Who is the real Neil Diamond? Spot-on impersonator Tom Sadge makes it difficult to tell.

SCRANTON, Pa. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Neil Diamond fans are hard to impress, but one spot-on sound-alike does it daily.

Since 1997, entertainer Tom Sadge has been dying his naturally blond hair black, putting in brown contacts, and sporting sparkly sequin shirts as a top-rated Neil Diamond tribute artist.

Sadge doesn’t only look the part, he also sounds identical to Diamond, a vocal talent that’s fooled fans for years.

A radio station used to host a contest called “Who’s The Real Neil Diamond?” where they’d play clips of Sadge singing and Diamond singing, constantly stumping even the biggest Diamondheads.

With his dead-on chops, Sadge says he’s been able to build his own fanbase by performing at casinos and parties worldwide.

He even has a fan in Diamond himself, who once praised his singing skills in the middle of a concert.

Sadge also does the voices of Frank Sinatra, Engelbert Humperdinck, and Elvis.
