Janet Jackson’s BET Awards 2015 Tribute — See It Here! (VIDEO)
Tonight, pop legend Janet Jackson was awarded the Ultimate Icon award at the BET Awards 2015. Not only was the singer honored for her amazing music, videos, and record-breaking success, but she was also celebrated with a tribute featuring Tinashe, Jason Derulo, and Ciara.
Starting out the tribute was a dance to “Pleasure Principle” by Tinashe, which was then followed up with killer choreography to “All For You” by Jason Derulo and a team of dancers.
Bringing it altogether was a stunning performance by Ciara to Janet’s super sexy “If,” immediately followed by our girl CiCi dancing to Janet’s all-time hit, “Rhythm Nation,” where she was joined on stage by Jason and Tinashe.
But that wasn’t the end of it.
After the smoke cleared, dancers hit the stage to dance to Janet’s new single, “No Sleeep,” and Janet calmly walked on stage from the wings — in her first televised appearance in years — to accept her award as cameras panned to her parents, Catherine and Joe Jackson, in the audience.
Janet expressed being “grateful” for the support of her family, thanked Ciara, Tinashe, and Hason for performing in the tribute, and said to her fans, “I’ve missed you all so much.”
We missed you too, Janet!
