More On Why Whitney Houston's Estate Nixed The Christina Aguilera Duet On The Voice — Find Out What Bothered Them About The Hologram!
UPDATE 5:11 P.M. ET: Aguilera has now weighed in on Houston's estate nixing the hologram duet, releasing a statement on Friday afternoon:
"I was honored that the Houston family asked me to perform a duet with the legendary Whitney Houston on The Voice. Sadly the technology could not meet up to the talent that Whitney possessed, but I do know in time the performance the fans and I have been hoping for will come to life."
Just as soon as it leaked… it was gone!
Last night we got a look at the much-ballyhooed Whitney Houston hologram that was set to debut as part of a duet alongside Christina Aguilera on The Voice's season finale next week, but it looks like that's all been nixed!
Just hours after footage of the late singer's hologram and performance alongside Aguilera leaked on Facebook, Pat Houston — Whitney's sister-in-law and the executor of her estate — announced that they will NOT allow it to air on TV!
The vid — which has since been deleted from the social network — was a snippet of Aguilera belting out I Have Nothing before introducing the hologram of a much younger Houston, at which point the two stars sung I'm Every Woman together with the late great singer even going through a hologram costume change.
But it wasn't meant to be…
Pat dropped a statement regarding the hologram, making special note that it seemed to be an issue with the image's technology, and not something surrounding Christina (below):

DWTS Gave Us A Nip Slip, TWO Eliminations, & TWO Perfect Scores Last Night — Watch All The Highlights HERE!
Monday night's episode of Dancing With The Stars might have been the most exciting yet because it not only gave us two eliminations this week to make up for last week, but there was a wardrobe malfunction!
You may have missed it because DWTS producers apparently used their eagle-eye vision, but NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown's partner Sharna Burgess briefly had her nipple slip out of her dress while she was dancing. YIKES!
During the broadcast airing of the episode (below), you'll notice that shortly after the 4:22 mark, the screen cuts to the show's logo as someone noticed Sharna's little whoopsie moment.
After the performance, Tom Bergeron took a moment to pull the dancer aside without the camera looking, and made sure her dress was fixed!
On top of that excitement, there were also the first perfect SCORES of the season thanks to Ginger Zee and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as well as Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas, while both Kim Fields and Von Miller – as well as their partners — were sent home.
Ch-ch-check out all the best moment from last night's DWTS (below)!
Britney Spears To Be Honored With Millennium Award AND Perform At The Billboard Music Awards — Get The Deets!
It was revealed on Monday that the 34-year-old artist will be the recipient of this year's Billboard Millennium Award for her outstanding career achievements in the music industry!
This is big news!!
The first ever documentary on Whitney Houston that is being officially authorized by her estate is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct!
The filmmaker has apparently been given "unprecedented" levels of access to Whitney's closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer's life, from childhood all the way through stardom.
The film is also set to include an interview with Clive Davis, the founder and head honcho at Arista Records and one of the chief execs at Sony's music label, who is widely regarded as the man who first brought Houston on to the national scene.
Macdonald, who has already won an Oscar for the powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:
Nick Gordon Emotionally Opens Up About Bobbi Kristina's Tragic Drowning — Reveals The Late Starlet Struggled With Depression After Two Miscarriages
This is so intense.
On Wednesday, Nick Gordon opened up about his late love Bobbi Kristina's tragic drowning which led to her eventual death months later. How sad!
As you may know, back in January 2015, the R&B scion was found face down and unresponsive in the bathtub — which is eerily similar to the same way her mother Whitney Houston died. In a sit down with DailyMail, Nick emotionally talked about what exactly went down the hours before B.K.'s passing and about their drug use as a couple.
"I blame myself for not getting to Krissy quick enough that day. I can't blame myself for another addict's addiction but I feel like I failed her. She didn't make it. I wish she got help. I wish she got my spot [in rehab]. I did not protect her the way that I was supposed to – even if it was from herself."
In case you forgot, Nick sought treatment after Dr. Phil held an intervention for him last year. The late celebutante's fiancé is slated to appear on the celebrity doctor's show again this Thursday and Friday.
In addition to his addiction problems, Nick has been under intense scrutiny for his actions surrounding Krissy's tragic accident. While the police cannot determine another person was involved in causing Bobbi's death, her father Bobby Brown is convinced that Nick is to blame for her demise. Gordon has since called this lawsuit "bullsh*t".
In regards to the hours leading up to Miz Brown's death, Nick explained:
