Michael Jackson Hologram Performs at This Year’s Billboard Awards, Footage Surfaces
Spicing up this year's Billboard Music Awards, a hologram of late great Michael Jackson has hit the stage for a performance of the singer's posthumous track "Slave to the Rhythm" off the latest studio release "Xscape."

Kicking off the performance from a golden throne, the MJ hologram once again delivered a vast array of late musician's signature moves. The footage was quick to surface, make sure to check it out below.

As for the rest of the ceremony, the event saw Justin Timberlake emerging as the Top Artist, Robin Thicke taking the Top Hot 100 Song with "Blurred Lines," Imagine Dragons fetching the Best Group award and more. Check out the full winners list here.

As the Verge points out in the latest report, the technology to create onstage holograms has existed since the 16th century. It was given a name by a British chemist John Pepper in Victorian Britain.
