The Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson have joined the line-up of the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Britain.

The UK Event has taken criticism by some Jackson fans and the official administrators of Michael Jackson’s estate over the line-up, ticket prices and confusion over charity donations.

The tribute has the backing of Jackson’s mother Katherine but siblings Randy, Germaine and Janet have said they will not be attending.

Black Eyed Peas co-founder will.i.am said Jackson’s music had been an inspiration to him growing up in Los Angeles, and recalled working with the “Thriller” singer in 2007.

“The Black Eyed Peas wouldn’t miss being at the Millennium stadium for this gig on October8: we all owe Michael such a lot,” will.i.am said in a statement.

Grammy-winner Hudson, a former “American Idol” contestant, won an Oscar for her role in the 2006 movie musical “Dreamgirls.”

The tribute concert comes more than two years after Jackson, 50, died in Los Angeles from an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.
