It was a special day for Janet Jackson on Sunday during this year’s BET Awards as she was presented with the inaugural ultimate icon: Music Dance Visual prize in what was a star studded tribute by well know personalities in the entertainment industry.
Some of the big names who took to the stage so as to pay tribute to the 49-year singer come actress were, Jason Derulo, singer Ciara as well as Tinashe. The trio performed a well rehearsed dance tribute that was dedicated to Janet Jackson. The whole performance in general by the three was simply epic, in fact they even went a step further and incorporated Janet Jackson’s new song “No Sleep” in their performance. How sweet!
How the whole tribute started was also very nice. Before Jason Derulo, Ciara and Tinashe got onto the stage, there was a bunch of Janet Jackson clips that were shown. In the clips Janet was performing at some of her world tours. Janet’s arrival on the stage was also something of its kind. When the dancers who were performing alongside Derulo, Ciara and Tinashe started to grove to Janet Jackson new song “No Sleep”, Janet suddenly appeared on the stage where she accepted the award and gave out a very touching speech.
In her speech Janet Jackson thanked her fans for making it able for her to do what she loves most and that I music. She also thanked God for actually making it very possible for her to do what she does as well.
