Michael Jackson’s Hologram Moonwalks at Billboard Music Awards

Michael Jackson is back on the stage. The billboard music awards recreated Michael Jackson as a hologram on Sunday, performing “Slave to the Rhythm,” a song listed in his posthumous album, Xscape, which was based on Jackson's music not yet released during his lifetime.

 

Similar to the hologram performance of Tupac Shakur alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at Coachella music festival in 2012, the singing and the “moonwalking” dance moves of the King of Pop made it seem like he’d never left us.

 

 

This is one of many digital reincarnations. After Tupac's virtual comeback, there were private solo concerts in various cities performed by rapper M.I.A. and singer Janelle Monae, both ending their shows as life-sized 3D projections. In 2013, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes were also recreated in 3D.

Social media reactions were different. Many fans were shocked at how life-like the hologram looked. The viewers were split between those who felt the performance kept Michael’s legacy alive and those who sensed Jackson’s memory was desecrated by it.

 

Michael Jackson died in June 2009 at 50 years from acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication after a heart attack. His death was ruled a homicide.
