Jackson Doppelganger Pranks The Billboard Awards
Country superstar Alan Jackson's doppelganger DOUG BREWIN had country stars screaming at the Billboard Music Awards on Tuesday (06DEC05) when he pretended to be the music hunk on the red carpet.
Organisers were baffled when Jackson appeared suddenly on the red carpet - because he wasn't billed to take part in the proceedings, but they played along all the same.
Brewin, who works as an Alan Jackson lookalike in Las Vegas, Nevada, was commissioned by promoters of Sin City cabaret show LEGENDS IN CONCERT to prank the media.
Arriving at the event in a yellow stretch Hummer, Brewin was met by a fake camera crew and fake autograph seekers - all arranged by Legends In Concert, according to entertainment website TMZ.com.
Awards show staff quickly recognised Brewin as Jackson and hustled him onto the red carpet.
