Take a trip to the uncanny valley with the reanimated King of Pop.

Taking their grotesque reanimation of the dead King of Pop to a literal level, Epic Records decided to promote its new posthumous Michael Jackson album Xscape with a ghoulish hologram performance at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards.

The MJ hologram, unpleasantly stuck in the uncanny valley, performed Xscape's "Slave To The Rhythm." Appropriately dressed in Dangerous-era garb, the hologram pulled off all of Jackson's most iconic dance moves, as graceless as possible and devoid of all spontaneity.
