Christina Aguilera will not be performing with the hologram of Whitney Houston during The Voice finale.

Whitney Houston & Christina Aguilera

It was expected that The Voice finale next Tuesday would feature a historic duet between Aguilera and Houston’s hologram, which would be making its official debut. However, the hologram performance has been axed after those behind the hologram saw footage of he duet and believed that it wasn’t up to snuff.

Pat Houston, the executor of Houston’s estate, confirmed that the performance – which was slated to feature a medley including “I’m Every Woman” and “I Have Nothing” – would not go on as planned and explained the reasoning.

“We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists,” the statement read. “Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect.

The statement added, “Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection. After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.”

Once Houston’s hologram is perfected, it’s believed that it will complete a national arena tour.

Houston died Feb. 12, 2012. She was 48.
