Christina Aguilera, Marc Anthony, Ll Cool J and Smokey Robinson will headline a star-studded TV tribute to Michael Jackson on the first anniversary of the King of Pop’s death.
To mark a year since the King’s of Pop’s passing, a host of music stars will team up for a TV tribute on CBS News’ The Early Show on Friday.

Aguilera, Anthony and Robinson, as well as rapper LL Cool J and British singer James Morrison, will perform Jackson’s Man in the Mirror live during an hour-long special dedicated to the late superstar, according to Us Weekly.

Aguilera admits she is honored to take part, saying, “Music wouldn’t be what it is without someone like Michael Jackson. I remember going to my high school talent show singing The Way You Make Me Feel and being a huge fan of his album Bad. I know all my dancers wouldn’t be behind me dancing if it weren’t for that.”

Anthony adds, “A Michael Jackson comes around literally once in a lifetime. They break the mold and I think there are people who just sacrifice their life, their personal life all for the arts. That’s what Michael did; he sacrificed his life for the arts.”
