Hatsune Miku recently wowed a glow stick-wielding crowd at Toronto's Sony Centre — but we knew the blue-haired pop phenomenon would never set foot in studio q

We don't hold it against the 16-year-old singer. She is, after all, only a hologram. 

q producer Rachel Matlow navigated the energetic crowds to watch and try to "meet" Hatsune Miku. Listen to her field report and tell us: would you ever go watch a computer generated performer?
