    I guess all the leeches didn’t make enough money off him while he was alive. Now they have to take advantage of his corpse.

  • Marilina

    Michael is dead, please it’s time for all of us to let him go and leave him alone and rest in peace for once!! The music that HE MADE will keep him alive FOREVER! This is all for the money just that!

    I love you Michael, rest in peace! ♥

  • slave to mjs rhythm

    MJ jumped the shark with that performance… the song Slave to the Rhythm….


  • Justin

    I do agree with Marilina. P.S. the tupac one looked way better.

  • 55vineyard

    Sorry but I did not care for that song, he has done much better.
    Also I agree with letting him rest in peace.

  • Louise


    I very much agree, I CANT STAND how they are trying to make money off songs he didn’t release himself for one reason or another. I just find the whole thing weird and in bad taste.

  • fardous

    its great to say they are trying make him alive or making more money out him , still liking it , there will never some1 like him again

  • Kerry Louise

    They keep on exploiting this poor Man, even after his mysterious death. The record company executives (likely of the Jewish faith) should be incarcerated in a Federal prison.

  • Ha

    This was SO unnecessary. Leave the guy rest in peace. As most commenters above stated, he’s done his music and it’s his legacy that will forever live on through it. That’s it. There’s no need to try and bring him back. Ugh. All his fans should understand that. And sad thing is, people criticized him so damn much when he was alive and now they make him a hologram. Leave him at peace! Who’s next??? Aaliyah!????!????

  • Ha

    His face is not well done. Doesn’t look like him.

  • geez

    I agree with everyone leave Michael and his legacy be! We know who he was and Michael left us with great music and many ground breaking videos for us to cherish his memory from and we the real fans don’t need corporate greedy suits pushing holograms of the King of Pop. I believe the music industry is in a hole due to lack of talent & true visionaries and has gone to pot and they’re trying to salvage some relevancy by profiting off Michael’s life work. Unless this album was started by him and unfinished due to his untimely death I say leave him be out of respect for the perfectionist himself, his children and his fans.

  • Emma

    That is SICK, and not the good kind of sick. This is trying to ignore the limits of nature, and it’s all wrong…

    I don’t like the song, but I liked the hologram performance. I thought it was done in good taste. As long as they don’t try to do a whole world tour using this hologram to exploit and make more money off of the deceased. If this was a one time thing, then I don’t see a problem with it. Like the show in Vegas, it keeps Michael’s spirit alive when you hear his music.

  • jen

    is it ok that i find this creepy? it’s future-oriented and whatnot, but in a very bizarre way. not that cool to watch, just weird because HE IS DEAD. let it go.

  • Michael

    @Kerry Louise:
    and so should you for spreading such hate.

  • Jermaine

    A hologram cannot replace Michael, but the music is Michael’s music! It is amazing what can be done with technology now, but it should also be a warning for what trickery could be done in the future. A few of the songs on Xscape really hold their own! If you read the album you will see that sometimes these songs were just dropped because there wasn’t enough space or were being saved for future projects. This album is for the estate of Michael and is being dedicated to his children. Michael, though very talented and successful in his career was not the best with money and didn’t always have the right people around him. Some debts and maintenance may still remain to be covered.
