(AP) Pop diva Teresa Teng may not exactly have come back from the dead to perform in a widely hyped concert in her native Taiwan, but a computer generated likeness of the legendary singer sure left that impression among many of the 15,000 fans packing a Taipei arena.


Teng "appeared" onstage Friday night with local crooner and movie actor Jay Chou to perform three duets that enraptured the crowd. Her virtual presence was the result of a detailed recreation of Teng's mannerisms and expressions, painstakingly put together by Digital Domain 3.0, a California company specializing in digital imagery for the entertainment industry.


Teng, best known for folk songs and romantic ballads, had legions of fans throughout Asia and beyond. She died of a respiratory attack in 1995, aged 42.
