Whitney Houston hologram duet with Christina Aguilera cancelled
A duet between Christina Aguilera and a hologram of the late Whitney Houston was scheduled for The Voice finale in America next week, but it has now been axed by Houston's team after being declared "not ready to air".
Footage from the rehearsal leaked online, which you can see below, and the executor of Houston's estate, Pat Houston, has now issued a statement on the unfortunate decision. She said:
“We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston.”
"We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect. Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection.”
“After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless."
