Janet Jackson Rehearsing For Touching MTV Tribute To Michael


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.

    Janet is an amazing performer – amazing! – and I hope this report is true. Her love for her brother is so sweet and any performance she gives will be incredible and certainly touching.

    I know that Janet and brother Jackie’s voices are a close match to Michael’s. Janet will do her brother proud and will bring the house down on Sunday night. I can hardly wait. I commend her courage and strength because this has to be one of the toughest performances she ever done in her life.
