Michael Jackson hologram performs at Billboard Music Awards

A hologram of Michael Jackson ‘performed’ at the Billboard Music Awards last night (18th of May.)

You can watch footage from the show below.

The hologram made up part of the performance of new song, ‘Slave To The Rhythm’, which features on the singer’s posthumous album, Xscape.

The performance was supposed to be secret, but a ruling by a federal judge which rejected a lawsuit from hologram companies Hologram USA Inc and Musion Das Hologram Ltd – who made the Tupac hologram at 2012’s Coachella Festival and hoped to stop the performance – made the news of the event public prior to the awards show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Xscape went straight to Number One in the UK last night.
