Chris Brown // Michael Jackson

It’s really up to the courts whether or not Chris Brown will be taking part in a Michael Jackson tribute concert, set to be held in Vienna on September 26th. Jermaine Jackson himself announced that Brown, along with Mary J. Blige, Akon, Natalie Cole, Angela Bassett and more are set to appear at the tribute and the final list of performers and celebrity attendees hasn’t been finalized, so more could be (and will be) added.

Sometime during the show, expected to draw 65,000 fans to the venue, Jermaine will perform alongside a virtual Michael Jackson in a sure-to-be touching and “magic moment for all who loved his music,” Jermaine said.

While a label rep denies that Chris Brown will be taking part in the tribute, Jermaine says that the young pop star definitely wants to be a part of it.

“Chris Brown is working out some situations but he definitely expressed to us that he wants to be here,” said Jermaine. “It’s just up to what he’s going through with his court case right now. … People make mistakes and he’s a wonderful performer and during these times people need support and that’s really important.”
