In case you hadn’t heard, there’s ‘An Evening With Whitney Houston’ touring Europe and America this year which is obviously a bit weird because Whitney Houston’s been dead for 8 years.

As you may have guessed, audience members aren’t spending an evening with the real Whitney Houston, but rather a digital version of her – a Whitney Houston hologram ‘performing’ on stage.
The show uses “state-of-the-art, proprietary holographic technology,” says the production company, which creates a “breathtakingly convincing hologram of the late, great American superstar.”
If by “breathtakingly convincing” they mean she looks like a broken Sims character trying to waft away a fart, I guess that’s spot on:

I mean… that’s just weird, isn’t it? The tour has apparently been a big success so far even though many people – even attendees – agree it’s super creepy:

Of course, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, former manager and the executor of her estate (who is producing the show), says it’s what Whitney would have wanted. Um, for real? (via Time)
In the spirit of Whitney, I know we’re doing all the right things right now. This is something that she wanted to do. I get very emotional watching this, because it is so, so close to what she wanted.
Well I guess if someone’s dying wish is to be made into a dancing hologram 8 years after their death, then who are we to judge? Best review of the tour below, btw:
Mum and Sister went to see the Whitney Houston hologram in Leeds tonight. The hologram entered the stage singing “I will always love you” as a fist fight broke out amongst a group of middle aged women. It’s what she would have wanted. God bless West Yorkshire.

For the 35-year-old Japanese man who married a hologram of a 16-year-old porn star, click HERE. That’s normal, isn’t it?
