Watch: Janet Jackson’s Billboard Music Awards Performance Rehearsal

Published: Friday 15th Jun 2018 by Sam

Last month Janet Jackson set the stage on fire at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards with her first televised performance in over nine years.

And the platform was oh so apt, for the superstar was being rightfully honored with the Icon Award at the ceremony.

Showcasing her scorching dynamism, the diva earned praise aplenty for her offering.

However, many fans were irked by the camera angles used on the broadcast which seemed to cut to the audience every a key piece of choreography was performed (case in point ‘If’ dance-break). So much so that and “fan-edits” of the performance were created and shared online using audience footage.

Well, for those wanting a closer look at the intricate details of Jackson’s showing, her photographer/videographer has obliged by sharing her rehearsal from every angle possible.

Check out Jackson and her J-Tribe slaying after the jump…

52 and outperforming acts half her age! Janet defines what it means to have “it” – that je ne sais quoi that can’t be bottled and sold.

Moving forward, we’re keen to see her hit more stages to further remind the masses why she is one of the most pre-eminent performers of all time.

        Suicide unlike you I am not homeless and using a lost cell phone or the free library to go online everyday. You need to be filling out job applications instead of trolling and wishing you were me. I have not been on this site simply because I’m busy getting checks. I bet you were seething in my absence wishing I were here.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 15, 2018

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 15, 2018

        Lest not forget that I don’t give a about you or David. The number of times David and Rashad checked your ass for trolling are countless so don’t even go there. You corny! That’s the best u can do corny ass? Troll me and clap back with dumb ass comments about what u think someone did. When I check somebody I do it directly! I don’t hide behind no man or no b|tch to do something! U are a coward. Keep on seething. U wish u were me but u will never be!

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 15, 2018

        Yeah, yeah, yeah SHANIQUA. I’m just happy you’re phones turned back on now sis(bro). How ru and ur husband(dïldo) doing!?

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 15, 2018

        Nice try but your clapback is still very very weak. My name is Jasmine. Respect that and stop trying to be me and stop using my name in your username Suicide. I totally get it that you are so thirsty and desperate for attention that you have to use my name for attention. After all I am the most popular person on this little music blog. Get a life dude. I’m not coming for you yet you are coming for me daily by still using my name. Time for you to impersonate someone else or better yet just be you Suicide.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 16, 2018

        Oh trollllllllmine!

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 15, 2018

      How’s your world famous aCUMen, TRASHmine? What number hair you wearing today, girl, yacky body wave #9?

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 15, 2018

        Grasping at straws huh? Aww you keep showing your passive agreessive white heshe tendancies. You are beyond pathetic. You have already been called out by numerous commenters that you are a white person so stop pretending to be black. That is stupid and desperate of you. Mat profile pic is real. I don’t have a “number hair” and black people do not talk like that you racist moron! The only “Trashmine” on here, racist white eurotrash from the slums of Geneva who is infatuated / obsessed with a mixed black woman from the states. Get over your obsession with me and just be you. Stop being so empty. You can’t be a “Jasmine” without flavor, spice, and substance. You are corny but when your corny ass impersonates me you are the crazy laughing joke of this little blog. I would respect u more if u were not such a cowardly heshe of a man.

    This epic Queen at 52 still out dances ur fav.

  3. eric June 15, 2018

    This makes me feel like I’m back at home in the 90s working out to MTV’s The Grind! lol. I don’t always like Gil’s choreography, but this here might be his absolute best work. It’s a shame so much of it was lost in the telecast. I want a do-over!!

    • pat June 15, 2018

      I think Gil is open to collaborating more with the dancers for a different vibe…i can see some of Dom’s influence and possibly denzel too

      • Rezno June 15, 2018

        I love this queen !! Can’t wait to see her this summer! Dom and Denzel did most of this and another young girl as well

  4. 4U2SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! June 15, 2018

    That is straight choreography…….Not any kiddie THOT pop dance ghett0 takes. The depth of her choreography is sharp with gifted spontaneous sophistication. You can not copy any of Janet moves that is original and not duplicated . I love her since a child and still inspired by many of her 1000’s of creative driven s*** sequences. The art of her and Micheal originality will go down in history from the arrangements, original movements with patterns. Janet looks so youthful with confident. Gooooooo Janet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Still Shook!

    • LB June 15, 2018

      Nothing original about the Jacksons. They’re the original thieves. I guess thats why thiefonce credits the thieving Jacksons as her inspirations.

      • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) June 15, 2018

        Hater be gone liar! Any music entertainer should be able to dance but very very few have the natural dancincg energy ooze out of them Michael Jackson and his baby sister Janet. You cannot copy or replicate that! You just have to have it in you. It’s a gift. Janet has natural ability and moves mixed with complex choreography. Like it or hate it but don’t lie on it.

  5. dee June 15, 2018

    Janet is that chick!

  6. Boytoy1814 June 16, 2018

    52yrs old & STILL slaying the rookies! #NuffSaid

  7. sonji June 16, 2018

    I can’t wait to hear more music from Janet. I’m a forever fan of all the Jacksons!
