Janet Jackson ELECTRIFIES Essence Festival with Epic Set

Published: Sunday 3rd Jul 2022 by Sam

Janet Jackson brought the heat to New Orleans with a seismic set at the Essence Festival of Culture 2022.

Taking command of the Caesars Superdome, the leader of the ‘Rhythm Nation’ blew the roof off the building with back-to-back hits during her headlining showing.

The Queen of Pop powered through classics such as ‘If,’ ‘Feedback,’ ‘That’s The Way Love Goes,’ and ‘Control’ – much to the delight of the 80,000 in attendance.

That Grape Juice was in the building and indeed confirm that Ms. Jackson came, slayed, and conquered that stage.

Check out highlights from an unforgettable night after the jump…

        Thats your job loud q****. You like to pay it forward since nobody wants to lick that muddy sh!t you got decaying in between your legs 😂 but that’s what friends are for lol

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

        This that good ish, hunnie! Maybe if you cleared your “vintage” bush from 1973, you’d notice that the smell of decay is actually coming from what’s between your own legs. Now, I’m being a friend by letting you know 💋

    • STFU July 3, 2022

      Shut your filthy tranni mouth bum! You have so much to say about ppl with lives yet you never had one of your own.

  3. Normila July 3, 2022

    Wow! Such stamina. I don’t see Britney, Normani, or any current pop starlet pull this off at 50+ like Janet can or Madonna before her. Maybe Bey and Cierra. . .but that’s it.

  4. Janet’s flowers July 3, 2022

    I thoroughly enjoyed Janet’s set although she didn’t come until well after 1am. I was tired as hell but determined to see her. She KILLED. Who else but the queen is doing this at 56 years old? And her mic was ON. I bow down to this LEGEND!!!

  5. Dc July 3, 2022

    Saw her in concert before a lypsinc snooze fest 💤

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

      Mary J. Bilge could NEVER!!!!

      • Dc July 3, 2022

        Hot Sh*t”, by Cardi B in partnership with Kanye West and Lil Durk, was the fastest growing song on US radio in the last 24 hours and has already accumulated 7.88 million in audience on Mediabase


      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

        Still no second album though, huh? 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

        6 singles, 6 music videos, countless features including even more music videos… and no second album, huh?

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

      Only one album in and Cardi already flopping 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Didn’t even make it to that second album 💀 Camila made it to three albums plus a soundtrack album 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    • Ok but….. July 3, 2022

      Well if you didn’t notice that mic was all the way on for her entire set. I bet you enjoy support all the artists that copy her and Madonna though right?

    • Truth teller July 3, 2022

      Mary J lipsyncing now because the alcohol is destroying her voice

  6. eric July 3, 2022

    I thought the days of her moving like this were behind her, and I’ve been learning to accept that, so this Essence peformance is a very nice surprise. Janet’s still got it. I’ve seen her on tour four times and had my ticket for Black Diamond before it was canceled. I hope the next tour/album announcement is soon.

  7. A July 3, 2022

    SHE DID THAT! Showed up and showed OWT! #myqueen

  8. Pat July 3, 2022

    They didn’t tell me the queen was out there handing out parts like Twinkie Clark. I gagged!

  9. Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 3, 2022

    Janet needs to sit down, have a SEAT before she breaks her hip 😂 Janet is so Ordinary & Boring compared to Michael. 😂

    • yup! July 3, 2022

      You know all about breaking hips, even when seated lol. Beyonce’s hair tossing will never compare to the clean intricate high energy Janets shows gave.

      • Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 3, 2022

        Janet will never compare to THE QUEEN with those stiff ROBOTIC 12345678s steps lol


        ^^^ here’s Bey just PLAYING & toying around with Crazy In Love. A mid tier performance still better than half of Janet’s performance history.

        Janet’s SUPER BOWL performance was a whole SNOOZEFEST,

        well it was until…

        😂 😂 😂
        (Justin saved it)

      • yup! July 3, 2022

        She pranced around the stage with bad hair and her low, deep, and husky voice with thick Texan accent on display lol.

  10. Keith July 3, 2022

    As a hard to impress Janet stan, I have to give Ms. Jackson and the team their props for last night.

  11. UHoesFunny July 3, 2022

    Janet SNAPPED!!! 🔥🔥🔥

  12. Diabetes UNBOTHERED July 3, 2022

    Janet’s SUPER BOWL performance was a whole SNOOZEFEST,

    well it was until…
    😂 😂 😂😂 😂 😂😂
    (Justin saved it at the end)

    No wonder they never invited Janet to perform again. Janet’s boring live without Justin.😂

  13. Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 3, 2022

    We ain’t gonna get no sleep 🎶😈💦 Yaaaaaaaaaaas hunnie!

    • marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) July 3, 2022

      Damnnnnnnnn go deep, anytime anyplace are Diva’s naughty bedroom jam💅🏾🍆❤️

  14. Now Control This! July 3, 2022


  15. Sharon July 3, 2022

    She slayed. She was so wonderful. Her tight band. Her dancers. Her Dj. She is The Queen. She deserves her flowers. She danced soooooo hard!!! I’m proud. She need to give seminars on stage presence to these younguns. I am so glad I didn’t miss it. Her brother Mike is beaming down saying “Well done”. She didn’t have to do it but…… she did The Damn Thing. Brava Queen. I’m bowing down.

  16. Fatbichcoming4yoneck July 3, 2022

    You all on here must’ve been from a divorce pregnancy or miscarriage because Janet was the first to do it and always will… I don’t know who yo beyflopce is or ain’t. I don’t care she is a fake copy thief who steals. Bye

  17. DarealD July 3, 2022

    Janet is queen!!!!

  18. XTINA July 3, 2022

    She looks like a s*** galaxy 🥰

  19. DeanD July 3, 2022

    When they say Janet works the hardest THIS is what they mean. She comes from a generation that knew how to dominate a stage. She’s an icon for a reason!

  20. Justice July 3, 2022

    Outstanding. Janet maybe one of the only musical legend-pioneers we have left alive aside from Madonna and Mariah ofc.

  21. Sade July 3, 2022

    Janet birthed these b****** and still GIVING at 50+ years old. It was a treat to watch her slay the stage for almost an hour straight. Y’all 50 year old beer belly having mamas can’t event walk to the mailbox without being winded lmao

  22. Gertrude Palmer July 3, 2022

    Old and stiff. She should retire.
