The late Michael Jackson underwent a resurrection of sorts at the BillBoard Music Awards ceremony held recently.
The star studded audience watched in amazement as the â€˜King of Popâ€™ joined 15 live dancers and took centre stage to dance and sing â€˜Slave to the Rhythmâ€™, a track of his newly released posthumous album Xscape.
Although it was widely reported that a hologram was responsible for the performance, word is that an old magicianâ€™s trick originating from the 16th century was the inspiration for the technique. The two dimensional illusion was first used in a production of Charles Dickens play â€˜The Haunted Manâ€™ in 1862.
BillBoard said it took months of planning, choreography and fine tuning technology to get the result that has caused amazement around the world.
