This is a very interesting question...it did seem like they were speechless or more excited than you think they should be.

What I don't understand is how Tupac's hologram looked so much better than MJ's if this was such an improvement on this type of technology. Tupac's hologram was 2 years ago and this is the improvement they made, really? Putting MJ's name next to this 'new technology' and letting him introduce it, is a cop out. They really think MJ would be pleased with this even though he is a perfectionist? MJ comes second to no one but this time he did. It lowers MJ standards in my mind and ruins his image.

The weird thing I find with this hologram is the head, it seems too big for the body, like the holographic head is attached to a real body. The reason why I said the body could be real is that at the 0:40 mark in the video the dancer next to the throne 'bumps' MJ and he reacts to it by moving, they kind of touch, he doesn't go through her. It could be something or nothing, I only looked into it because MJ's official twitter account had a pic of MJ on the throne with the caption 'Did you see it?'.

However the only thing I got out of this was that Tupac's hologram must be him really performing.

This quote was on my twitter feed earlier tonight.

@DJDENSE I don't think anyone will outdue the Tupac hologram performance, you would of think that since it's MJ they would of topped Pac's

2Pac's "hologram" used an updated version of the "Pepper's Ghost" technology, which is fairly old (i.e. late 1800's). 




From what I recall, there was someone that made the movements beforehand that allowed them to have him interact with Snoop as well as be in sync with the performance.  Pac actually addressed the crowd, which was either done through audio manipulation or a vocal impersonator.  There is a rapper that was also signed to Death Row Records known as "The Realest," who is known as a 2Pac imitator and has done some vocal fill-ins for 2Pac's posthumous releases in the past.  His voice has been manipulated with in the past, so I'm not quite sure which route they took in that regard.

I watched on TV and it really looked as Michael's hologram  not impersonator. It was incredible, amazing and song just as great as Michael. After that performance there is no one and nothing else to watch .

You're kidding right?

Must be! If you dont see this is not Michael?

It's too obvious. We really don't need any confirmation from the family. I don't care if some people really enjoyed the performance. Truth is that guy on the stage was an imp. and that wasn't a hologram. He did moves that weren't ever danced by Michael. I don't know why the audience gave a standing ovation but I'm sure most of them thought 'what the f' the moment they saw the guy. 

It's not any historic tv event, it was an utter failure.

Billboard Awards Preview
Michael Jackson Imagery Is "As If He's Still Alive"

May 17, 2014 by Robin Leach.

A “real-life” Michael Jackson will appear halfway through the 2014 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday at MGM Grand Garden Arena despite last-minute lawsuits and court filings to block the spectacle.


“It’s as if he’s still alive. He’s totally real. It’s absolutely uncanny. People who have seen just a little of it have become so emotional, they have tears running down their face. They are sobbing because it’s as if he didn’t die,” I was told.


Late Friday, federal judge Kent Dawson ruled here that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove that patents on previous hologram 3D images held by two companies and an individual had been violated.

The emergency lawsuit had been filed against the King of Pop’s estate and its trustees John Branca and Howard Weitzman by Hologram USA Inc., Musion Das Hologram Ltd and businessman Alki David, who says that he control rights to hologram technology.

A veil of secrecy has been lowered over the Billboard extravaganza. The only official word from ABC and Dick Clark Productions is that “it will be a history-making performance.” My original story about the imagery was posted at Vegas DeLuxe on Tuesday when Michael’s new album “Xscape” was released.

But I learned exclusively Friday night that Michael’s image to be unveiled about halfway in the three-hour ABC telecast is brand new technology.

“It was two years in development and took an additional six months to create for this network premiere,” I was told. “This is way, way beyond a hologram. It is way, way beyond what you know as 3D. This isn’t even digital. It is far more advanced and a totally new process.”

“This lawsuit to attempt to stop the broadcast was just a stunt. It was ludicrous,” snapped L.A. attorney Howard Weitzman, who represented Michael’s estate and Dick Clark Productions, who is staging the BBMAs for ABC. “The court’s decision is not surprising.”

I also exclusively learned that Michael will be seen dancing with a cast of dancers. He will be seen moonwalking back and forth the entire MGM Grand Garden Arena stage. He also will be seen dancing up and down stairs.

“This is the most emotional piece of television we have ever produced in our 40-year TV careers,” two Dick Clark Productions execs told me. “A few people have seen it, a tiny portion of it, already in the arena and have been crying — it’s that powerful. Incredibly, it plays even better on the TV screen, so imagine how viewers will react at home.


“They will be in a state of disbelief. It’s as if he’s still alive at the height of his career.”

I learned that Michael’s estate trustees came across undiscovered L.A. Reid recorded footage of Michael that they didn’t know existed. The lawsuit says the music will be a new song, “Slave to the Rhythm.”

“They didn’t know what they originally wanted to do with it or make with it except just wanting to capture him alive forever. That became the background format for this new technology. It might have gone to Cirque du Soleil. They might have found a way to complete the This Is It tour.

“This has never been done before. It is 100 steps beyond anything anybody has ever thought you’d experienced as a hologram. It is so real, it is so lifelike, there is no way an audience would know the artist is not there in front of them. So real an artist would actually never have to go out on tour again or need makeup for an appearance. The artist is there without being there. You cannot tell the difference.

“That will be proven Sunday night with Michael Jackson, just like he’s done before time and time again as a pioneer with music-technology breakthroughs.”

A few key major city radio DJs were given a 30-second sneak preview of the spectacle after signing secrecy agreements. Under strict promises of remaining anonymous, I was told: “Within 10 seconds, I was shaking. Then I started sobbing. Michael was alive. I had goose bumps. He was as real as the day I last saw him alive.

“I cannot tell you what he does, but his fans from this point on will never believe that he died. It will be four minutes they will remember forever.”

No plans for its future use have yet been revealed, but I am told that plans will be forthcoming and will be expanded to include other song material later.

Meantime, another lawsuit has yet to be determined. Cirque and MGM Resorts International have until next Friday to answer a case in Los Angeles Federal Court filed by Hologram USA claiming unlicensed use of the digital rendition used in Cirque’s “Michael Jackson One” at Mandalay Bay.


If you reread the article again after the awards, it's looks like they were talking about a whole different event now!.  LOL

It was def. NOT beyond anything anybody has ever thought you’d experienced as a hologram.

At least i had been expecting an holographic MJ, not an impersonator.

Hi Everyone, it's been awhile.  Just wanted to add my two cents worth.  I was disappointed in the hologram performance, don't get me wrong it was great to watch but to me looked like an impersonater.   My husband and I first thought "Michael" looked different because it was a hologram, but Tupac didn't look different.  Just makes your head spin...

Now that I am no longer under confidentiality agreement: first Xscape album presenting the hologram of Michael being not ready I was called to do an extract from my show. I knew nothing before the day J because it was confidential even for us. What I appreciated it is to hear, just before my coming, CEO Sony say: the hologram being not ready there was not better to embody that Christopher Michael. Yes I admit that would my grey

Maintenant que je ne suis plus sous contrat de confidentialité : lors de la première présentation de l'album Xscape l'hologramme de Michael n'étant pas prêt j'ai été appelé pour faire un extrait de mon show. Je ne savais rien avant le jour J car cela était confidentiel même pour nous. Ce que j'ai apprécié c'est d'entendre, juste avant mon entree, le pdg Sony dire : l'hologramme n'étant pas prêt il n'y avait pas mieux pour incarner Michael que Christopher. Oui j'avoue que cela ma grisé

When MJ performs, his dancing is different, he expresses the song with strong emotions that pulls into loving the song. the way that this hologram danced was not MJ, it appeared like a average dancer aka impersonator who always dances differently to MJ. you can always tell by key signature moves and behaviours which you can always see in MJ when he is on stage.

but instead worrying about the hologram, i like know more about the background. is there clues in the way it was designed? i mean there always going to be small tricks and illusions shown in plain sight but you never see it the first time.

I am really happy after seeing the hologram,because the world has had another confirmation that Michael Jackson is only one and only  he will decide when to get back on stage.  :icon_razz: :moonwalk_:

Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."
