Jalles Franca, star of the hit Las Vegas tribute show MJ Live! at the Stratosphere, has been a Michael Jackson tribute artist in Las Vegas for nearly 9 years. Currently performing locally and touring internationally as MJ The Legend, across the United States and around the world, he is the first and only tribute artist ever to perform at the legendary Madison Square Garden in NYC. MJ The Legend and his dancers are dedicated to the accuracy of the King Of Pop's iconic looks and signature dance moves, covering 14 of the greatest hits including Beat It, Billie Jean, Thriller and Man In the Mirror.
This gentleman is gentle and classy. What a surprise to it was to see that he was "normal" and a true artist. His dancing and moves are spectacular. But his manner and professionalism before and after stage is what makes him special. He is the best i have ever seen in a MJ impersonation.
As the venue manager of Hacienda Palomino, aka Thriller Villa, the former residence of Michael Jackson in Las Vegas, I went through many MJ performers before finding the right professional.
Jalles Franca and his crew are truly professionals who don't have a problem dealing with the demanding and often crazy schedules and offbeat venues of Las Vegas. They spare no expense to make sure their act is the ultimate. Jalles has brought down the house at Thriller Villa, and is the preferred performer, not only because of his stage ability, but because I find him to be a classy, trustworthy person with whom it is a pleasure to do business.
Jalles Franca is the best MJ impersonator!!! Blessed with superb dancing skills, good looks and nice attitude --(very accommodating to the crowd and to his fans)-- You will be truly entertained!! Definitely a crowd pleaser!!! Very worth having him in our College Grand Reunion Event as our surprise closing guest performer!!! I highly recommend him to any private function/event or show!!! 5 STARS for you Jalles!!!!
This was by far the best show I went to in Vegas.i felt like I was watching the legend himself ..wow !!iam definately doing this show next time.this guy is sooooooo great
I was getting married and wanted to give my soon to be wife a big surprise at our wedding reception. I wasn't sure what to do...she was a big Michael Jackson fan....so I thought hmmmm....I wonder if I can find a good Michael Jackson impersonator. Being the huge Michael Jackson fan she is, I knew he had to be the best...without question, MJ The Legend is the best! Since he is the star of the Vegas show MJ Live at the Stratosphere, I knew he would be good, but I had no idea how good he really is. He completely made the night. He brought so much energy to the reception. He is keeping the legendary King of Pop alive and doing it in the best possible way. Many of our wedding guests have told me it was the best wedding they have ever been to. My goal of the night was to leave my bride "Speechless". Because of MJ The Legend, I was able to do that. My wife will never forget that night.... none of us will ever forget that night! A very heartfelt thank you!
My husband and I was celebrating our 20yr anniversary and He made it even more special. His personality was real. He was attentive to the audiance and made everyone feel special. His talents are beyond perfection. Has MJ done to a tee. Thank you for a performance we will never forget. My husband and I still talk about it every time a MJ song comes on. Keep up the awesome work.
One of the best shows to go to when in Vegas, it's not just another tribute concert.
Jalles the performer made sure everybody had a great time, he's a real entertainer! We enjoyed the show from beginning to the end, hearing all those big MJ's songs live.
Next time in Vegas I will attend again for sure!!
Disbelief, shock, and utterly memorized. This is how I would describe my emotions watching Jalles Franca's stunning performance at MJ Live. I knew Michael Jackson was no longer alive and that I had missed my opportunity to see him in concert, but when Jalles stepped out on stage and began to sing and dance, I couldn't believe what I was seeing!! Jalles is an incredible performer, mimicking Michael Jackson's looks, singing, dance steps and mannerisms to absolute perfection. He captivated me and had me fully believing Michael was on stage. Afterwards I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Jalles during a photo and autograph session. I was very impressed as he truly appreciates and cares about his fans, taking time to talk with everyone. I have become a huge fan and can't wait for my next opportunity to see Jalles perform again. This is a performance NOT TO BE MISSED if you are a Michael Jackson Fan.
There so SO many things to say about this talented young man as being the BEST MJ impersonator I don't know where to begin!
1. I had the pleasure to meet Jalles Franca 2 years ago at my first MJLive Concert in Las Vegas and was hooked from the very first moment he stepped out on stage! His dance, his moves, his actions, his singing, his looks, are so like Michael Jackson It's simply unbelievable!! You don't want to take your eyes off him while he's performing! I now make it a point to see him every year!
2. You will fall in love with him as the performer and the man the very first time you see him just as I did.
3. He makes everyone feel like they ARE at a Michael Jackson concert.
4. Michael Jackson is smiling down on him for sure!
5. He is the only entertainer I've see that 'interacts' with his audience both young and old "during" his performance!
6. He always says how blessed he is to be able to follow his "Dream", But WE are also blessed because thru Jalles he is keeping MJ's music alive!
7. This talented young man is professional in every way, and yet, gracious enough to stick around after his shows until each and every person gets a chance for photo opts and autographs.
8. I've never seen an impersonator look SO much like who they are impersonating as Jalles Franca. You won't believe your eyes!
9. He goes by MJ The Legend, and that is putting it mildly! He IS the BEST MJ tribute performer I've ever seen! You just want to wrap him up and take him home with you! But then, that would be too selfish since so many others need to see this talented man perform!!
10. I can't say enough about this talented man!
The first time my husband and I saw MJ the Legend, we were staying in Vegas. We stopped into a local business in the Vegas area, and purchased tickets for his show on a whim. I will be the first to say, it was worth every single penny we spent!
Jalles Franca accuratly, and genuinely captivates the legend of Michael Jackson. I was so impressed with how dead on his dance moves, mannerisms, and singing was. Jalles does a fantastic job in capturing the audiences attention, and keeping the audeince drawn in. The array of costumes is amazing as well. If you were never able to see Michael live in concert while he was living, MJ the Legend is literally the next best thing.
Jalles Franca also appreciates every single fan that comes to one of his shows. He takes the time to get to know those who came to the show, and you can also take home an amazing momento from your visit. After the show, you have the opportunity to take a picture with Jalles, and then have the opprotunity to get it signed by Jalles himself.
My husband and I have been to the show several times, and it is worth your time, energy, and money.
I am a huge fan of Jalles Franca (MJtheLegend_) . I have seen him perform numerous times in MJ Live at the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino. Every time he performs he invokes an emotional response from the audience. I love watching the crowds' reaction to him because some get so excited they start crying due to already being a huge fan of Michael Jackson and remembering his amazing performances and how Jalles Franca flawlessly imitates MJ's every move such as dancing, personality, facial expressions, and voice. He puts his whole heart and soul into paying tribute to his favorite artist of all time night after night. He is a perfectionist and truly the very best at what he does. People can't stop talking about him and love and respect him for bringing MJ back to life. I will never tire of watching his performances and I think that anyone who hasn't seen him yet are definitely missing out. He puts on by far the best show I've ever seen.
Jalles was hands down one of the best MJ impersonators I have seen. Not only was he professional on stage but he was by far the friendliest person while getting pictures and autographs. I wish he was in an area i could see the show more often and take my friends to see just how great he is. So i say thank you Jalles Franca for giving me, my husband and son a night to always remember.
His performance was absolutely spectacular. My guests and I enjoyed it very much. He was definitely the highlight of my wedding reception.
Wow! Where do I start. I 1st saw MJ the Legend perform at NY NY hotel in Vegas and said to myself, I have to call him and see if there is anyway possible he would do my wife's 50th surprise birthday party in California. To my surprise we were able to come to terms and set the date. The whole time I wondered to myself , would he really show, would he really show? Not only did he show, but he turned the place out like he was performing at Wembley arena in front of thousands. The crowd was in awe the whole performance and I truly believe some of them thought they were seeing the real MJ live and in person. He made my wife feel super special and took time to visit with all the guest and take pictures after the performance. On top of all of that, he and his manager Kaylan are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. The party was a huge hit that had a lot of other things involved as well, but the next day on text message, facebook, twitter, instagram, all anyone wanted to talk about was MJ the Legend. Worth double what i paid for, and I just wish there was someway I could have done more. Thank you MJ the legend!!! The best I've ever seen.
I was sooo LUCKY to have been able to not only find MJ THE LEGEND, but also to have him available to come perform at my wedding! Two months since our wedding, we still have friends and family talking about how amazing his performance was! MJ THE LEGEND definitely kicked off the dancing portion of our wedding so perfectly and quite the bang! In addition to an AMAZING performance, I cannot tell you how non-diva, kind, open, and sweet MJ THE LEGEND was. After his performance, he stayed and took pictures with I think nearly all of our guests. Each guest he made them feel special, joked around with them, and man oh man what wonderful pictures he took with all of our friends and fafmily. Last, but not least, everything was so easy! All the way from the confirmation to MJ THE LEGEND coming to my reception to following up with the kindest thank you note. You cannot go wrong here- STOP looking at other MJs, MJ THE LEGEND is the only one!
The first time I saw Jalles was at New York New York in Vegas. I was walking through the casino and heard the song "Beat It" by Michael Jackson. As I turned toward the music, I could not believe my eyes. There he was. He was perfect. From the clothes to the moves and not to mention the looks. Months later I am proud to say that I am not only one of his biggest fans, we are now friends and I am looking forward to seeing him again. Jalles is truly the #1 MJ tribute artist I have ever seen!!
We just came from seeing The MJ Tribute show at the Rio in Las Vegas.
We are local so we don't go out that much . My husband and I are in our sixties and we were both MESMERIZED by you, Jalles Franca and your amazing performance as Michael Jackson.. He would be so proud but you but then I'm sure he is watching you every night and that 's why you're so amazing.... You would certainly thrill any age group!!
You're a truly great entertainer! We are also both musicians and we aren't easy to impress ..We never got to see Michael Jackson before he left us too soon but I feel that you are as close to Michael as it is possible. We were astounded by your voice, looks and moves. I felt like I was at a Michael Jackson concert. The overall show was stunning with an immeasurable amount of talent on stage!! Incredibly high energy!!
Thank you Jalles Franca for giving us an amazing unforgettable evening. You were wonderful and just as charming and gracious with all your fans afterwords..taking time with each and every man woman and child to show your appreciation in taking pictures and making sure that you signed all autographs, whether it be a piece of paper or a personal photo of you with them!! Your kind of humility is so rare and so refreshing!!
We will be back and we will bring friends, that's for sure..We can't wait!!
Very professional and on time. Show was well rehearsed and cleanly performed. Was great with all the guests at the meet and greet as well. I would recommend for anyone looking for an MJ impersonator.
His presence was a surprise to the birthday girl and all the guests and his performance made Madi's 50th birthday celebration much more special. What a great performer! Everyone enjoyed it.
he puts on a great show; dances great n does the moves n clothing so perfect u really feel MJ is resurrected. I caught a show at the nyny casino n was very impressed. I visited my bro DJ n he cane to eat w/us in full costume. I felt like I was with the king of pop. ppl took pix n he moonwalkedfor them. awesome!
When dealing with MJ opps I mean Jalles...you will always find him to be very professional, easy to work with and always entertaining. His impersonation of Michael Jackson is so incredible and so real that women were crying in the audience. He gets the audience excited and keeps them glued to his performance from start to finish. Its hard not to get your camera out and take a picture of such an incredible performance and entertainer! Everyone that meets Jalles MJ Franca loves him!! He draws a crowd everywhere he goes!!
I saw MJ The Legend performing in Las Vegas late 2010. He was simply awesome, and had the crowd rocking and screaming to his acts. Since then I've seen many of his performances on youtube.
I've seen various tribute artists over the years, and this one can't be faulted. His reproduction of the King Of Pop, is flawless, well presented and as close to the real mccoy as you're going to get. I loved his costume's too, which emphasize a mirror image of Michael Jackson.
Bare with me as im not a writer, i'll try my best to review this wonderful man. I have see this incredible man in person. If I didnt know better I would swear he WAS the KING OF POP himself. From the moment he walks out he exudes professionalism. The music starts and its show time. With every hip thrust,hand gesture,facial expression and look ALL IN PLACE. This young man screams of brilliance. His show is as beautiful as he is a person. Very fun,and approachable as well. And being a super-fan like I am,I know the KING OF POP would be very proud to know that his image is being portrayed in such a great,fun,energetic way. Jalles even captures MJ's smile. If you want the best,look no farther. Jalles is,...INCREDIBLE!!!
Not only is Jalles an amazing impersonator of the one and only MJ, but he is an incredible talent in all aspects. I have always been fascinated by his dance style and overall presentation, and his passion for artist expression is incredible. I would recommend Jalles for any event.
I've had the chance to see MJ The Legend performing 3 times and as an MJ fan, he is by far the most accurate, MJ performer. His dedication to every details from outfits to gestures is simply MJ perfection.
Jalles Franca performed at our wedding and will always have a special place in our hearts. We saw Jalles perform at NY NY in Vegas and immediately hired him to perform at our wedding in San Diego. He is a true professional and was very easy to work with. I did not need any additional stress. His performance was a surprise to my wife to be and all of our friends. His performance was unbelievable and is still talked about to this day. He was gracious with his time allowing for photos and autographs after the show. My wife and I both agree that if we had to do it all over again, we would hire Jalles Franca and team in a heart beat.
I have hired Jalles Franca on numerous events for corporate clients, he's a hit every time and interacts great with clients! If you are seeking any other MJ tribute artist, you're only getting an 'impersonator'. He's the real deal!
Our goal at MJ the Legend is to not only give the audience the utmost entertaining experience, but to be lost in the magic of Michael Jackson as if you were watching the man himself! We respect and love Michael as well as Michael's fans, and it means the world to us to help keep his legacy alive.
You can expect the most highly professional experience from initial contact until post-event, references from past clients available upon request.
