Katherine Jackson has been courting some of music’s biggest stars in hopes of landing them to perform at a Michael Jackson tribute show on October 8, but so far only one performer has actually accepted the invitation.
Insiders in connection with the tribute concert say that Cee Lo, Christina Aguilera, Bruno Mars, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Usher have all received an invitation from Katherine to perform 1 or 2 of their favorite Michael Jackson songs at the concert.
Sources say that Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Chris Brown have all declined the invitation due to scheduling conflicts, but it sounds like Christina Aguilera and Kanye West are leaning towards participating in the event.
The sole person that has accepted the invitation is Cee Lo from Gnarls Barkley. Katherine has promised any star that signs on to perform “first class travel accommodations.”
Currently tickets for the event have not gone on sale yet and concert promoters say that they won’t be available until the lineup has been confirmed.
