Christina Aguilera’s duet with a Whitney Houston hologram has been pulled from “The Voice” after footage of the performance leaked online yesterday. According to PEOPLE, Whitney’s sister Pat Houston released a statement announcing the cancellation for undisclosed reasons.
“Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect,” she said. “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.”
When Whitney Houston was alive, she praised Christina Aguilera as the best singer to do a rendition of “Run To You” beside herself (of course), but we have a feeling the late great voice wouldn’t be so happy about this.
Video of Christina Aguilera performing with a Whitney hologram on “The Voice” leaked today and we’re seriously questioning why producers ever thought it was a good idea.
As we’ve seen with the Tupac and Michael Jackson holograms, they’re creepy and just don’t feel right. And in this case, the hologram doesn’t look anything like Whitney.
Harpo, who this woman?!
While we love and dearly miss Whitney Houston, we can watch a Youtube video to relive her greatness.
“The Voice” season finale airs tonight on ABC at 9/8c.
