It’s always fascinating to see what our favorite musicians do with technology and M.I.A. and Janelle Monaé both appeared at each other’s concerts last night (April 3) via holograms.

Both hitmakers were on opposite coasts for their own respective gigs, and their audiences were blown away by the futuristic duets.

Following her show at Quixote Studios, Janelle told press, “I wish I were in the audience because I’m sure it looked cooler from the audience, but it felt great. I felt M.I.A.’s spirit up there.”

Likewise, M.I.A. was excited with how things turned out. “I think if you can have artists be a hologram and you can access it, and you have them life-size, in your house, it could be kind of cool. It’s definitely cool for us and it’s cool for me. I could be in 10 places at once.”
