by at . Comments

Michael Jackson's mother, Katherine, has reached out to some of the biggest stars in music in hopes that they will perform at a tribute show for her son.

Jay-Z, Kanye West, Cee Lo, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Usher, Bruno Mars and others have received invites (below) from Katherine.

Katherine Jackson is asking them to perform 1-2 of their favorite MJ songs in Cardiff, Wales on October 8, promising "first class travel accommodations."

So far, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars have respectfully declined due to scheduling conflicts, while Christina and Kanye are leaning towards going.

Cee Lo Green, meanwhile, has already committed.

Tickets to the event have not gone on sale yet, but it's still very early. Promoters say they will become available once a complete line-up is booked.

It should be a memorable night, to say the least.
