Published: Wednesday 17th Oct 2018 by Sam

The accolades continue to flood in for the ever-fierce Janet Jackson.

For, it’s just been announced that the superstar singer will receive the Global Icon honor at the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards.

Details on her appearance and performance below…

Set to take place on November 4th at Spain’s Bilbao Exhibition Centre, the ceremony will see the diva join the likes of Whitney Houston and U2 on the list of acts who’ve received the prestigious honor.

Per a press release from organizers, the 52-year-old will also take to the stage to perform for a dynamite medley of hits – including newest single ‘Made For Now.’ It’ll mark her first performance at the annual extravaganza.

The award comes on the heels of many others received by Jackson over the course of this year. Indeed, 2018 has seen her presented with Icon awards from the likes of Billboard and BMI, as well as the Impact honor from Radio Disney. She also was named amongst the finalists in the ballot for the 2019 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Much deserved!

    You only wished she was local. Slaying for 4 decades now. How can you not love this woman. I expect those European tour dates to drop soon after.

    Yes Lord! Through all she has suffered abd after all the backlash im happy for her. Not because im a fan but due to the fact Janet stayed true to herself and didn’t crack under pressure to please the powers that be to stay in the spotlight. Everything has been done on her terms and im happy the world is able to see it now. Definition of a strong woman and the blueprint for soo many. Congrats Janet!!!!!

    Janet Jackson/Tina Turner/Mariah/U2 are LEGENDS, they have Iconic Status and Sold records these new artist wish they could. CELEBRATE JANET. Looking forward to her performance – its time to Do Rhythm Nation with the Uniform and Slay (even though the pre-recorded tracks are annoying).

    Queen of buying awards

    • Morgan Lassiter October 17, 2018

      You are soooo jealous. The Jacksons has never had to buy an award! They are the originators of Music, performance and dance, just ask your favorite artist, I’m sure they are a JJ fan.

  11. JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2018

    Well this award means nothing obviously. She´s rebranding and regaigning her public and public figure after these many years hidding with that husband of hers. Just the normal procedure for any artist. At least she is deserving.
