Janet Jackson - BET Awards Ultimate Icon Award

 

In case you missed the memo…it’s Janet Jackson season!

The Pop icon is prepping her world tour and she has an album on tap, which is slated to drop this fall.

On Sunday, Janet will receive the inaugural Ultimate Icon Award at the 2015 BET Awards.

Stephen G. Hill, BET’s President of Programming, gushed about why Janet is the perfect choice to receive their Ultimate Icon Award.

This is Janet Jackson, people! We are excited beyond belief to present her with our inaugural ULTIMATE ICON: Music Dance Visual award and we are thrilled that she chose the BET Awards as the first step on her new road.

An inspiration to many other artists, ‘Ms. Jackson’ (’cause I’m nasty) blends music, dance and visuals in unique and groundbreaking ways and we look forward to celebrating her storied history… as well as giving the BET Awards audience a peek into her Unbreakable future.

Ciara, Jason Derulo and Tinashe have been tapped to perform tributes to the “No Sleeep” singer.
