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.

Janet Jackson

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.

Another opportunist Jackson. I'm really tired of Janet lip-synching. I'm glad she copied Toy with a tribute, but Latoya's song "Home" is better. Toy was the 1st at the hospital, signed the death certificate, and planned the memorial, and has since promoted Michael's charities. Janet went right back to work on Tyler Perry's movie and in the studio to record a song with a dated beat just in time to make money off of her brother's death. Sad, Sad, Sad.

458: What right do you have to say Janet is an opportunist? Maybe she went back to work to try and get her mind off of the loss of her brother. When my husband died, I went back to work within a few days. I couldn't sit around the house and do nothing, it was too difficult. I believe the reason LaToya was at the hospital first was because she was close by. How do you know that Janet was in town that day? I give Janet credit for doing what she did. She paid a tribute to her brother, whom she loved very much. I'm sure if she was in town, Janet would have been at the hospital immediately. Don't judge until you know all the facts.

FYI, moron, Janet has ALWAYS stood beside her brother and supported him; especially through that BS with those idiot gold-digger kids trying to hack him for cash. Latoilet was RIGHT THERE, too, but trashing Michael just as bad as those kids and their bankrupt families. Janet's a class act.

And to the jerkoff 'Sharlene'...jealous because you couldn't look that good no matter how much you stuffed your fatazz into a blowup raft? Jealousy is SOOOO unattractive, so try and get some therapy for that and get over yourself.

I agree about Madonna, but for Janet, I can't imagine how tough that had to be up on that stage with her and Michael's video playing; trying her best to keep it together. I can still see the pain in her face.

Janet Jackson is wearing black and white clothes and the great music video "Scream" is shot in black and white is there some meaning behind all this?? Janet looks so angry. Is Janet angry with the media and all the Michael Jackson haters? I am a huge Michael Jackson fan I love him and I love Janet Jackson too! Michael loved Janet his "funky little sister". Janet his "Dunk" as he called her. Sadly I don't trust Joe Jackson and Jermaine Jackson I am not a fan of that dynamic duo Joe & Jermaine I want to like them but I can't something in me will not let me.
