One hologram performance is enough for the year, and we're already put that behind us with Tupac's Coachella reincarnation. Now Usher is jumping on the virtual performance bandwagon—he'll be appearing with digital backup dancers in a concert next month in London.

Brush off your Harlem Shake and ready your Roger Rabbit, because you can be one of them, if you would like to sink to Usher's level of self-indulgent douchery. Concert director Hamish Hamilton told the New York Times:

"Literally, people will be able to create their own avatar and have it dance on screen with Usher."


Literally, Hamish, most people are awful dancers. Usher on the other hand has amazing moves, so this squad of holograms will make him look even better by comparison. You can tune into the show on June 11 at 4 p.m. EST on Usher's YouTube page. Just in case anyone has forgotten, at one point in time, Usher was a talented, serious R&B artist. And now he's kind of a tool. [New York Times via @Slate]
