Janet Jackson Performs ‘Runaway’ With The Roots On ‘Fallon’ [Video]

Published: Thursday 13th Feb 2020 by Sam

Janet Jackson recently appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ where she opened up about her ‘Black Diamond’ tour and album. Both of which are due to arrive in the coming months.

Unknown to most, the Pop queen also taped a performance segment with The Roots.

Joined by Fallon, Jackson and her ensemble performed her 1995 classic ‘Runaway’ using classroom instruments.

This was too cute!

    Normani tried so hard but she will never be in half of Queen Janet’s level

      I highly DOUBT she’s competing. If anything she looks up to her. After all, she did pay homage to her in a recent performance at the BMI awards. You all need to quit trying to make people dislike Normani. She hasn’t even released an album yet. Sheesh, stfu!

        She will probably only release a slew of flop singles, an ep that no one knows about, then get dropped and go the indie route to start releasing under the radar and low-budget faux India Arie-style singles and eps.

      This was not necessary. There is no competition between those ladies. One is a LEGEND and the other is very early in her career…they both can have success.

        Except one can seem to get any success.

      Ur tryna be messy but u have a small point. Normani has to find her live voice and sound. I don’t think she has yet

    Aaaaw! I love this! I’m so excited for this era! Can’t wait for the summer! ?

    I love it!

    She comes across so sweet. It’s a breath of fresh air to all the arrogance and
    Too much confidence in girls now.

    Miss Janet the lady.

    OMG!!! Love it!!!! I was just thinking how I would love Janet to tour just once where she sits on a stool, with a microphone and a four piece band and just sing. Do a 12 song set of classics like “When I Think of You ,” ” Lonely, ” “That’s the Way Love Goes,” ” I Get Lonely, ” I Want You, ” “Enjoy,” etc. I love Janet’s voice and it would be nice to see her stripped of all the spectacle.

    • Keith February 13, 2020

      I, too, dream of this kind of tour. Or at least an “Unplugged” one-off that’s recorded (MTV/BET/Netflix are you listening?). But I don’t think we will EVER get it…LOL

    IDC what anyone says, I love Janet’s soft, sweet vocals. No one can pull off a sensual track the way she can, and her harmonies are always ethereal. I loved this!

  9. Pat February 13, 2020

    Sing Janet. And quest w the harmonies. Janet has such a sweet tone and her able libs are so soulful

  10. Me… I Am Shayla ? Y’all Höes Could Neva February 13, 2020

    Miss Janet will always be the true Queen ❤️

    There are too many people posting here that are obviously obsessed with Normani whether a fan of hers or not. This should only be about Janet Jackson here, not Normani. I was very happy to finally see & hear Janet Jackson sing live and refrain from any lipsynching. She sounds great and was having fun with the guys. I absolutely hate all the lipsynching she does at all her shows, it is terrible.

    • Pat February 13, 2020

      U don’t know anything about Janet girl. Shet up

    • Me… I Am Shayla ? Y’all Höes Could Neva February 13, 2020

      Why you bring up Normani? Your ass obsessed smh
