Will you tune into the Michael Jackson tribute concert?

| More

October 8 will represent a star-studded event as numerous celebs will gather to honor the late-Michael Jackson. The event will be hosted by Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and feature performances by Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Leona Lewis, Ne-Yo, Craig David, Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke, Alien Ant Farm and Smokey Robinson.

Even though it should be a special evening, not everyone is actually delighted about the tribute. In fact, some of Jackson’s siblings have expressed displeasure over the tribute which will take place in the midst of the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial. Furthermore, Facebook petitions have appeared over ticket controversies and Global Live Events (the show’s promoter) reportedly censoring negative fan comments on the event’s official page.

Do you plan to watch the Michael Jackson tribute? Or do you think it’s bad timing?
