Ariana Grande replaces Whitney Houston hologram in Christina Aguilera duet – watch

The pair performed on the series finale of 'The Voice US'

Ariana Grande filled in for a hologram of Whitney Houston during her performance with Christina Aguilera on American TV last night.

The pair duetted on the season finale of the US version of talent show The Voice.

A hologram of the late Houston was due to be included in the show, but plans for the performance were scrapped. Houston’s family said the hologram fell short of perfection, according to Billboard, and shouldn’t be used.


Instead, Grande joined Aguilera, one of the show’s mentors, to perform the title track from the former’s new album, ‘Dangerous Woman’. Grande also sang ‘Into You’, which is taken from the same record.

Recently, Grande hit out at degrading song lyrics, claiming that the music industry has double standards when it comes to break-up songs written by women rather than men.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “When men talk about women in songs it’s like, ‘Oh, hell yeah, hos and bitches’.

“And if a girl makes a song about a break-up then it’s like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe she did that’, or, ‘What a slut’.”
