю на разных мероприятиях в своем образе, этим и зарабатываю. Я и пою и танцую. Но не пытаюсь повторить судьбу и жизнь Майкла Джексона, я живу своей жизнью. Я не пытаюсь заменить его. Его полностью повторить невозможно", - рассказывает Виталий.
Кстати, мы писали про то, что в нижегородском метро ездит двойник Путина. Ладно хоть не сам.

Throwback Thursday: Michael Jackson look-alikes rock their best '80s looks

Изображение
Michael Jackson look-alikes line up for a talent agency audition in Hollywood in June 1984. (Los Angeles Times / UCLA Library / June 19, 1984) By Laura E. Davis
February 13, 2014, 7:30 a.m.


"On June 19, 1984, 17-year-old Eric Evans donned a pair of "cooler-than-cool aviator sunglasses" and a sequined glove and strutted his stuff on stage.
Evans had been studying Michael Jackson since he was 2 years old, and on that day he was vying to be represented by Ron Smith's Celebrity Look-Alikes. He was one of seven people the agency chose during the West Hollywood audition. He joined two dozen other Jackson look-alikes selected from more than 300 applicants in a seven-city search.
In a story that ran in the June 20, 1984, edition of The Times, Evans' mother, Rita, called Jackson her son's "first love."
"He was so much in love with him, he grew up to look like him," she said. "Everyone has an idol to follow, and Michael is his."

Man in the Mirror: Meet Hawai‘i’s MJ Tribute Artist / Человек в зеркале: Встречайте гавайского исполнителя трибьютов МД


BY DAVID THOMPSON / PHOTOS: RAE HUO

Damian Brantley makes a surprisingly good living as a Michael Jackson tribute artist, performing in Legends in Concert’s Rock-a-Hula show at the Royal Hawaiian Center in Waikīkī. He appears alongside tribute artists doing Elvis Presley and Lady Gaga. And yes, they’re tribute artists—not impersonators—thank you.

➸There’s a difference between impersonators and tribute artists. Impersonators are mainly look-alikes, whereas tribute artists are utilizing all aspects—voice, looks, dancing, mannerisms—the whole package. But it’s not an exact replication of a performance. We have a little bit of space for our own interpretation in what we do. Impersonators try to mimic an artist so completely it can almost seem plastic sometimes.

➸Elvis will be an icon forever. But right now, at this moment in time, Michael Jackson is definitely more popular.

➸My makeup is intense. There’s eye-brow putty, surgical tape, spirit glue. We have all these little tricks to change the shape and structure of the nose, cheekbones and eyes.

➸Drag queens doing impersonations definitely have the best makeup skills. I learned the majority of my makeup skills from them. Their shading, their techniques are unparalleled. I am blown away seeing their transformations. They look more like the characters than anybody. Some of them even use modeled teeth that they snap in before the show. It changes their smiles. It’s amazing.

➸When people ask me what I do, I normally don’t tell them. I just say I’m in the music business, or I sing and whatnot. It’s hard to explain if you haven’t seen the show.

Изображение

➸I’m engaged to Lady Gaga—Jackie Wiatrowski, the Lady Gaga in the show. We met when she came out here to do the show. One thing led to another, and we’ve been together ever since. It’s a real “showmance.”

➸People want to know if Elvis is going to marry us. He’s not. That’s not our thing.

➸There’s no lip-syncing in our show. We have a live, five-piece band. I like to believe I have Michael’s voice down 85 percent, tone-wise. A lot of the illusion comes from your inflections, the way you pronounce things. That can be even more important than the tone.
