*Beyonce Knowles has been added to the growing lineup of performers at the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert.
The singer has now been confirmed for the Michael Forever event, which is scheduled to take place at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on Oct. 8. However, “scheduling issues” will prevent her from performing in person.
Bey will instead perform a Jackson 5 number via satellite.
Writing on their Facebook page, promoters of the concert confirmed: “BEYONCE Beams Into Michael Forever Tribute!! A unique, never-before-seen performance by Beyonce of one of her favorite Jackson 5 songs will be shown at the concert on October 8th! A lifelong Michael fan, Beyonce really wanted to be involved in this tribute concert. Due to scheduling issues she can’t be there in person, but this performance is not to be missed!”
Also confirmed to perform are Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Cee-Lo Green, Leona Lewis, Craig David and Alien Ant Farm — who had their own hit with a rock cover of MJ’s “Smooth Criminal” in 2001.
Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Kanye West and Bey’s husband Jay-Z have also been asked to perform at the event.
