Singers Christina Aguilera and Smokey Robinson will perform at a special show Friday to mark the first death anniversary of pop legend Michael Jackson.

The two are set to take the stage on the US channel CBS for a special programme titled The King of Pop: One Year Later. They will perform on Jackson's hit single Man in the Mirror, reports

"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," said Aguilera.

Rapper LL Cool, singers Marc Anthony and James Morrison will join them.

"A Michael Jackson comes around literally once in a lifetime. They break the mould and I think there are people who just sacrifice their life, their personal life all for the art. That's what Michael did - he sacrificed his life for the art," said Anthony.
