The much-publicized “Michael Forever” tribute concert came and went this weekend, but not without a bit of controversy.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Eyed Peas[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jennifer Hudson[/lastfm] both pulled out last week for unclear reasons and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm] was denied entry into the country because of his criminal record.

But a bevvy of big names, including [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm], did end up performing and we’ve got footage of their tributes!

Actor/singer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jamie Foxx[/lastfm] served as emcee for 40,000 fans and he had lots of celebrities keeping him company.

Christina’s buddy from The Voice, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm] turned up for the festivities and sang “You Can’t Win” and “I Can’t Help It.”

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ne-Yo[/lastfm] was the spitting image of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] himself. He donned the late pop star’s iconic red leather jacket for a performance of “The Lady In My Life.”

He also borrowed some of Jackson’s dance moves for his version of “Billie Jean.”

A pregnant [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm] performed via satellite and channeled her inner-70s diva.

Her rendition of “I Wanna Be Where You Are” begins around 2:15 after a speech from Jackson’s children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket:

Christina took on a big challenge, performing one of Michael’s favorites, “Smile.”
