Janet Jackson Watches Janet Flash Mob

11/16/2009 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Flash mobs usually pay homage to musicians who are no longer with us -- or at least ones who aren't right there -- but the Janet Jackson mob this weekend had a very special guest ... Janet herself!

Janet Jackson

But it wasn't a coincidence -- it was all to promote Janet's greatest hits album, which comes out Tuesday.

Still cool though.

@Britney She didn't cancel it due to poor ticket sales. She canceled some shows because of her migraines, and then Japan leg was canceled by the promoters themselves because of the economy -- not her. That being said, Discipline was NOT her best CD. I'm praying her next CD is on par with All For You, at the very least, because she did well with that one. I saw that tour back in 2001. Wow. If anyone ever gets a chance to see her live, do it. Spend the $80, $90, $100 to get a ticket. Totally worth it, and I've been to a LOT of concerts.

She's a real class act showing up to a fan event like this. People always compare her to Michael, but she has tried to separate herself from her family since day one.

Apart from Michael, Janet is the only other Jackson with talent and the only one not to leech off Michael.

As for all you MJ haters..... I feel sooooooo sorry for you all. You must be such failures in your own little lives that you feel better if you criticise someone else. You're all very sad.

As for all you saddos who call Michael a freak..... he most definitely wasn't .... BUT, if you think so then it takes one to know one.

TO ALL YOU HATERS!! JANET HAS ALREADY ESTABLISHED HER SELF AS A GLOBAL SUPERSTAR AND ICON AND LEGEND!! MICHAEL WAS HER BROTHER AND IF SHE WANTS TO DO TRIBUTES AND HONOR HIM ALL OF HER LIFE THAT IS JUST FINE, THAT WAS HER BROTHER WHOM SHE WAS VERY PROUD OF. STOP HATING AND BEING JEALOUS THE U.S. TRIED TO KILL ALL OF THE JACKSONS BECAUSE I BLAME THE US FOR MICHAEL'S DEATH; BUT WE ARE NOT GONNA LET THEM KILL JANET!! JANET IS THE "GREATEST ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIMES" SHE WILL BRING THE HOUSE DOWN ON YOUR ASS.

======================

Cindee I agree 100%!!!! TACKY - TACKY -TACKY!!! She doesn't even have a current record deal!!! This appearance, her upcoming interview, the hastily thrown together "greatest hits" CD are all to take advantage of MJ sympathy... Sorry, I just could not be less impressed with the entire Jackson family, Janet included. God save MJ's children!!!

This is Janet's week for sure. Three flash mobs -- 2 I've seen video of-- not sure when the 3rd is scheduled-- tomorrow maybe?

Tuesday her Number Ones will be released. Wednesday the ABC/Robin Wright interview. Sunday she opens the AMA's-- a full 8 minute performance.

I hope she accepts Michael's AMA awards.... of which there better be 5. The commercial is cute with Michael in Smooth Criminal suit and winking when they ask if he'll sweep the awards.

Lots of love and support to you Janet! You are awesome! A fan from the start.

This is video of the second Flash Mob of the weekend-- organized not by Janet's team but two fans and just picked up by Janet's Twitter web team. Janet was not at the first one.

The definition of Flash Mob above doesn't seem right. The Black Eyed Peas did one in Chicago for Oprah, and it was to their song--and they themselves organized it.

Janet has a busy week. Her Number Ones album is released tomorrow, along with I think the 3rd Flash Mob. Wednesday her interview with Robin Wright on ABC, then Sunday her performance opening the AMAs. Can't wait!

Hope she accepts Michael's awards (or his children-- I think that would be awesome. After all, they are his legacy! Talk about not leaving a dry eye around the world!) The commercial ABC did when they asked if Michael would be the biggest winner of the night-- with him in his Smooth Criminal suit and the wink. Loved it!

I think voting is over for the AMAs, except for the breakout artist. His fans rose to the challenge... we'll see Sunday!

Love Janet! You keep going. Your fans have been there from the beginning and will continue to support you!

Michael Jackson's Voice    

Janet has always stood out on her own neither her nor Michael ever needed any of the other syblings to shine! They both got used allot before they said NO MORE!! So Ms. Jackson... girl do your thang!!! And people lets not forget SHE is the TRUE student of her fameous brother!! Michael and Janet inspired each other!! And she looked up to him!! As for the fool who referred to Michael as a freak... I'll bet thats waht your townspeople say about you!! GET A LIFE LOSER!!! Michael Jackson is The KING and THE BEST!!!
