Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera and JLS have been announced as performers for the Michael Jackson tribute concert.
They will be joined by Craig David and Cee Lo Green for the Michael Forever Tribute Concert, which will be held on 8 October at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Members of the Jackson family, including the late superstar's nephew's group 3T, will perform alongside Alien Ant Farm, who released a cover of Michael's track, Smooth Criminal in 2001.
The organisers, Global Live Events, are also rumoured to have sent out invitations to the likes of Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z and Usher, with their website stating that there are "more acts to follow".
A statement on their website read:
"The organisers of the Michael Forever Tribute Concert are very mindful of the expectations of the fans, who have waited over two years for an event that will do justice to Michael's musical legacy.
"Some of the greatest names in music are already signed, and more are trying to shuffle other commitments to come on board."
Micheal died in June 2009 at his home in Los Angeles. A coroner declared his death a homocide, with his personal physician, Conrad Murray, pleading not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter.
