Jimmy Kimmel proved last night that you really can be in two places at once… at least virtually. He did a double take appearing simultaneously on his show and at the Country Music Awards in Nashville, Singer Kacey Musgraves did the same.

Kimmel made the trip via hologram, which can project a seemingly 3D image through the use of technology.

“Tonight we’re making television history,” he told his studio audience. “Not only am I hosting this show here in Hollywood, we will also are being beamed right now to Nashville via hologram.”

Kimmel cut from his stage to the Country Music Hall of Fame in music city where the awards show was being held. After a quick countdown, his image appeared on stage with a burst of light.

The theme from the 1968 film “2001 a Space Odyssey” played in the background.

“Wow, I can’t believe it either,” he said.

Jimmy’s pal Guillermo, dressed as Princess Leia, joined him on both stages and he did a cool trick using a green screen.

In a second segment, country singer Musgraves joined Jimmy on his stage, also via hologram, for a guest appearance.

“I’m feeling very futuristic right now,” the singer said. “This is crazy.”

Indeed it was. Check out the videos below and be sure to follow IM on Twitter for the latest celebrity news.
