R&B singer Ciara has always credited Janet Jackson as being her biggest musical inspiration and now she may get the chance to honor her idol at the upcoming BET Awards.
Page Six writes:
A source exclusively revealed to Page Six that the “Rhythm Nation” singer will be honored at the event next Sunday.
The network’s been extremely tight-lipped about the production, but we hear Ciara will be one of the performers who will pay tribute to the reclusive pop star.
“Janet’s known for her dancing, so expect a lot of dancing,” said the source. This will be Jackson’s first major television appearance in three years. She last appeared on the BET Awards show in 2009 to pay homage to brother Michael three days after his death.
