16 of the most inspiring artist impersonators

From Michael Wackson to the Spice Moms, something's not quite right.

July 31, 2015

Some among us feel so connected to and inspired by our favourite artists that we want to do more than just buy albums stream their music and attend their overpriced concerts. Some of us aren’t content with mere fandom; we feel the need to become our idols, body and soul… or at least be mistaken for our idols once or twice by some drunks outside a Denny’s at 2 a.m.

Here are 16 of these heroes, in all their chameleon-esque glory. “Woah, why is this just a gallery full of famous people?” you’ll be saying, clutching your head and furrowing your brow in confusion. Such is the power of these talented impersonators.

In the interest of novelty, you won’t find the most over-impersonated artist of all among the images. We felt there was no need for a gallery full of Kenny Chesney imitators.
