Japanese people love virtual singers

Japanese are crazy people. A holographic character with a synthesized voice is gathering the stage?

How much do you pay to watch a video game sing and dance.

In the future, I think the Japanese will be the first to willingly upload themselves into machines and leave their bio bodies behind for good.

Worst thing about this is half the crowd would prolly accept a proposal from whatever it is on stage.

I'd say why not, there is a human somewhere behind this who made the music, the software, it's just a representation. Like when some death metal metal bands play all masked.

Art is a really personal thing :) And they seem to enjoy this form.

I *so* hope that the crowd is cheering for the *band* and not the ... "avatar?"

That's not even a hologram. It's simply a projection on a transparent screen, clearly shown at 2:41, so from an angle it wouldn't be different from a corner seat in the cinema.

Why saying that "Japanese are crazy people" because their taste is different?
Don't you think that Lady Gaga has also something special in her talent?
And by the way, singing with Autotune isn't far from using a synthetic voice... >:)

To be fair, she's as vacuous as any American pop-star

@torbengb You are incorrect, they're using holographic projection which uses a screen (as you pointed out) that creates multiple images based on the your viewing angle... just like the hologram on your credit card.

She is Hatsune Miku (16yo (btw 16yo forever)) synthetic girl/voice.
Just for reference: "In August 2010, over 22,000 original songs had been written for Hatsune Miku."
She has a great base of fans.

If you thought this was crazy, you know nothing about Japanese musical culture... Babymetal is much more... Let's say "surprising" than this ;)

Real chickas are better, except for the fat ones.

The holo chick is in fact a dude
