Jackie Jackson said he cried while watching his late brother Michael Jackson come to life via hologram at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night.

The eldest Jackson sibling thinks choreographers Rich and Tone Talauega did an ”amazing” job in making the virtual likeness of the King of Pop so convincing as he performed “Slave to Rhythm.”

Jackie told Billboard: ”When he started walking and dancing, I was teary-eyed. It’s hard to please Michael’s fans and Michael… I’m telling you it’s amazing.”

There had been a huge demand for a hologram performance from Michael, but John Branca, the executor of the late star’s estate, felt the music awards show was the perfect setting.

He said: “It’s so important to experience Michael Jackson in a live setting. This is something where we wanted a live performance in front of a live audience and nothing speaks to that more than an awards show.”
