Gorillaz and Madonna at the Grammys (2006)
Gorillaz may not be the world's first virtual band, but it was certainly the first one to perform "live" at the Grammy Awards — and with eternal pop legend Madonna, no less.
People who tuned in to the 2006 Grammy Awards witnessed an onstage performance featuring Gorillaz (via holographic projection), De La Soul (in real life), and Madonna (projection and real life) in a Feel Good Inc./Hung mashup.
