Remember that time Tupac performed with Snoop Dogg at Coachella in the form of a hologram? The next late music legend to be "resurrected" is, unsurprisingly, Michael Jackson.
The Michael Jackson hologram performed 'Slave To The Rhythm' at last night's Billboard Awards, a week after the release of Jackson's second posthumous album, Xscape. Some were thrilled by the eerily realistic projection, others found it tasteless. It's fair to say there was a mixed reaction from Twitter.

Some enjoyed it:

But there was also an overwhelmingly negative response...
That Michael Jackson "hologram" at the BBMAs disappointed me. They're kinda ruining my memories of him now.— - (@badg4lrihanna) May 19, 2014
