Janet Jackson Lines Up ABC Special

Janet Jackson’s new team are seemingly pulling out all the stops to ensure her forthcoming ‘Number Ones’ compilation is a success. It has been announced that an hour-long Janet Jackson primetime special will air on ABC on November 18th – the day after the LP is released in the US.  {Source}

I cannot wait! With Janet now being the last ‘active’ member of the Jackson dynasty, I’m anticipating she gets treated with the respect she so deserves. Her partnership with new label, A&M/Interscope (expect an announcement about their partnership in the coming month or so) seems to be ensuring that she does.

The label (and her management) are going all out with the promotion for the record, as evidenced by the ABC special, a flash mob (click here for details), rumoured performance at the American Music Awards, and on the UK front – headlining the Jingle Ball, X-Factor, and several other scheduled promo spots. It’s a very exciting time to be a Janet Jackson fan.

Tidbit: Janet begins shooting the video for new single ‘Make Me’ today!

    While the stan in me is excited to hear about this promo effort, the cynic in me wishes they would save all of this for the new album. If it pushes “Make Me” to hit status, then I guess we could say it was all worth it but I can’t see the song becoming a hit in the States. Nothing on commercial radio sounds like that song.

    Whatever happens, I will be watching….
