Jamie Foxx is set to host a star-studded tribute concert to Michael Jackson.

The Oscar winning actor will present stars such as Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson and Cee Lo Green at the Michael Forever – The Tribute Concert, poised to take place on October 8 in Cardiff, Wales.

The event will be attended by Jackson's mother Katherine and other members of the Jackson family.

Other acts expected to perform include Craig David and rockers Alien Ant Farm.

The band Kiss were initially booked to perform but organisers had to withdraw the invitation after it was revealed that the band's singer-bassist Gene Simmons had criticised Jackson in the past.
