Well finally...a virtural Michael Jackson has appeared! I know Michael is somewhere pissed Tupac was the first music legend to do it...but according to those who witnessed the hologram of Michael in Vegas Thursday night...virtual Michael may be the best hologram thus far!
According to Forbes, Michael's hologram appeared towards the end of Michael Jackson's ONE, a joint venture between Cirque du Soleil and Jackson's estate. The singer's virtual image appeared from a cloud of gold pixie dust and from there delivered "a rousing rendition of 'Man In The Mirror.'" According to eyewitnesses, Jackson's hologram danced around the stage as a group of dancers swirled around him, moving in unison...quite reminiscent of a living Michael Jackson's concert. The hologram of Michael apparently even drops to one knee, similar to what the late legend would do in the past while performing 'Man In The Mirror'. What we love to hear is, the virtual Michael even briefly transforms into a Jackson 5 era Michael Jackson, from there the hologram image evaporates.

The owner of Hampton Blu, Stacey Brewer, has had the pleasure of going to a Michael Jackson concert, she says, "the man had an energy like no other."
Virtual Michael will never be able to duplicate a living Michael's energy...but at least future generations can get a hint via his hologram.
