Digital Domain 3.0 created this virtual performance which stunned 15,000 fans at a live concert in Taipan. "Virtual" Teresa Teng, a computer-generated likeness of the iconic Taiwanese Chinese singer who passed away in 1995, delivered a surprise performance as part of pop sensation Jay Chou's "Opus 12" shows at the Taipei Arena. Dressed in an ethereal looking white gown, "virtual" Teresa Teng again appeared at subsequent Chou shows. "Virtual" Teresa Teng performed three songs in an original duet with Chou, his hits "Red Tavern" and "Thousand Miles Away," and her hit "What You Have to Say," at the Taipei Arena.
