Will he cover 'Beat It?' ... Chris Brown to headline M.J. tribute show




What's more bizarre: That the big official Michael Jackson tribute concert will take place in Vienna, Austria? Or that the disgraced Chris Brown is the headliner? 

Also on the bill are Mary J. Blige and Natalie Cole, says the AP. Madonna could also join the show, which ultimately could include up to 25 performers. The show is set for Sept. 26 outside a 17th-century palace in the Austrian capital.

Jermaine Jackson has said Vienna was chosen as the venue because his brother "loved castles," and because Jermaine was impressed with how a smaller tribute held in July outside a mothballed nuclear power plant was organized.

And Chris Brown, who admitted to beating his girlfriend Rihanna, was chosen to perform because ... well, because the Jackson family is clearly nuts.
