Janet Jackson -- Making Michael Proud

9/13/2009 10:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After a personal introduction from Madonna herself, a fully-clothed Janet Jackson took the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to honor her late brother Michael.

In a routine reminiscent of Natalie Cole, Janet performed her part of the song "Scream" while a music video of Michael doing his part played in the background.

ewwwwwwwwwww    

Janet is getting OLD...She can't move like she used to. She also looks like she's putting on weight, again. Michael was a lot prettier than Janet will ever be. I can't stand looking at her. She's just down right ugly-to me...

Well.... thank you Janet for paying tribute to your brother. I thought the commercial before the awards spoke volumes. And, Madonna really expressed herself well and I think if Joe and the family, and everyone with access to him missed her message, they are truly deaf.

this was entirely overrated she was onstage for what less then 2mins? over hyped.. i have respect and enjoy micheal jackson's music but this did NO justice. probably another Joe Jackson plan to ruin his sons memory and put money in his own pocket. of course jermaine and Joe were there.. theyv'e been on a promotion tour ever since his death.
