Viewers of The Voice were in for a special treat for next week’s season finale- Whitney Houston was going to perform with Christina Aguilera! A hologram of Whitney sang side by side with Xtina, but Whitney’s estate decided to cut the performance from the show.
“Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect,” the estate said in a statement released yesterday…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.”
You won’t be seeing the performance on-air, but you can watch Xtina and Whitney belt out “I Have Nothing” and “I’m Every Woman,” below!
UPDATE: The clip was pulled earlier today. Sorry if you were unable to watch it. We’ve swapped it out for ET’s video package on the Whitney’s estate’s decision to wait on the hologram.
