Jamie Foxx

Signs On for MJ Tribute Concert

9/9/2011 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909_jamie_foxx_EX_01
Another HUGE addition to the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert ... TMZ has learned Jamie Foxx has signed on and will perform LIVE in Wales at the October show.

Foxx joins Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo, Smokey Robinson and others who are set to perform at the Oct. 8 show.

Sources connected to the show tell TMZ ... show organizers are pumped up about Beyonce's performance -- and insist she did NOT pull out, despite a report to the contrary.

We're told B is recording a "unique, never before seen performance" that will be played at the show ... just as she committed to do.

The only way I will watch this or care about this tribute concert if they sign on Britney, Jennifer Lopez, Elton John, Patti Labelle, Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Lady Gaga, Chris Brown, Barry Manilow, Stevie Wonder, Adam Lambert, Mary J. Blige, Lindsey Buckingham Stevie Nicks and Justin Timberlake to perform for this show!

The list of third class MJ freeloaders becomes bigger and bigger. Mass and quantity where there is no quality. But why should any of these wanna be's and has been's ever perform any Michael Jackson song? If you want to get media attention or to make money use your own name and your own stuff. And those of them who are close friends of the Jackson family should transfer money directly and privately to their accounts.

Why? He can't sing, he can't dance, he is old news and a has-been. The last tribute that I watched with Jamie Foxx right after MJ's death where he sang and did the moon-walk, was horrendous, boring, and just plain old pitiful. MAKE IT STOP, MAKE HIM GO AWAY, PLEASE.

When JF performed at the BET awards in 2009 it was a live performance which aired within 48-72 hours after Michael's passing. It was a total shock and miracle that the BET awards was able to put together anyting that fast in effort to honor michael's life. Jamie is a very gifted musician and vocialist who's bless with the gift of gab making his stand up comedy flat out hilarious at times.
Oh, I forgot to mention that Jamie studied classical music at USIU. (for you numb skulls that's United States International University)
Some of you people are such ignorant fools it's damn near comical..........

This is the last straw, really, Jamie Foxx is signing up for the Jackson Tribute. He can't get a job in town or what? The trial has started, forget about this Tribute concert. As far as I'm concerned, that's another ripoff like the Jackson Tribute Fragrances by Joe Jackson and Julian Rouas. Read the disturbing facts about it: http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com

This is yet ANOTHER MFT concert fiasco on a par with the KISS debacle. Jamie Foxx is a disgusting hypocrite. Go on YouTube and search for "Jamie Foxx on Michael Jackson." He MOCKS Michael Jackson -- like so many other comedians at the time -- talking about him being unrecognizable because "he tore up his face so much," and mocking his dance moves. It was shameful and disgusting.

And LaToya and her Global Live Events posse pick THIS GUY to host the Money Forever Tribute??? This must be a really sick joke by LaToya to first choose KISS to perform, when Gene Simmons called MJ a child molester (and still does), and then to choose Jamie Foxx, who publicly bullied and mocked MJ, to host her "tribute." This cannot be an accident. TWO people who tried to destroy Michael's reputation being invited to this "tribute"? No way. That bitch hates her brother.
