Hot Shots: Janet Jackson Thrills London…And JLS

Published: Friday 1st Jul 2011 by Sam

Janet Jackson‘s ‘Number Ones: Up Close & Personal Tour’ pulled into London last night. Fittingly held at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, That Grape Juice was in the house at the sold-out event – and so were our good friends, Pop divas JLS.

Posing it up with the superstar were JB and Oritse, while band-member Marvin tweeted:

Went to see Janet Jackson last night at the Royal Albert Hall..She stills killing her dance breaks! 45 years old! Legend! We love u Jan! Marv x

Legend indeed. Sitting third row, we most certainly got up, close, and personal with Ms. Jackson and what an experience it was. For, she still has ‘it’ in abundance, which served as a potent reminder to self for why we put such a high premium on the acts of today. If Janet is still killing it on stage at 45, there really isn’t any excuse.

    This is why it kills me when people say Britney’s age is why she dances 2 steps to slow if you can even call it dancing. Janet is 45 so that excuse just doesn’t fly. But Janet kills it in concert ever time.

    Janet looks incredible! I know that show was the greatest thing ever, because I was on a high for days after I saw her a few months ago. She is and always will be the Queen of pop!

    ***UP CLOSE AND BEAUTY*** Side note: That’s the Media kissing Britney’s (Their Own Kind) white ass. Women of color have to work twice as hard Janet is 15 years older than her and doesn’t get the respect she deserves. It’s slowly happeding to Beyonce as well. It happend to all the “Greats of Color Pass”. The funny thing is the world see that #BLACKGIRLSROCK Lena Horne Tina Tuner DIana Ross Donna Summer Grace Jones Whitney Houston Janet Jackson Beyonce Rihanna… Thank god for YouTube.

    I so luv Janet.. I luv Beyonce 2 but omg Janet just gives me that extra boost that Bey doesn’t. 45 and still slaying, (gasp), dancing her ass off and looking like shes in her late 20’s. Ppl, it don’t get any better that this.

  20. Scooter July 1, 2011

    I’ve been said that, that no excuse why Britney spears ain’t dancing like she use too & for Justin timberlake too make his recent comments & Janet Jackson 45 & still gives her all again Britney spears had her days I just dnt see it anymore in the present days i wouldn’t want too see britney spears Perform live & it not going too be live anyways

  21. QW July 1, 2011

    She aintthe Queen Of Pop for no reason, hunny that title aint got a damn thing to do with her last name or her brother Michael, Janet is thee baddest and she shows you why she is the Queen. Now somebody tell me how another could even be considered. All of the youngins are out on tour right now and we all can CLEARLY see that NONE OF EM could eva f with Janet Jackson. THEDIMPLEPUPPET is right, the media has been doing that to Jan for awhile now, but now lets watch and see what God does for her. Nobody can stop ya blessings and I feel that this tour is just the tip of the Iceberg to what is to come from Queen Janet.

  22. B July 1, 2011

    She’s a bad bad B****!!!! These young kids can’t see her…all they can do is emulate and wish that at 45 they can still kill it! BOW DOWN and respect the QUEEN!!!

  23. Gary July 1, 2011

    I was there last night too … Im a huge fan of Janet and have been since 1993 (LMAO) and she did not disappoint last night. She brought all the hits and all the dance moves and the crowd LOVED her. Every single person was on their feet dancing and singing. I didn’t want it to end. And yes, she was singing live. BLOWN AWAY.

  24. The Man July 1, 2011

    She looks F*ckin AMAZING !!!!! WOWWWWWWWWWW !!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST GORGEOUS !!!!!

  25. Big Ro July 1, 2011

    These young artists can’t ever f*** with Miss Janet! EVER!

    Your favs PRESENT is Janet’s PAST!

    They live in the MANSION that Janet BUILT!

    Work it to the FRONT, BACK & SIDE DOORS JANET!

    Janet has always been able to put on a great show. It really irritates me when artist like Britney, Madonna, Justin Timberlake get these titles from the media mostly white like Queen of Pop or the New King of Pop as what Rolling Stones had the nerve to say about Justin when he came out with his first solo record. Black artist like Janet , Beyonce, and Usher don’t get that same respect when they are clearly more talented then any of the above artist i mention.

  27. PYTFROMAL July 2, 2011

    As I said before..she doesn’t age.

  28. SHESDUMB July 2, 2011

    THE QUEEEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. TurnmeOn July 2, 2011

    Damnnn she looks younger than Kelly, Rhianna, Briteny, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce I am not a big fan of Janet but damn she looks young I didn’t know she was 45 I thought she was at least 30 and it cant be because of surgery how the hell would she have time shes been on tour for 5 years now that’s all natural

  30. nice_gurl July 2, 2011

    To still have the body and face of a 30 year old and still able to have the energy to dance the way she does at age 45 is some REAL TALENT!

  31. hasbeenjanet July 4, 2011

    She needs to retire ASAP!

  32. Ryan July 4, 2011

    ^ Shut up fool, at 45 she’s probably still slaying your favourite!

    I saw the show twice over the weekend, it was amazing, she looked so young and was full of energy. This is the most amazing show, she’s singing live, dancing all night and not having any distractions and props, now that’s what you call talent, not many could do that today. Janet is the Queen, end of story.
