A very, very human-looking “Jackson” was joined by a chorus of real (?) backup dancers as he performed the new tune “Slave to the Rhythm” from his recent posthumous album, “Xscape.” Jackson’s image was seen sitting on a throne, apparently part of the set decoration - then he started moving and you realized it was a hologram!
Dressed in red pants, white shirt, and gold and white striped jacket --with his hair pulled back while doing some complicated choreography - it looked incredibly real.
Whether it was tears of joy upon seeing their favourite artiste somehow back and performing, or tears of sadness because the image was so disturbing, some in the audience were crying.
The audience was cheering wildly, of course - though some could not figure out how to react. The camera panned to one group sitting there slack-jawed. A woman was shown wiping off tears streaming down her face. One guy was dancing though.
Watch the video after the cut.
