If you’re like us, you still haven’t picked your jaw up off the floor after witnessing the Tupac hologram at Coachella in 2012. While 2013 left us in lack-of-hologram disappointment, we can only hope there’s a place for more of the overpriced technology with some of this year’s acts. Here are a few suggestions:

Lorde & Amy Winehouse


The cost of an Amy Winehouse hologram will probably be steep because there’s a huge chance—dead or alive—that she won’t show up. So take the risk, Coachella! But there’s no denying seeing these two awkward, Morticia Adams look-a-likes singing "Team" would be epic—Mainly because Lorde already looks dead.

Outkast & Elvis

We can envision it now: all the pelvic thrusting and hair spray to last for weeks! If Andre 3000 and Elvis perform a mash-up of "Hey Ya" and "Hound Dog," we’ll rush out and immediately get bell bottoms and perms.

Skrillex & Aaliyah


This could make people actually like brostep. Well, probably not. But still, watching the princess of R&B, Aaliyah, rock the boat to the sounds of transformers having sex could attract a new audience to the genre. Maybe they’ll actually buy Skrillex’s new album. Naaaahhht! [Borat voice]

Empire of the Sun & Etta James


It’s an eyeliner showdown! With Etta’s sultry cat eyes and Luke Steele’s galactic eye paint, these two could make Cover Girl babies for eternity. But even more impressive would be a collab of James’ "At Last" and Empire of the Sun’s "Alive." Because we’re demented.

HAIM & Whitney Houston


HAIM has said repeatedly in interviews that they sweat profusely … and so did Whitney Houston’s upper lip! Whitney’s upbeat "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" and HAIM’s "Forever" blended together would make for a workout wetter than the camera lens in The Blair Witch Project. For those close to the stage, this could turn into a 4D experience.

Disclosure & Selena


You can’t say Selena performing "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" with Disclosure on instrumentals wouldn’t be the s***! Imagine Selena’s slow vocal build on "Como La Flor" and her deep-voiced “peroooo” and brothers Guy and Howard rocking the hell out of those steel drums when the beat drops. Perfection!
