The show is tipped to coincide with the release of his 'Number Ones' compilation album...

Michael Jackson is currently in talks with broadcasting giants CBS to perform in a music special due to be aired on November 26.

The appearance would follow the release of his greatest hits album ‘Number Ones’, a week earlier (November 17).

However, details of the proposed performance are being kept a tight secret. Neither CBS nor Epic – part of Sony Music Entertainment – have commented.

One industry source has told Reuters that the talks have been ongoing under Michael Jackson‘s “contractual obligation to CBS to do a performance”.

A 2001 Michael Jackson special on the network celebrating his 30 years as a solo artist pulled in more than 25 million viewers.
