you think you're big in Japan

Meet Hatsune Miku. Err, well, you can't actually meet "her," because "she's" a hologram. Yep, a hologram, that happens to be the biggest pop star to hit Japan in years, selling out massive coliseums on her latest tour.

Not only is she not real, neither is her voice, which is made using a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media. And we thought auto-tune was was a pop star's best friend.

Not sure if this is ridiculously awesome, or a sign of the apocalypse. Either way, Gaga, Ke$ha, and the Biebs better step it up if this is the future of music.
