Jamie Foxx is an Oscar and Grammy award winner and has made millions laugh doing comedy on stage and TV. If there is anyone that could match up to the talent that Michael Jackson had as an entertainer, it would be Jamie Foxx as a comedian. Jamie Foxx tops our short list of A-listers that would be a complimenting host.
Now for the Drama: Organizers were told to take back their original offer to Gene Simmons and the Kiss Band because of harshly criticizing Michael Jackson in the past years. This show has nothing to do with the Jackson family but are said to be attending the concert.
The Tribute Concert is scheduled for Oct. 8 in Cardiff, Wales.
