Looks like Janet is back on her grind; she’ll be opening the American Music Awards with an 8 minute performance. ABC has confirmed that Janet Jackson will be the opening act for this year’s American Music Awards. The awards show will air live from the Nokia Theatre in LA on November 22 at 8:00 PM.  We hope Janet still has it; eight minutes of full dancing and singing with the pressure of a comeback is no joke.  We wish her well. Janet will also sit down for her first public interview with ABC next Wednesday, November 18th.

    I dont want to sound bad, but sometimes I get the sense that MJ’s siblings are really riding the crest of a wave from his death! Sorry, I do!

    At least ms. jackson does her own thing. The rest are media #oes especially that father of his! Dispeakable behaviour!!!

  • RP

    She will shut it down like she always does. She’s a Jackson…duh.

    In regards to the person thinking she’s cashing in: Firstly, why not? The media, Sony, and everybody else is making money off of MJ’s death. Why shouldn’t his own family?

    Secondly, she was already working hard before this happened. She was working on her film for Tyler Perry, planning on releasing a Greatest Hits cd and working on new music. She’d be a fool not to capitalize on the opportunity to get back where she belongs.

    As far as her being up to an 8 minute performance, Janet Jackson is a pro. I saw her on tour in NYC last year and 8 minutes will not phase her. She has more stamina than all the young girls on the scene today. Trust me!

    Why not cash in? MORALS for one!

    i wouldnt cash in on anyones death, sorry, we found it bad when the father tried to, why is it okay for Janet!

    her career was finished last year, and she pubicily blamed MJ for it, however, his death and the promotional side of things are good for her now.

  • AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWSHADDAAAP!!!!!

    WHEN did Janet blame Michael publicly for ruining her career? I’ve never heard this story.

    Janet will and always be the best in the game. Unfortunately, bloggers of this generation are left with crappy music and artists. Janet performance will be the only reason I will tune in to see the awards. I’m tired of the lame music and artists of today. GO JANET!!!

  • JUDY

    Hooray for Janet!Janet and Michael have always been my favorite Jacksons…….I like Rebbie too.

    we sometimes forget that we are just fans. Janet is Michael’s family and we have no right to state what she can and cannot do. We have to learn to have our boundaries sometimes. We have to stop trying to be vigilantes in Michel’s name by attacking his family as we really didn’t know him like they did. Imagine if people tried to tell you how to mourn for your brother, when to sing, talk to the media and even think about him?

    @Hold on
    you won’t cash in on anyone’s death…great, but Michael was not your brother.
    It’s great to have opinions, but lets keep them within reason.

  • lt

    Can’t wait to see her performance. Please believe, she is going to bring it.

  • Greg

    @ Hold on wait

    You know when janet had her superbowl issues, never once did i hear Micheal going to bat for her the she has for him over the years,up until his death she was actually far more relevant than he was, don’t get me wrong I love Mike, but Janet deserves her comeback, don’t think for one second if it were reversed Micheal would be using it, but I dont think Janet needs too use it, she will mention it becuase it will be asked about, but less not forget Micheal would be spinning this every way he could!

    @Hold on

    You cant be serious. LaToya & Jermaine both did big brother for themselves not for Michael. There is no way they can promote for Michael because they are not Michael. Also when LaToya did Big Brother she had been working on an album called Starting Over which is where the song she released after his death “Home” came from (Tho all proceeds went to AIDS charity in LA).

    Janet HAS NEVER EVER blamed Michael nor did she ever talk negative against him its a mistake on your behalf. Janet defended Michael & then said in various interviews she refuses to discuss Michael anymore because he is her brother & she is not going to be the one to tell his story. Lastly Janet is a MAJOR star, with records broken & global success. Before Michael died she had a lot of plans from a book, new music, this Greatest Hits & getting on a new record label. Her career wasn’t dead she just had a new CD in 2008. I think people are easy to judge celebs but I don’t want you to ever forget that making music/performing is Janet’s job just like you have a job & life. She is going to continue until the end just like Michael would have. She is the #1 Jackson (nothing against the others) but the #1 who NEVER went against Michael ever.

    @Greg

    I just want to say, Michael did go to bat for Janet he said in an interview that he told Janet don’t sweat it, it will pass. He told her how when he was young & she was too young to remember there was a man who streaked at the Oscars & it was live. He told her have faith and it will be ok.

    Because people don’t see every comment or compliment doesn’t mean they don’t exist. And Janet is not using his death for anything she’s just going back to work. Would you quit your job or the life you planned before your siblings death for the rest of your life after they died? No, what’s unfortunate is life goes on, whats worse than that when your in the public eye your judged for continuing to be human and living your life.

    Step down off the the Thriller albums, I never heard Micheal defend Janet publicly the way she has him! I was not saying Janet shouldnt be getting back too her grind at all, nor did i say she should speak about this is someway, what i said is she doent need too, but she will be asked about it, lets be clear here Janet has always defended her family, but I have never seen it recipricated!

    @Greg

    Whatever that meant. This is what Im talking about “don’t think for one second if it were reversed Micheal would be using it” though you said you dont think Janet needs to use it saying if it were reversed Michael would be using it…would imply that its being used lol. And I understand you said you havent seen it, but Im gonna try to find the interview & try to post it for you. That way you will have seen it.
