Hatsune Miku Performance Method Revealed!

We have posted previously on the up coming "Live" concert performance of Hatsune Miku, everyone's favorite virtual idol. What was most intriguing was how they would pull off the stage pretense of the character. Apparently they went "Half-Gorillaz." There were no live instruments or a backing band, but they did have a Giant screen projecting Miku's image and performance. My question now would be, was it truly "Live" i.e. did they have the synth making the music in real time? Or, was it pre-recorded, and everyone was duped into watching a movie?
