A virtual Michael Jackson rocked the house at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night.
Nearly five years after his death, a life-like hologram of the King of Pop performed “Slave to the Rhythm,” a song from his second posthumously released album, “Xscape.”
People in the audience clapped and cheered, and one woman could be seen wiping away tears as the hologram performed his signature moonwalk.
While most fans set social media ablaze, others found it unsettling and dishonorable.
“It’s kind of creepy. I didn’t like it. I thought it was bad way to honor him,” one poster wrote on Facebook.
The hologram’s appearance had been in some doubt. The owners of the technology – which was also used to bring slain rapper Tupac Shakur back to digital life for a 2012 performance at the Coachella music festival – had sought to block tonight’s performance based on alleged potential patent violations, but on Friday a judge denied the request and ruled that the awards could use Jackson’s hologram, ABC News reported.
