Hatsune singing at the London Olympics?!

Postby gcninja » 20 Feb 2012, 15:18

So theres been some rumors going around about Hatsune Miku possibly singing at the London Olympics. By that I mean people are pulling for it mostly, websites like http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/singers-perform-london-olympics-opening-ceremonies.asp have poll (which four of the top ten are Korean Pop bands as well) and even ZDnet did an article.
In my opinion I see no issue, her voice is computer generated, though from another singers own voice, not to mention people like Gorillaz never showed themselves. Besides look how big she is, concerts in Japan, UK, and the US. Not to mention being featured in Toyota commercials in America and Google even used her

So what's your opinion on this? Who would you rather have singing at the Olympics?

Having never heard of Hatsune Miku before, and just looking "her" up, I would be rather impressed to see her singing at the olympics.

Sorry, wait, concerts? She's had concerts? Voice synthesizing programs are cool, but seriously you guys.

Wasn't this the plot to Macross Plus with Sharon Apple? Yeah that turned out well!

She's from that whole Vocaloid malarkey, right? I've heard one song by Vocaloid, and I fell in love with it.

The Little Mermaid

I'm telling you, this is how the takeover starts. One minute we're all dancing along, the next we're providing slave labour to our new robot overlords!

You're missing the mid point step of: "We get to watch giant robot planes in kickass dog fights"

Miku would be good.

Megurine Luka = better.


1. She was the first English speaking vocaloid.

2. She is just better than Miku, period.
