When the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, passed away on June 25, 2009, people all over the world were shocked.

Michael Jackson was not only an incredible singer, songwriter, and dancer, he was also a cultural icon. He contributed heavily to the music business, and also had an influence on fashion and the entire entertainment industry.

When he died, fans everywhere went into mourning. Web traffic went into overload, and many websites crashed as soon as news broke of Michael Jackson’s death.

Everyone assumed they’d never see the pop star’s face grace the screen again — but they were wrong.

A few days ago, a young woman named Lourdes Zavaleta posted a photo of her “boyfriend” on Twitter, and she was immediately inundated with comments from people who were convinced her beau looked exactly like the late pop star.

In fact, the man is not dating Lourdes, and is actually Sergio Cortès, a Michael Jackson impersonator. Do you see the resemblance?

On September 18, 2017, Lourdes Zavaleta posted the above photo on Twitter.

She wrote, “y’all my man is so cute, look at the selfie he just sent me.”

Although she later explained that the man is not her boyfriend (she didn’t even know him, and just found his photo online), the tweet went viral. Within just a few days, the post had almost 12,000 likes and over 3,300 retweets.

People were blown away by how much the man looks like the late, great Michael Jackson.

With the incredible bone structure, strong eyebrows, and wavy hair, he really is the pop star’s doppelgänger.

People immediately started commenting with hilarious Michael Jackson song references.

One person wrote, “Ask him if he ever found out if Annie was ok.”

It turns out that Lourdes’ “boyfriend” is actually Sergio Cortès, a professional Michael Jackson impersonator.

Sergio is a performer who says his show is “much more than a tribute to Michael Jackson.”

Sergio’s performances are truly inspired by the King of Pop — from song and dance to stage presence, he really channels Michael Jackson in everything he does.

And of course, he performs classics like “Thriller,” “Man in the Mirror,” and “Smooth Criminal.”

Sergio is a Spanish entertainer who is currently on tour in South America.

Lourdes originally posted the photo as a joke for her friends, so she was stunned when it started blowing up.

Although Lourdes feels a little bad that she fooled people into thinking Sergio was her boyfriend, she’s glad she helped him get more exposure.

And the best part of this? It shows just how much people still love Michael Jackson.
