Video of Christina Aguilera single a medley of Whitney Houston songs with a computer-generated recreation of the late singer is getting mixed reactions. Some like it, while others believe it doesn't look like Houston, who died in a Beverly Hills Hotel bathtub on the eve of the Grammys in 2012.
Houston's estate doesn't think it is good enough for prime time. Whitney sister-in-law Pat Houston, who controls her estate, has vetoed showing this video on the season finale of "The Voice". She issued this statement:
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.
The video on Vimeo is described as "leaked," so no assurance how long it will be available for viewing.
