Beyoncé has confirmed that she will perform at the tribute concert for the late Michael Jackson in October via satellite, reports MTV.

The singer will perform a cover of a Jackson 5 track via satellite link although it is not known if the performance will be live or pre-recorded.

Organisers said: "Due to scheduling issues she can't be there in person, but this performance is not to be missed," quoted Radio 1.

Beyonce will join other confirmed artists Leona Lewis, JLS, Christina Aguilera, Pixie Lott and Cee Lo Green at the Michael Forever show at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

A statement on the MJ event's Facebook page read:

"A lifelong Michael fan, Beyoncé really wanted to be involved in this tribute concert. Due to scheduling issues she can't be there in person, but this performance is not to be missed."

The likes of JLS, Alexandra Burke, Pixie Lott, Craig David and Smokey Robinson will also perform at the gig on 8th October at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

The event will be organised by Jackson's mother and siblings in conjunction with Global Live Events, with all proceeds going towards U.S. and UK charities.

However not all of Jackson's family are involved in the tribute concert, Jermaine and Randy Jackson criticised it as "inappropriate" due to the event's clash with the trial of Conrad Murray, the doctor charged in relation to their brother's death.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday at 9 a.m.
