Needed More Crotch Grabbing: Michael Jackson's Hologram Performed At The Billboard Music Awards

michael-jackson-hologram.jpg

This is a video of Michael Jackson's hologram performing 'Slave To The Rhythm' at yesterday's 2014 Billboard Music Awards. He looked pretty lifelike. So lifelike I'm not convinced it wasn't actually Michael Jackson. Maybe he finally got bored of pretending to be dead and just wanted to perform again. I can respect that. I just wish Biggie would do the same.

Keep going for the performance.

Thanks to val and Tracie, who wants to see a Wu-Tang concert complete with ODB.

    I respect Michael Jackson for what he did as an artist but this creepy hologram crap only comes across as something his family put out to the public to keep making money off his name...

  • Mr. Popo

    Cool! Now they should make him say: "Try our La Bamba fajita tortilla pita. It's got a hot salsa, avocados, cilantro mix, with your choice of beans, chicken, be-be-beef, or pork" and my life would be complete.

    3:34 RUFIO! RUFIO! RU-FI-OOOOOoooo! > w<

    Great performance, but that is clearly a Michael look-a-like. His face is similar, but much younger and more feminine looking. He did a perfect job at the role though.

  • Liceana

    Is a body double with a CGI face

  • BlackMesaPhD

    Wow! There's even a reflection on the stage from the hologram-feet!

  • I wonder when the Neverlandranch will be open to the puplic like Graceland.

  • aaag

    i hope it gets bought by a foreign billionaire from China or Mid East and be renamed 'Michael Jacksonland' with 50ft animatronic Jacko

  • Oh even better-Skywalker Ranch. I d like to visit Lucas Realm!

    Regardless of the negative press through his life and individual opinions, Michael Jackson helped mold and redefine the musical world. That simply cannot be said about a whole lot of people. Some may not like or appreciate his music, but that does not take away from how iconic, charitable, and compassionate the man was. He was a weird dude... but maybe we all need a little more eccentricity in our lives if it means helping countless others. At the time of his death, Michael Jackson regularly gave large donations to almost 40 charities. When's the last time you gave to just one? I know for me, it hasn't been in awhile.

  • NicestPersonEver

    He also had zero common sense, a Peter Pan complex, addiction to plastic surgery that he never kicked, used other peoples popularity to boost his own then dropped them when they stop serving a purpose.

    Nothing MJ did was without an ulterior motive. As for his 'talent' you can thank Fred Astaire for that considering all MJ's moves were just a copy/paste. Smooth Criminal was a move for move rip off right down to the suit.

    MJ could sing, no doubt about that. That's where it ends. Don't do yourself a disservice by pretending he was more than what he actually was. Not trying to be an ass, but that's the reality of it.

  • This_Update_Sucks

    We can all argue about the ethics of his personal life. But the thing that no one can deny is that as a performer he was insanely talented.

  • Hayley Prychun Rodgers

    I can, I loath his voice and never found his dancing all that impressive, self groping and then squealing just never got to me.

    KING OF POP!!!

    Yes but at what cost man, at what cost.

    If by compassion you mean countless molestation charges and eyewitness accounts to said charges, then yes, very compasionate.

    If by charitable, you mean giving copious amounts of hush money to parents of alleged victims, then yes very charitable indeed.

  • Ollie Williams

    I understand your points, and while others may note that he was never convicted, that could easily be passed off as having a lot of money, and a lot of lawyers. I guess I'd rather look at the good in people rather than accusations that are, inevitably, just accusations. Maybe if anything was actually proven or he was convicted, I'd think differently. Again, he was a pretty weird dude, but I can't fault someone for something that he was never convicted by the courts of doing. Doing so seems unfair and against everything the "innocent until proven guilty" methodology of the justice system is about, albeit the obvious corruption. Having that much fame and money is bound to attract those who would want to profit from it, pretty much happens every day. Something to keep in mind, I suppose.

  • ODwanKenObi

    Of course Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Can't prove someone guilty if the cases never make it to court tho.

    ODawnKenObi, I understand your argument, but what does it say about the legitimacy of the claims if they were willing to take hush money? I know if it were my child that was harmed, I wouldn't settle for anything less then seeing the culprit in jail.

  • ODwanKenObi

    And you think with all his money, power, lawyers and influence that some lowly minimum wage parent would be able to see the culprit be put in jail. If that's what you think you are fooling yourself. Just because the people took millions in hush money does not mean the molestation magically never occured. People are blinded by his great talent and are able to look past his sick secrets. It doesn't make them any less sick. I'm not going to argue any further. There is plenty evidence out there to show what took place. Believe what you want.
