Today’s biggest R&B stars are also set to perform a tribute.
Janet Jackson will be honoured with BET’s inaugural Ultimate Icon award at the 2015 BET Awards.
The pop icon’s legacy will be celebrated this Sunday (June 28) when she receives BET’s first ever Ultimate Icon: Music Dance Visual Award.
It has also been confirmed that Jason Derulo, Ciara and Tinashe will perform an all-star tribute to the woman who redefined the R&B genre before the award is presented.
Janet’s first single in seven years, “No Sleeep,” premiered earlier this week so there are rumors of the superstar giving the song it’s debut performance on the night. If this is true then BET are certainly keeping the details locked down!
