Janet Jackson Stops By “American Idol” (by J. Tinsley)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Janet, Janet, Janet. I happened to turn to this right when the first half of the Magic/Celtics game ended, so I only caught the last 45 seconds of the performance, but damn. Miss Jackson – and I say this with all due respect – still has it. Of course she still has it musically, she’s the second most talented Jackson. That’s no disrespect because her brother Mike (God bless the dead) is arguably the greatest entertainer that ever walked the face of this planet.

Let’s just say, Janet obviously keeps in shape. Regardless, the icon who created Rhythm Nation stopped by “American Idol” for their season finale to show the rookies how veterans command an audience. Running through her new hit, “Nothing,” (which is a really, really good song) she also ended the performance with dazzling performance of his timeless classic, “Nasty.”

In all seriousness, it’s good to see Janet still remaining relevant in an industry that seems to kick artists to the curve after a certain amount of time. I just hope people truly appreciate what she’s meant for music, better yet pop culture as a whole. Multi-platinum albums, successful movies and she’s managed to do it all while maintaining a positive image (that whole Superbowl thing not pending).
