Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green, and JLS have signed on to headlines the star-studded Michael Jackson tribute concert, “Michael Forever,” set for this October in Wales, organizers said Thursday.
Also joining the lineup is the band Alien Ant Farm, which is known for its cover of Jackson’s song “Smooth Criminal.”
The Oct. 8 show at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales is being endorsed by the singer’s mother and some of his siblings.
Another Billboard record looms for Katy Perry. If the card-carryin’ “California Gurl’s” latest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) shoots to No. 1 on the Hot 100, she’ll join Michael Jackson as one of only two artists to earn five No. 1 hits from one album. The feat would be a first for a female artist in the chart’s 52-year history.
Park it, Inspector Gadget. La Toya’s on the case. Proving once more that Jessica Fletcher’s got nothing on her, Michael Jackson’s controversial sister, La Toya Jackson, is calling for further investigation into the June 2009 death of her brother, King of Pop Michael Jackson, who La Toya believes was murdered over the catalogue of music he owned.
