Appearing as Michael Jackson
Jalles Franca moved to the United States from Brazil at the age of 16, to fulfill his dreams as a professional dancer in Las Vegas. At the age of 21 he began a seven year residency as a performer, dancer and percussionist at Studio 54 Nightclub at the MGM Hotel & Casino.
A long time fan of the ‘King Of Pop,’ Michael Jackson, Jalles began imitating the star’s signature dance moves during his routines at Studio 54 and various other venues. Soon after the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late Superstar. Jalles has won numerous awards for “Best Michael Jackson Impersonator,” Best overall “look” and “Best Moonwalk.” In addition, December 2018 Franca was honored by the Las Vegas Walk of Stars with his own “Star” on Las Vegas Blvd, you can find it today in front of the Paris Hotel & Casino on the strip. He respects and loves Michael as well as his fans, and it means the world to him to keep the King Of Pop's legacy alive.
