Los Angeles, May 21 (IANS) An artificial version of the late singer Whitney Houston was supposed to make its debut during the finale of “The Voice”. However, it seems like those behind the hologram had second thoughts after footage of its duet with singer Christina Aguilera leaked online.
The video featured Aguilera and Houston singing a medley of hits, including “I have nothing” and “I’m every woman”. Pat Houston has confirmed that the performance will not be broadcast, reports mirror.co.uk.
He explained that it had nothing to do with Aguilera’s performance and was instead because the hologram ‘must be perfect’ first.
“We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists,” a statement read.
“Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect.
“Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection. After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air.
“We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.”
Houston passed away when she drowned after suffering from a heart attack while in the bath in February 2012.
