“I am truly honored to be working with Global Live Events and the Jackson family members in participating in this epic event,” he told Us Weekly. “Michael was larger than life and I have admired him, honored him, joked about him but always loved and respected him … I hope I honor his legacy in a way that would make him laugh and cry.”
And as far as Beyonce not showing up, the rumor isn’t true. The superstar is planning to be there and said she’s fully committed to the project.
She’s going to record a “unique, never before seen performance” that will be played at the tribute.
Others include Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo, Smokey Robinson, and plenty more.
