Recent report suggested that Justin Timberlake and Prince have been booked to perform at a tribute show dedicated for Michael Jackson. The upcoming gig reportedly is initiated by Jermaine Jackson and will include Santana on the performers line-up.

"The best way and most suitable way is to assemble the world's largest tribute in history that is only fitting to a man who moved the hearts and souls of an unimaginable amount," Jermaine said as quoted by Undercover. Additionally, the older brother of the King of Pop was said to have signed Janet Jackson to fill the vacant slot in the Jackson Five during the tribute.

The gig is expected to take place at Wembley Arena in London on June 8 and rumored to be broadcast globally. Other rumored performers include Shakira, Earth Wind and Fire, Usher, Nelson Mandela, Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston, Jabbawockeez, Seal and Ne-Yo. There is no official confirmation regarding the report as the official site of Michael Jackson tribute show still mentions the gig as a "coming soon" event.

Jermaine Jackson has planned the tribute show since last year. It was originally planned to be held in London before then moved to Vienna and postponed until 2010 after organizer struggled to get stars to perform at short notice. The gig was then canceled after its main sponsor decided to back out of the project.

I think people need to leave jermaine alone. This is exactly why the last tribute fell through...too much negitivity! i hope jermaine is able to pull this off. i know the jacksons are perfectionist so this tribute will be top of the line in order for them to present it and personally id rather wait a while and see a great tribute then to have some whack shit thrown together. Bless jermaine michael and the rest of the family...except joe. fuck him

I support Jermaine doing this tribute for his brother Michael Jackson and think Prince would be so great!! Tired of hearing negative trash about Jermaine I don't believe it. Jermaine loves his brother and is always there for him..PRINCE YES!! Prince is brilliant..

Can't think of anyone better than PRINCE doing this.!! YES. Michael would approve I think. Also Justine is good and Usher... Hope it happens. Love Prince. He's the best performer happening after Michael Jackson and James Brown...

That would be cool! Justin has come along way since his 'NSYNC days. I did like him with Britney Spears, though. I hope their relationship is menioned in "Britney Spears: Little Girl Lost". I would pay to read more about that. Check it out on Amazon!
