Michael Jackson Returns as Hologram to the Stage at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards

Despite some legal issues prior to the event, Michael Jackson returned on stage for a tribute performance at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. In what was called once in a lifetime Michael Jackson experience, the “King of Pop” apppeared in Hologram form on stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, to perform “Slave to the Rhythm” off his posthumous album XSCAPE. You can watch the performance above.

There has been patent dispute over the hologram technology behind it. A federal judge in Las Vegas dismissed injunction to prevent the performance, which plaintiffs Hologram USA and Musion Das Hologram claim violates their intellectual property. Both entities received the patents after purchasing the company that was behind the infamous Tupac hologram at Coachella in 2012.
