Jamie Foxx to host Jackson tribute

Los Angeles - Jamie Foxx has been named to host the Michael Jackson tribute concert planned for October in Wales.

Foxx's spokesperson said on Monday that the Oscar-winning star of Ray would host Michael Forever - The Tribute Concert. It is scheduled for October 8 in Cardiff, Wales.

Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson and Cee Lo Green are among the show's announced performers.

The show is not affiliated with Michael Jackson's estate, but Jackson's mother, Katherine, and other Jackson family members are scheduled to attend.

Organizers had to rescind an offer to the band Kiss last month after fans and Jackson's estate noted that singer-bassist Gene Simmons had harshly criticised the pop singer over the years.
