Stars including Christina Aguilera, X Factor’s Leona Lewis, Motown legend Smokey Robinson and JLS are set to perform at a Michael Jackson tribute show.
The line up for Cardiff’s Millenium Stadium show on October 8, paying tribute to the late King of pop, was announced last night.
Members of the Jackson family will also hit the stage, including several of the Jackson brothers and the group 3T, who are Tito Jackson’s sons.
Rockers Alien Ant Farm and British RnB institution Craig David will also be on the bill.
More acts will be announced in the next few days.

The executive of promoters Global Live Events, Paul Ring said: “This concert will unite various generations and musical genres, reminding everyone of just how amazing a talent Michael was.”
The line up was due to be announced last week but it wasn’t, leaving scores of fans angry at the organiser.
Michael’s brothers, Randy and Jermaine also said they couldn’t support the concert because it takes place during the trial of their brother’s doctor, Conrad Murray, who is charged with manslaughter.
They said: “The most important tribute we can give to our brother at this time is to seek justice in his name.”
The concert has the full support of the star’s mother and other brothers and sisters.
A Jackson tribute concert was planned to take place in Vienna in 2009, but it was cancelled when organizers failed to book any big names to play.
