Now, we have a sneak peek of the computer-generated entity — and it's creepy as hell.
Debuting on This Morning yesterday (February 19), the new holographic Whitney performed a section of Houston's "Greatest Love of All" live on air. The footage later made it to Twitter, where most of the reactions have been rightfully distraught, with some users calling the ghostlike thing disrespectful.
The most common reaction among users is that they absolutely do not wish to see the hologram head out on tour — which it is most certainly is doing starting on February 25.
Houston's sister-in-law Pat had previously spoken in support of the hologram, saying, "It's a great opportunity for her fans to see a reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history and to continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come. I look forward to the partnership."
The hologram begins the "An Evening with Whitney" trek around Europe next week. You can see her (its?) upcoming dates here.

I'm not saying the Whitney Houston hologram tour will be a hot mess, but they are suggesting she had as much grace as a malfunctioning The Sims character wafting away a fart on #ThisMorning pic.twitter.com/9uJJCnCfTZ— Mr Adam Remain 🇪🇺 (@MrAdamR) February 19, 2020

Whitney Houston hologram on This Morning. Looks nothing like her, and doesn't look at all real. Just looks like a big TV screen playing a slightly laggy video of a lookalike.— Charles Thomson (@CEThomson) February 19, 2020
Whitney Houston wanted to die so that you could profit off of her posthumously by creating a hologram tour with Playstation 1 graphics? Chile...the delusion. https://t.co/QPjkZQ8G97 pic.twitter.com/3nsoN12ji0— Simply the Mess (@TeaNlemonade) February 19, 2020
