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.
