Janet Jackson VMA Tribute Honors Michael

by at . Comments

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards were something else.

But the night was, in part, a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Madonna opened the show with a heartfelt speech about her relationship with him.

A highly-anticipated tribute performance followed with well-known dancers doing the King of Pop's moves to "Thriller," "Bad" and "Smooth Criminal."

Then it was Janet Jackson's turn for a moving tribute. Giant screens inside the event kicked into the beginning of Janet and Michael's duet, "Scream."

Janet was removed from the video and sang and danced for real next to her brother, whose documentary, This Is It, was also previewed at the event.

It was impressive, entertaining and so much more:

Kudo's to whoever did Janet's choreography. The routine was cool, but I'm really tired of Janet lip-synching. Have you noticed she is really starting to look more and more like papa Joe in a lace-front weave. I'm glad she did a tribute but I like Latoya's song Home tribute better. Latoya's vocals are much better and she is the only one with any personality in the family and she was the first there at the hospital, signed the death certificate, and planned the memorial, and has since promoted Michael's charities. Janet went right back to work on Tyler Perry's movie and back in the studio to record yet another sex song with a dated beat just in time to make money off of her brother's death. Sad, Sad, Sad.
