Janet Jackson -- If the Glove Fits

9/8/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson has been busting her butt rehearsing for a Michael Jackson tribute at the MTV Video Awards this weekend -- and it promises to be a nipple-free affair. We think.

Ms. Jackson is set to put on a huge MJ-honoring performance featuring 20 backup dancers -- which is being put together by some of the best choreographers in the world, including Frank Gatson and Travis Payne.

According to one of the dancers involved, some rehearsals have lasted 15 hours a day.

Once Janet is finished honoring her brother, we're told, "there won't be a dry eye in the house."

There are three songs that should be played alternatively 24/7 outside MJ's grave, this is what killed him slowly inside:

TABLOID JUNKIE

MONEY

What a great man, he LOVED THE WORLD WITH ALL HIS HEART, it was an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and he really wanted to HEAL IT, STOP WARS and DESTRUCTION and have people find a common ground IN LOVE and GOODNESS and SHARING !

People he cared for abused his trust and continuously deceived him; worst of all the media/press raped and stripped him of his dignity publicly and hounded him mercilessly. And through it all he smiled!

I wonder how many of us would withstand the same introspection into our lives and how we would handle the pain. Before we case stones at MJ maybe we should imagine ourselves in his life and ask ourselves how would we manage it? How would we escape the pain?

Michael, you were too good for this world, for the people here, for the decadence of the community around us. You are finally up with the angels, where you belong, may you RIP ! We will do our best to CARRY ON YOUR LOVE and SELFLESSNESS and teach it to our little ones.

I so want to watch this event but don't think they'll show it in nz. I've been listening to MJ since the day he passed away. MJ R.I.P

Can't wait to see it! I'm sure she is going to give it her best.
I pray Michael kids are doing okay. I'm sure they miss him, because I know I do.

Wow indeed! Janet comes forth; I have been wondering why there has been so little from her (and yet so much from Michael's arguably less believable siblings). Can't wait to see her show!!

Each of us are born designer originals, sadly most die as cheap carbon copies-trying to be someone other than who we were born to be -- no matter how hard u try to be like someone else, u can never be as good as they are being them.

While ur wasting ur life copying other people we are deprived of the uniqueness that is u. Find ur purpose, develop ur talent, so u can Bless Us All. R.I.P. MJ- A DESIGNER ORIGINAL
