Whitney Houston‘s estate has canceled her scheduled hologram performance alongside Christina Aguilera on The Voice‘s season 10 finale next Tuesday (May 24).
Footage from the surprise pre-taped performance had leaked on Thursday (May 19) but the executor for Whitney‘s estate, Pat Houston, is now saying the duet will not air.
“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,” Pat told ET.
