LONDON, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Jermaine Jackson has agreed to be a judge on the upcoming British competition television series, "Move Like Michael Jackson," the BBC said.

Michael Jackson died June 25 at the age of 50. The circumstances of his death are still under investigation.

Jackson is the late pop star's brother and a former member of the U.S. singing group, The Jackson Five.

The BBC said its new six-part series will search the United Kingdom to find dancers "with the showmanship and technical ability of the great man."

Auditions for performers 16 and older are to take place this month and the show is expected to air later this year.

Jackson said Michael "inspired people across the world to master his moves and create their own unique routines."

"I'm really excited and delighted to be part of this show and look forward to finding the U.K.'s most talented and inspiring dancers," the BBC quoted Jackson as saying.
