Not to be outdone, Sony unveiled a new technology featuring epic artist Madison Beer at CES on Monday: which at least looks a lot like a real live concert.

Performing. It still looks like a sophisticated animation, every year it is getting closer to look like real life.
In full performance, Beer Avatar will serve as a medal of the song as an avatar from his debut album “Life Support” on Epic Records.
