Sunday night's performance by Michael Jackson at the Billboard Awards was other-worldly.  Quite literally!

The whole deceased-legends-reincarnated-as-a-3D-laser shtick has been done before— 2pac and Elvis Presley have already been there, done that — but MJ’s label just released a new album of material (Xscape), so the hype was high.

But digital Michael Jackson performed his “new” track, “Slave to the Rhythm,” anyway.

The performance was so real-to-life, many people were left wondering if Michael Jackson was actually still alive.

Here is a link to the hologram performance.
