King Resurrected: Michael Jackson’s Hologram Performs At Billboard Music Awards

On Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, Michael Jackson came back from the dead for a one-time-only performance. Well, not Michael Jackson, human being, but Michael Jackson, hologram, to perform “Slave to the Rhythm,” a track off Xscape, his new posthumous album. I kept reading all of the different reactions and expectations leading up to the performance and sort of laughing it off.

As rap fans, we’re ahead of the curve as usual since we’ve already been exposed to holograms for Tupac, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E. It’s about time music fans from other genres get creeped out by ghost-like performances from their favorites, too.
