Janet Jackson to open the 2009 American Music Awards

Posted on

There could be another Michael Jackson tribute headed our way. Janet Jackson will kick off the 2009 American Music Awards on Nov. 22 with a “special opening medley.” The show is mere days after Jackson unveils her new hits album NUMBER ONES on Nov. 17 which features 33 of her #1 hits plus the new single “Make Me.” A spokesperson for Dick Clark Productions would not confirm whether or not the medley would feature only Janet’s work or if it would incorporate some of her brother’s classics.
