J-Pop Star (and 3-D Hologram) Hatsune Miku Sells Out Stadiums
“Hatsune Miku has topped the pop charts in Japan, sold out stadium concerts and become a legitimate cultural phenomenon. The interesting thing is that Miku doesn’t exist — at least not in any traditional sense of the word. Miku is a computer-generated avatar that performs songs with the help of a live band. But unlike say, Gorillaz, a cartoon band that merely serves as the public face of an artistic collective, everything about Miku comes from a computer. She is the product of a company called Crypton Future Media, which synthesizes Miku’s voice using Yamaha’s Vocaloid software.”
In the future, ‘entertainment’ will be robots singing to robots.

    Oh Japan. Although to be fair, this really is just the natural progression of the current state of entertainment....
