First it was Tupac, and now it’s Michael Jackson.  Technology is taking center stage, literally, by bringing back the dead in either a duet or a choreographed live music video performance.  At the end of the whole fiasco, it spells more money and entertainment.  Postmortem album sales and merchandising have struck a nerve in artistic integrity, and the question demands a viral concensus: Should we allow these types of performances to occur, and are we disrespecting the artist when we allow ourselves to become captivated by an artificial CGI performance of themselves?
