M.I.A., Janelle Monae perform hologram duet

Singers M.I.A. and Janelle Monae shared the stage during separate concerts on opposite coasts through the magic of holograms.

M.I.A. performed in New York with a 3-D projection of Monae Thursday night while Monae sang on the West Coast with M.I.A.’s likeness.

Both artists have ideas for how they might use performance holograms beyond their bi-coastal duet, which was sponsored by Audi to launch its A3 model.

T-Boz confirms Left Eye projection for TLC reunion tour, says Tupac's hologram made her cry

The Year of the Virtual Performer is officially in full swing.

Fresh of the heels of TLC’s “reunion” tour announcement, member T-Boz confirmed to Essence that the deceased Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes will indeed be represented on tour.

“I have been trying to get a hologram for years, but no one would pay for the budget,” she told Essence. Instead, the group will settle for projecting Left Eye’s likeness on a Jumbotron during shows. “Fans are happy, but it’s a reminder that she’s not here,” she says.

“With Lisa, the first three years, I don’t think I could’ve dealt with a hologram because you see how eerie it is,” she continued, adding: “When I saw the Tupac hologram, it made me feel some kind of way. I had tears in my eyes because he was my friend.”
