Jamie Foxx will host the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales next month.
The Hollywood actor will also perform at the event at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on October 8.
Foxx told MTV News: “Michael was larger than life and I have admired him, honoured him, joked about him but always loved and respected him.
“I hope I honour his legacy in a way that would make him laugh and cry.”
The gig will also feature performances from Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Craig David.
Many members of Jackson's family have endorsed the tribute gig, although his brothers Jermaine and Randy have claimed its timing is inappropriate.
Meanwhile, David Gest has announced details of a Michael Jackson tribute tour, which will take place at venues across the UK and Europe next year.
