Hatsune Miku

Thousands of fans flock to stadiums across the world to see Hatsune Miku, a digital popstar.

Hatsune Miku is an animated singer, who is the visual element of Crypton Future Media's Hatsune Miku synthetic voice software. Miku performs songs created by her fans, along with a (real) live band. Users are able to create their own songs using the software, which uses Yamaha's vocaloid technology, and have Miku's synthesised voice perform for them. Miku is essentially a crowd-sourced celebrity.
