Thanks to the wonders of technology, Michael Jackson will reportedly be among the performers at this Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards.
The website Showbiz411 previously reported that the late King of Pop will appear as a hologram on the telecast, which will air on ABC live from Las Vegas. Now, the site has more details about this performance. Allegedly, the projection of MJ will appear to be singing “Slave to the Rhythm,” a track from Michael’s posthumous album XSCAPE, in stores now.
According to the website, the hologram will be created using the same technology that allowed the late rap legend Tupac Shakur to “appear” at the Coachella Music Festival in 2012.
To see if this turns out to be a cool effect, or simply a ghoulish attempt to resurrect the King of Pop, tune into the 2014 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
