Donny & Marie Immortalized in Same Waxy Way As Elvis And Liberace

Madame Tussauds

Donny and Marie Osmond put a twist on their trademark jingle as their wax figures for Madam Tussaud’s studio were revealed Tuesday for the first time at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

The brother and sister duo from Utah are the first new figures to be introduced at the museum this year and it’s the first time the famous siblings have been immortalized in wax.

“I’m speechless because it is so exact,” Donny said.

“I looked at it and went, ‘That is crazy,’” Marie said.

During the reveal the two jokingly talked about how real the figures looked

“It’s different than looking in the mirror, that’s two-dimensional. This is three-dimensional,” Donny said.

“You know, his looks so much better than him,” Marie said.

“You know, I love hers because it doesn’t talk,” Donny said.

Nearly 300 exact body and facial measurements were taken of each sibling. Hair samples and eye color comparisons were also taken for the project which began in 2015.  This week marks the eighth year of the Donnie and Marie show on the Vegas strip. Their figures are now permanently on display inside the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas.
