Mary J. Blige, Akon, Natalie Cole and Chris Brown will sing some of Michael Jackson's greatest hits at a global tribute in Vienna Sept. 26 that also will feature a virtual duet between the self-proclaimed King of Pop and one of his brothers, organizers said Tuesday.

Event promoter Georg Kindel said that up to 25 performers are expected to participate in concert that is being billed as the main global tribute for Jackson, who died June 25 in Los Angeles. More names will be unveiled later this week, Kindel said.

Meanwhile, MTV said that Janet Jackson would open Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards with a musical tribute to her late brother.
