The rumors of Whitney Houston’s hologram to perform a duet with Christina Aguilera for the season finale of NBC’s The Voice were apparently true.
An anonymous source told EW that The Voice had decided to pull the performance from airing because the hologram of the late Ms. Houston didn’t meet the show’s high production standards.
However, theories have been floating around that the footage was pulled after leaking online Thursday and encountering harsh criticism.
