The appearance of Whitney Houston’s hologram on NBC’s The Voice has been axed by the stars estate following footage of the hologram’s duet with Christina Aguilera leaking online.
Disaster has marred Houston’s performance using holographic technology, which was scheduled to debut on the final of The Voice on the 23rd and 24th of May in the US. The Houston Estate has decided to axe the event, citing the Hologram’s unready state.
Whitney Houston’s estate executor Pat Houston commented:
“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”.
“We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBCs The Voice with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. We were looking to deliver a groundbreaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. 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”.
