Simon Cowell rarely performs on stage, but when he does, something truly bizarre and spectacular bounds to happen. This time is no different, as Cowell was about to rock the stage of America Got Talent alongside two other judges: Sofia Vergara and Heidi Klum, and one other special guest.

And, to everyone’s surprise, the special guest we’re talking about is Elvis Presley himself, who returned from the dead to grace the stage one more time.

All jokes aside, the legendary artist didn’t literally come back, but thanks to modern technology advancement and the magic of AI deepfake, we got to see the closest version of Elvis’ iteration to perform live. This groundbreaking moment occurred during the first episode of the America’s Got Talent finale on September 13, 2022.

Metaphysic, a company at the forefront of AI technology in entertainment, has been dazzling the show with their lifelike projections of musical legends, put on another performer’s face. Their latest act brought the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll back to the stage, leaving the judges in awe and sending the crowd into a frenzy.

The performance kicked off with Elvis’ iconic “Hound Dog,” setting the auditorium on fire with excitement. The audience was treated to Elvis’ signature moves, making it feel as though the legend himself was performing live.

The highlight, however, was when a digital Simon Cowell appeared on screen to join in with “You’re The Devil In Disguise,” leaving the real Cowell speechless and rooted to the spot. The digital Cowell and Elvis exchanged verses, while Klum and Vergara provided backup, swaying to the rhythm.

In the end, Vergara couldn’t hide her excitement, praising the act as “amazing” and “so much fun.” Cowell, momentarily dumbfounded, eventually declared it “the most incredible and original act we’ve ever had on the show.” Simon, you should really see your face back then.

Metaphysic aims to showcase the potential of AI in entertainment by blending technology with traditional performance art. The AGT performance, a collaborative effort with AGT alum Daniel Emmet, demonstrated their innovative approach to live entertainment, projecting AI-generated images to create a memorable show. This venture into live performance marks a new chapter for the company, traditionally known for its online content.

Well, clearly their endeavor has been fully welcomed by everyone, even Simon Cowell himself.
