Yes that's right, for the 16-year old, 5 ft. 2in. tall singing sensation with thousands of fans, is not a human but a 3D hologram!

The brainchild of Crypton Future Media, the digital singing diva can be downloaded and programmed to sing any song the customer likes.

Hatsune, who uses the voice from Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita to 'talk' has become so popular that she now has a hit single and is currently on a sold-out concert tour, performing on stage just like any other pop star, complete with a live band and thousands of cheering fans.

She has also guest starred in a number of popular Japanese anime shows and upon the request of 14,000 fans had her image etched onto three metal plates that were carried to Space aboard the Japanese Spaceship Akatuki, that launched in March 2010.

While the young teenager currently croons only Japanese songs, she is scheduled to make her English song debut soon - So don't be surprised if you get an invite to watch Hatsune Miku - Live in Concert, soon!
