    After watching one impersonator show I felt scarred for life lol.

    It was literally a bad dream that came true for me!

    I had to watch several Michael concert videos afterwards to purge the impersonator out of my system.

    So hell NO to impersonators, but tribute shows that don't involve impersonators are totally fine

    Yes, I think it was the makeup combined with the cheap looking knock-off outfits, backup dancers and stage effects.

    My mother surprised me with front row tickets Or I never would have gone.

    He also impersonated Michael when he was a kid. Not as little as when he did Elvis, but when he was older

    I actually used to hate impersonators as well but, after Michael died, I gave them a second chance. Now I LOVE them. Well, at least the smaller more amateur ones. I don't know much about the Navis and ECas' of the world but... yeah anyhow... the reason is because I realized that most of the really good ones-- They are fans just like us . My favorites are Jeffery Perez and WHO's BAD (who has been around for 12 years and got Michaels approval).

    How about stating some names of the Impersonators instead of taking pot shots. Some must be very good.

    Yes, I do agree! There are some who I think are really, really good! I have seen them on you tube, and I'm sorry, but I have my favorites.

    I used to love Impersonators too but now they scare the life out of me too lol

    I used to go to Fan events just to see them perform and meet them afterwards. They were the 'next best thing' to Michael as I never got the chance to 'HUG' MJ but I did 'hug' a lot of Lookalikes lol

    Then, the last show I attended a few years ago It scared the crap out of me too lol.
    Okay, It was PhillyT and he was dressed like Michael in 'This is it' doing Earth song. I still remember my poor heart almost stopped there. The most scary thing is he even 'talks' like Michael and that was just TOO MUCH really!

    It's just too 'confrontational' to see a lookalike on stage remembering our Michael was 'murdered'

    I guess if it has such an 'affect' on you, he must be good hey! If your mind is 'fooled' somehow

    Tossing out names (except if only praise) would not be the most 'sensitive' thing to do.. Most impersonators weave through various fan forums.

Having a job of impersonating someone on stage because of the love you have for someone is NOT the same as someone that starts to have a hard time separating himself/herself with the artist..
    yeah it's that michael trapson guy right? At first i thought he was cool with his version of billie jean [and i dab], it made me laugh but then I saw him commenting on old video clips as if he was MJ. That's just taking it way too far imo.

    ^ Nice response after me saying it's not the most sensitive thing to bring up names.. I guess maybe I should not have given an example! lol... Yeah it went too far with that! that's all I'll say for now

    As someone who is, for the most part, a MJ tribute artist, I don't mind them.

    Not a fan of 'impersonators', though. Ones who are over the top & wear wigs/makeup and even go as far as to get plastic surgery, but ones who genuinely like paying tribute to him by going around the world 'as him' I admire. It keeps his legacy alive in a sense, so I don't mind.

    I personally don't go too far. I do own several replicas & outfits - I have a wig, but that's for certain reasons as I like to go to conventions & events. I will never wear makeup.

    First of all, I've met Michael Trapson and he's a cool dude. Really sweet and down to earth. And yeah... he's a bigger fan than most people would guess. Why else would he or any other tribute artist devote the time to doing what they do?

    I really think they are misunderstood. Oh, and since it's on topic, I just wrote a post about why every MJ fan should see Who's Bad at least once. http://www.mjfangirl.com/2017/01/5-r...bute-band.html

    This thread inspired it

    When a fan cannot separate (impersonator or not) the love for Michael and his/her own identity is odd to me! sad also..
