The big news from Coachella 2012 was the virtual resurrection of Tupac Shakur as a "hologram" during Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's headlining performances. The image of Shakur that "performed" with Snoop wasn't a true hologram – it was basically an elaborate 2D projection – but the Internet nevertheless ran with the term and we're probably stuck with it. There has been some suggestion that Dr. Dre will eventually take the virtual Shakur on the road, perhaps emboldened by the success of an ongoing concert tour featuring a hologram version of Elvis Presley. It seems like we're bound to see more and more dead stars return to stages as holograms down the line, so we asked you who you'd like to see come back to the stage in this form.
