victorxcx posted a topic in Arcade(Source: RIAA) Saw it on a site and thought it was very interesting. I already imagined that 'Come On Over' should be the best selling female album on United States as it is worldwide, but i was very surprised to see the lack of albums by Madonna, Céline Dion, Barbra Streisand etc. Which of these albums are your favorites? Which albums you thought that were featured here but aren't? I really stan the Shania, Britney and Jewel albums on this list
Any Whitney Houston fans who were planning on tuning into Monday's episode of The Voice will be left sorely disappointed after a planned duet between the late legend and the show's judge Christina Aguilera has been abruptly cancelled. The duet, in which Whitney would appear from beyond the grave via hologram and Christina would appear in person, was rumoured for some time, and moments from the performance were posted on Snapchat by curious audience members, before the collaboration was confirmed by TMZ. It wasn't promoted by the network, who wanted to keep Whitney's appearance as a surprise for Monday's seson finale. But the duet was pulled two days ago, after Whitney's estate saw the performance for the first time. Allegedly they thought that the hologram technology was not up to par and that the figure "didn't look like Whitney" - a sentiment echoed by many fans online. Pat Houston, executor of the estate and Whitney's sister in law, said in a statement: The saddest part of the situation is that Christina served her best live vocals in years during the show - something which even the The Voice producers and Whitney's estate can agree on. Aguilera has made no secret of her admiration for the icon, and in 2001 she performed another tribute to the superstar when she performed 'Run To You' live on TV. News of a Whitney hologram was first announced last year, when plans were made to develop a tour with the technology to tour around America. Back then, Pat Houston stated that the hologram will be a “reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history” and will “continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come”. What do you think of the Whitney and Christina duet? Were they right to cancel it, given Whitney's somewhat dodgy appearance? Or should the performance have made it to air given XTina's vocals?

Countess posted an article in NewsIn the first occurrence of its kind, an announcement today confirmed that a holographic depiction of the late Whitney Houston is set to travel the world on a concert tour throughout 2016. Announced by Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager of her estate, and Hologram USA, who patents the holographic technology in America, the concert will follow in the tradition of other legendary deceased singers who have made appearances from beyond the grave through the use of the groundbreaking technology, including Michael Jackson, 2Pac and Frank Sinatra. Houston stated that the hologram will be a “reinvention of one the most celebrated female artists in history” and will “continue a legacy of performances that will not be forgotten in years to come”. The announcement comes just days after Hologram USA announced that a show featuring a hologram of renowned jazz singer Billie Holiday will open later this year at the iconic Apollo Theatre in Harlem. Holiday passed in 1959 after liver and heart disease brought on from excessive alcohol and drug consumption, while Houston, herself, drowned in 2012 following habitual cocaine use. What do you think? Will the new Whitney hologram be ‘Queen of the Night’, or does this new ploy just reek of gimmicky disrespect? Let us know what you think in the comments down below!
