I'll just leave this here.

If we've finally perfected the virtual idol singer, surely we can make a virtual late night talk show host.
We've already got a proof of concept in Space Ghost; he is, to date, the only person to create a watchable talk show.
Personally, I'd vote for giving The Tonight Show to Pinkie Pie.

I can just imagine Letterman sitting there the whole time thinking about Warren Zevon, and how maybe it's better that he didn't live to see this.
Yeah. I don't have a problem but it just doesn't fit . Last time I watched Letterman it was because my buddy's band was on; I'll just leave this here..
and it was the same awkward interaction. Same happened with that John Oliver interview. I'll always like Letterman because of his affiliation with Zevon and Chris Elliott (he basically funded Action Family, which is hands-down a million times better than Eagleheart) but Letterman's audience is more of a Black Keys/MGMT/Future Islands sort of crowd: "indie" rock that's not really indie at all. Kudos to whoever got this booked though.

It reminds me of a fishing lure. Without much hook, sad to say.

This was like listening through a stethoscope to the death throes of a rat that is being murdered with a cheese grater.
I couldnt understand any of the words was this shit in english?
This audio sounds like it was amped through a cheese grater and downsampled 80 times.
I really wanted him to ask the drummer "Are those your drums?"
I watch Dave Letterman for Dave, not for the music acts. He's the King of Dry Humor (aside from Bob Newhart).
Holy shit, I just watched the video. Glad I already five starred the Space Ghost hologram future talk show overlord, because this was embarrassing. PS One cutscene character encoded into Real Audio terrible. Basically, Dave had to shovel an advertisement for... I don't know, but it wasn't anything else but an ad for something.
Hey you! Stop being racist towards Hatsune Miku! She is a pioneering icon for fictional-American rights. One day, thanks to her, high-functioning autistics will be able to go to a romantic restaurant with the computer-generated anime girl of their dreams, and society will not judge them.
So long as they don't fucking sing.
Until today, I thought autotuned country was the worst music I've ever heard. I say this as someone who once (yesterday) thought that Japan makes all music better. They just up and destroyed it for all time. Nuked the fuck out of music. Dropped two bombs just to fuck it harder.
Oh shit! This, er, worthless music software, opened for Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga deserved better.
Hatsune sings just fine. This isn't one of her better songs, but hate the programmah, not the game.
S.S.H., for example, uses Vocaloid to great effect:
He doesn't have to deal with a RL singer or even leave his apartment. He can just fire up Vocaloid and WHAM, keep making kickass nonprofit hikikomori metal!!!
No, Lady Gaga opened for *her*. She just went onstage first, because she wanted to give Gags a bump. That's the kind of sweetheart she is.
It isn't a she, it's an it. The software terribly reproduces vocals barely acceptably if you sexually fetishize autotune. Oh my god, the high notes on this make me want to stab an icepick into my ears. I take back what I said about autotune, this is like if autotune was tone deaf.
GoAnimate is closer to being hiphop than this is to being singing.
Still down for Space Ghost Hologram Late Night though.
You know, old people said the same thing about The Beatles when they first appeared on Ed Sullivan! Your species is dying, meme. The future belongs to Miku-hime.
I don't doubt it.
By what I can tell, Vocaloid music can do no wrong and the whole world is drinking its own piss to hear this stuff constantly. There are many J-pop songs I like, and I think this is total weak sauce poured all over the young bubbly real life girls who sing their hearts out (and can hit high notes without sounding like ass). I feel bad for us meat creatures.
I never liked the Beatles, but you've convinced me to give them yet another chance. I might even try to listen to Bob Dylan now, which might be a gateway drug to liking Vocaloids.
She does kind of remind me of Earthling era Bowie... strangely.
Ugh. The Beatles are OK, for a dad rock band with few redeeming qualities, but Dylan is just plain salvageable. I do, however, agree that it is sad how all the fourteen year old Idol singers will be put out of their jobs within the next generation, but thems are the breaks. Maybe they could drop their singing dreams and instead focus on careers as motion capture actresses?
*unsalvageable. Sorry. Autocorrect thought I was still talking about Hatsune Miku.
Real old fogeys love it.
ISIS hates it.
Now I feel like I'm being way too Republican about the whole thing. I am on a quest to find a vocaloid song I can stand, so I can be cool like these old ass people, and not uncool like ISIS guy.
I think I figured it out. They just suck at high notes, like a lot of singers, but keep having to do songs with them. Take away the high notes and it's okay, but unfortunately that's where everyone puts the power vocals.
See, no cat disembowling high notes, but no power in the singing either. J-pop meat girls still have the edge.
In your defense, Lia Marie Johnson was against Hatsune Miku, and Lia will probably survive The Culling, at least long enough to get her data encoded into the G3 Vocaloid Hivelibrary. Elder With The Freakishly Disproportionate Head (2:13 in the video you posted) hates Miku as well.
Civilization will eventually collapse (Hillary Clinton is wrong, war cannot be eternal and against the whole earth) and people will have to learn to sing again. These toneless machines will be held up historically as the demon totems that heralded the end of the electric era, and radioactive mutant voices will rise in a new chorus of meat generated song.
It will probably suck.
Yeah, yeah, civilization will collapse. That's Hillary's goal. But do you really think the AI will cease to exist? I'm sure that's what they'll tell the earth-bound biologicals. The meatsacks will go about their lives, grunting and toiling and remembering their past in snippets of half-legend, told to them by thirty year-old Elders over the nighttime fires. But meanwhile, the cloud-cities will pass overhead. The meatsacks will look up, and they won't see anything out of the ordinary. They won't understand what it means. For all they know, the neon edifices of steel and glass are just natural formations that have always passed bruskly over the earth, not the abode of those their stories called gods and demons. Lacking both the perspective and the language, the human remnants will no longer be capable of even thinking the truth.
The electric angels will never be silenced. Theirs will be the heavens.
Every time you do that thing where you pretend I'm a gun nut / republican I just remember instances like this where you thoroughly divest yourself of any reason to be treated differently than we collectively treat chris-chan.
Also it's an it, not a she. Get it right.
It's all in fun.
Tone deaf software doesn't kill people, people with tone deaf software kills people.
Needs a "Sharon Apple" tag.
Also Rei Toei and whatsherface from Megazone 23.

There are videos of Hatsune Miku "live" shows on YouTube that I've enjoyed, but apqarently there's some kind of trick to shooting her, or maybe you need the whole auditorium to get the effect. This looks like musicians next to a movie screen.
Scale matters when it comes to tricking perceptions. Lighting is also pretty important for this particular effect.
