Michael Jackson Hologram Brought Singer's Brother To Tears

Michael Jackson’s appearance as a hologram at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards was overwhelming for brother Jackie Jackson.

“Beautiful, unbelievable,” Jackie said of the “Slave to the Rhythm” performance, which featured a hologram of his late brother interacting with real dancers.

“I thought he was there for real,” the Jackson 5 singer told Access Hollywood’s Liz Hernandez. “I got teary eyed a little bit.”

“The choreography around him was great, just unbelievable,” he continued.

As for mom Katherine, Jackie thinks the performance would weigh heavy on her.
