Whitney Houston’s hologram show cancelled


NEW YORK - A much-anticipated performance by Whitney Houston in hologram form won’t air on NBC’s “The Voice” next week, after all.

The performance, which would have paired the late singer with Christina Aguilera, a “Voice” celebrity coach, was expected to air on Tuesday’s season finale. But the high-tech duet has been cancelled for technical reasons.

Pat Houston, the late superstar’s sister-in-law and head of her estate, explained that “holograms are a new technology that will take time to perfect.”

After reviewing the hologram performance, she said the decision was made that it fell short of the perfection “Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve,” and shouldn’t air.

Plans for such a hologram had been discussed more than a year ago. NBC had no comment on Friday.

Houston died in 2012 at age 48.
