Okay, first off, is it just us or is Janet channeling her look from 1993? Jackson looked absolutely amazing as she accepted the Icon Award during last night’s festivities. Janet rocked an all white ensemble and voluminous waves that had us singing Thats the Way Love Goes under our breath.
Nevertheless, it wasn’t just the honoring that made Janet’s moment at the 2015 BET Awards absolutely epic. An insane musical dance tribute was performed by Tinashe, Jason Derulo and Ciara. Of course, there is nothing like the original but all three artists clearly showed that no one does it like Janet. Jackson’s moves, style, routines and flair is often imitated but will never be able to be duplicated.
Tinashe flicked hair to Pleasure Principle, Jason Derulo moved energetically to All For You as Ciara had not one but two songs under her belt. Ciara entered the stage to If and then assembled the crew to form a Rhythm Nation right after a quick wardrobe change. To be honest at first we thought Ciara was Janet! Ciara had her Janet’s look DOWN so to us it was a great ode to the incomparable Janet Jackson.
