Spies are reporting that Janet Jackson is in rehearsal lockdown for this weekend’s MTV Music Video Awards.
The performance? A top-secret tribute to brother Michael.
TMZ reports that the affair is a grand one featuring 20 backup dancers and some of the world’s most prolific choreographers, including Travis Payne (who worked with Michael on his HIStory tour) and Beyonce dancemeister, Frank Gatson.
Loosey-lipped dancer Kryiss Grant tells TMZ that the performance is an eye-popper, saying: “there won’t be a dry eye in the house.”
Janet has also signed on to one of her late brother’s charities. She’ll chair the September 28th amFAR Miliano event – the Foundation’s inaugural benefit for AIDS research held in conjunction with Milan Fashion Week.
