Watch M.I.A. and Janelle Monae Perform Together as Holograms

MIA Janelle Monae Hologram

Janelle Monae and MIA perform together as holograms

Today in "things that really happened" news, M.I.A. and Janelle Monae performed sort-of-together at two parties for the launch of the Audi A3. One was in New York and one was in L.A., and with both artists performing on different stages on different coasts at the same time, they were holographically beamed into each other's performances. If you need proof that this happened IRL and not in the bizarro future world in which both women probably actually live, you can watch video - Monae adds a verse to "Bad Girls;" Maya to "Q.U.E.E.N."
