Today's technological advances can provide many wonderful benefits, including bringing the King of Pop back to life. During tonight's (May 18) 2014 Billboard Music Awards, a hologram version of Michael Jackson performed on the MGM Grand stage in Las Vegas.

Belting out his new tune "Slave to the Rhythm," Jackson showed off his signature dance moves and joined a bevy of backup dances for the incredible performance.

Prior to the live show, producers chatted about prepping for the epic event and said, "We've been talking about it for the last five months and while we were talking about it they were still inventing the process," BBMA director and producer Larry Klein said. "It was really strange talking about something that did not exist."

The track performed is off of Jackson's new album Xscape. It was recorded in 1991 with L.A. Reid and Babyface during the sessions for Michael's prior album Dangerous.
