Black Eyed Peas want to open for Michael Jackson when the pop singer starts his "This Is It" concert series at London's O2 Arena. Revealing the Peas' interest of becoming Michael's opening act was one of the group's members, will.i.am.

"We've never played there, but Michael Jackson's hogging all the freakin' days!" so will.i.am shared during the Los Angeles premiere of his movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" on April 28. "So I'm gonna call him up and be like: 'Yo wassup Michael, let us open up for you!'"

Predicting what Michael may say concerning the request, will.i.am said, "He might be like: 'Alright, well let me think about it.'" He concluded his statement gushing, "So hopefully he'll let us do some stuff."

Michael Jackson will kick off his concerts in London on July 8 and finish it up on September 29. After that, he is rumored to fly to Japan in 2010 for several live appearances in the country and then return to America a year later for other concerts.

Up to date, there haven't been any musicians signed to support Michael's O2 Arena concerts. But, those who attend the gig may be treated with a showcase of new songs from the pop singer as rumors have been circulating that he has worked on new materials for his comeback effort.

Solange Knowles, the baby sister of Beyonce Knowles is already scheduled as the opening act. A newcomer an uprising star like her would be more appropriate than Black Eyed Peas.

I'm sooooo happy the King is returning. The music world is like frozen without him and I'm glad he's back to heat things up, even if it's just one last time. We'll always need him. As they say, all good things must come to an end....Anyway, I think they should open up for Michael, that would be awesome! I love the Black Eyed Peas, and of course I love Michael so that would be a killer act. Welcome back Michael baby and I love you so much!!!!

As a black male, anti-Jacko, I must ask why do black males, in particular, support M.J. when it's so obvious he is at a minimum a homosexual, yet they don't blatently support that cause and often are the first to publically call someone out and show disapproval towards one for being gay? I'm confused.
