LOS ANGELES (AP) — The owners of technology used to create holograms are asking a federal judge to block the use of their techniques in any effort to project a Michael Jackson hologram at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards.

Hologram USA Inc. and Musion Das Hologram Ltd. sued Jackson's estate and producers of the awards show on Thursday in a Nevada federal court in an attempt to block any appearance of a Jackson hologram at Sunday's ceremony.

Producers have not confirmed that a Jackson hologram will appear at the show, but they have promised a history-making performance by Jackson.

Representatives of Jackson's estate and show producers dick clark productions did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

The Jackson segment during Sunday's show in Las Vegas will be used to promote the singer's latest posthumous album, "Xscape."
