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):
