Grammy winners Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood and Usher will join together, along with the voice of Jackson, in a special tribute to the 'Thriller' hitmaker.
Also, a never-before-seen 3-D mini-movie for 'Earth Song' that was created by Jackson as the centerpiece of his much-anticipated 'This Is It' tour, will be screened at the ceremony, reported the official site of the awards.

"It was one of the most important portions of the concert tour to Michael and when Michael saw the film for the first time at his last rehearsal, there were tears in his eyes," said Ken Ehrlich, Grammy co-Executive Producer and longtime Jackson associate.

The tribute joins previously announced performances by nominees Beyonce, the Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, the Dave Matthews Band, Green Day, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Maxwell, Pink, Taylor Swift, and the Zac Brown Band.

The gala event will take place on January 31 in Los Angeles.
