New Jacko Tracko -- Done by a White Guy!

9/21/2007 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Believe it or not, this is guy who fooled everybody into thinking that it was MJ's latest, including a Pittsburgh radio station and pretty much anyone who heard it.

His name is Jason Malachi, an Italian-American guy from Silver Spring, MD, who just happens to sound exactly like Michael Jackson. On his MySpace page, he's got three or four tracks available for listening, and let's just say they're all heavily influenced by Jacko, breathy falsetto and all.

Course it's not MJ - the fans knew it all along. It's only tab sites like this one who were actually fooled.

OMG, I checked out Jason Malachi's Myspace page and in addition to his songs I found some dance footage on him. He dances like theres no tommorrow and he also does a rendition of Smooth Criminal. AMAZING! Just click on the videos tab. He's going to be the next big thing!!!

Wow, amazing voice resemblance to MJJ. Too bad this guy "came out" as the real singer, he could have been a "ghost singer" for MJJ, since apparently MJJ can't sing anymore, probably due to his catastrophic nose problems. I suspect MJJ is unable to sing like he used to, he probably needs to wear some sort of prosthetic device to keep what's left of his nose together. MJJ probably is only able to lip sync these days, like Britney.

I agree!!! I didn't think I'd be impressed but that first clip, "Don't Walk Away", blew me away! Great stuff Mr. Malachi.

i guess the mixing could make him kinda sound like MJ but he also sounds a little like george michael ... he should gt a record deal though and not try to copy anyone- maybe he's good!

Shamon!    

This cat's certainly got the voice to match Mike, but his look is all wrong- he's much blacker than Mikey!

Damn, he sounded more like Michael Jackson thank MJ sounds like himself these days. Can you say "Chi-Ching!" He's getting a record deal for sure and he's going to get lots of money.
