Jamie Foxx Joins Michael Jackson Tribute

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.

    I agree!

    Or they should just cancel it, until they can confirm more guest to bring some excitement to the event.

    This whole thing sounds like a hotmess.com! 🙁

    I was so happy to read Beyonce pulled out of that , especially considering the lineup and the fact that it was via satellite ..But i understand it will assure her visibility for ” 4 ” during that pregnancy
