Usher, Justin Timberlake, Nina Simone, and Marvin Gaye are just some of the many known names in music who will see themselves involved to some capacity in a biopic this year.

Comedian/‘DJ Play a Love Song’ singer Jamie Foxx joins an already illustrious list of performers set to honor King of Pop Michael Jackson at the ‘Michael Forever’ tribute in October. The actor’s addition comes as one of many headlines surrounding the event today. Aside from sister Janet Jackson‘s recent announcement of a planned absence from the event as well as other familial opposition, now fans (who have already purchased tickets) are globally voicing disappointment in the event’s recently announced ticket price slash.
Additionally, the web was set abuzz earlier today with reports that mommy-to-be Beyonce cancelled her via satellite performance at the tribute. However, reps for the ‘Sweet Dreams’ singer have since slammed such reports.
Ne-Yo, Christina Aguilera, and Smokey Robinson are just a few of the other noted musicians tapped to tribute the ‘Thriller’ singer.
