Jamie Foxx to host Michael Jackson tribute show

Tuesday September 13, 2011

Jamie Foxx has been named as the host of the Michael Jackson tribute concert planned for October in Cardiff.

Jamie's spokesman said the Oscar-winning star of Ray would host Michael Forever – The Tribute Concert on October 8.

Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson and Cee Lo Green are among the show's announced performers.

The event is not affiliated with Michael Jackson's estate, but Michael's mother Katherine and other Jackson family members are scheduled to attend.

Organisers had to rescind an offer to the band Kiss last month after fans and Michael Jackson's estate noted that singer-bassist Gene Simmons had harshly criticised the pop singer over the years.
