If you thought you saw a ghost at Coachella, you weren't alone: Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg performed alongside a very realistic hologram of late rap legend Tupac Shakur to cap off their set Sunday, and RadarOnline.com has video in case you weren't there.

The performance (which includes graphic language) was touted as a unique blend of entertainment and technology that had the Internet abuzz over the weekend.

Trending phrases on Twitter early Monday included: #nowthat2pacsback, #HolographicTupac, Pac and Snoop Dogg, among others. 

Celebs at the music festival, held annually in Coachella, Calif., were impressed with the innovation that allowed hundreds to simulate catching Tupac in concert.

Katy Perry wrote, "I think I might have cried when I saw Tupac. #Coachella" while her pal Rihanna tweeted, "#TupacBACK#unbelievable #IWASTHERE #STORY4myGrandKidz."

Eminem, 50 Cent, Warren G, Wiz Khalifah and Kendrick Lamar also performed in the set, which included a memorial to the late rapper Nate Dogg.

Shakur, who would be 40-years-old if alive today, died in September 1996 in an unsolved shooting in Las Vegas.
