When asked if Michael would be remembered during their set, Tito said:
"Absolutely, it's going to be fun. We will sing songs from his albums, like Rock With You and Can't Let You Get Away.
"We've been doing tributes to Michael for some time now, it's one of my favorite parts of the show. We miss him and we miss being on records on with him."
