The X Factor is rumoured to planning to go all out for the next season of X Factor with rumoured duet weeks featuring holograms of deceased pop stars. The Sun newspaper reports that producers of X Factor want to reinvigorate the ailing ITV show by featuring Duets with pop stars of the past like Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Elvis Presley.

This will be made possible using revolutionary hologram technology. It is expected that they will use similar technology which enabled Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg to duet with Tupac at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival earlier this year.

X Factor bosses are planning this as ITV were rumoured to be considering axing X Factor, which although a mainstay of their Autumn / Winter Saturday night schedule, rating have nose dived in recent years, and more last year with Simon Cowell leaving the judging panel.

It is said that X Factor Boss Richard Holloway drew inspiration of a Celine Dion concert when she duet with a hologram of Stevie Wonder. An X Factor Insider said

“The X Factor has to keep getting better so they are looking at holograms as a way of creating a splash,”

The X Factor final would seem to be the perfect time for them to use the holograms. If they do put together duets with world greats like Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix it will be a real show stopper even Amy Winehouse is being consider, with her dad keen to keep her daughters musical legacy alive.

This said the man behind the Tupac hologram at Coachella does not think holograms can ever replace live performances.

The X Factor has begun auditions for the new series. Nicole Scherzinger has replaced Destiny Child’s star Kelly Rowland as a judge.

What do you think do you think holograms will be a good feature on the X Factor? Please comment below.
