US superstar Jamie Foxx will host the Michael Jackson tribute concert next month, in glamorous… Cardiff.

The Welsh location wasn’t quite what we expected for a major event celebrating the King of Pop. And as if that wasn’t surprising enough, it has been confirmed that Craig David will be performing.

Craig has been away from the music scene for a while now, so this announcement was rather intriguing. We are interested to see what he has in store. He knows the pressure is on however, saying

I’ve just got to make sure I pull it off. People don’t want me to go up there and do a remix of the song. Just do the song… and kill it

Other British acts on the bill are JLS and Leona Lewis, and Craig has nothing but faith in them both,

I think Leona Lewis will do it justice. JLS – you know they’re going to do a big, lavish performance. You can see them doing Thriller – that’s the one they’d kill

The 7 Days singer will be surrounded by musical heavyweights on the day, including Ne-Yo, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, so let’s hope that he is up to the job and does Michael proud.

Do you think Craig will be a good addition to the concert? Fill us in…
