Janet Jackson -- Taking it On the Road

5/28/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ Janet Jackson was so "blown away" by the positive reaction to her appearance on the "American Idol" finale that she's "seriously entertaining" a concert tour ... that could begin before the end of the year.


Janet was amazing on Wednesday's "Idol" -- performing "Again," "Nothing," and "Nasty."  We're told as of today a concert tour is now on the front burner.

Miss Jackson -- who has only toured once since 2002 (and a bulk of that tour was canceled) is also set to appear at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans on July 2.

The padding is called HIPS. AND AN ACTUAL BUTT. Don't be jealous. For a woman in her 40's I think she has the body that women younger than her would like to have.

Janet Jackson was great on Idol I was so impressed with her. I don't watch the show much it's so bad but she is a true incredible talent like Michael. Very few excellent performers these days. She's one of the best we have after passing of Michael Jackson. Love Prince also and wonder if the tribute at Wembley with Janet, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jackson family and especially PRINCE will really happen in June 2010? Does anyone know.? Hope it does and is televised worldwide honoring Michael....Prince is so great and HOTNESS exemplified.

come on, people, aren't you smart enough to know that Janet Jackson wasn't really singing live..she was prerecorded and uses autotune. I wouldn't pay for trash like that..the music industry thinks the public as stupid idiots who put hanna montana up there and make her sound good. It's a money thing. You're pretty stupid if you'll pay for that. Honor real singers like Mariah Carey who can sing, christina Agulara and other solid people. not these freaking biters. We've got fake asses, fake boobs, fake hair and fake singers. Be real to yourselves.Don't contribute to fake stuff..

There should be laws against anyone over 40 wearing tight clothes and/or showing too much skin. Nice hairdo though.

I've seen Janet in concert twice in the earlier years and she put on a great show. She'd have to do more body conditioning before she tours again - people would expect her dancing to be back up to par which it certainly isn't right now. I think she's quite capable, she's younger than Michael and he was dancing up a storm right until he passed away.
As for the lip syncing, I think it was more like 50/50 live and lip syncing. A whole lot of artists do it, always have, especially the large stage productions where there's lots of dancing, choreography, etc. It's just a matter of just how convincing they can be I guess.
And it's just my opinion, but I think Janet's hair is awesome; she's beautiful and she's got some bodacious curves going on with her extra weight still. "Baby got back"!!

who cares what she looks like?
she is a short dumpy gal
the hair is probably her real hair
lots of wigs, extensions etc were worn before
she can't sing
I thought it was very amateurish
if she would have sang like that at an audition for American Idol
they would say she has a weak breathy voice
lousy
and lip synching
and walked around while her dancers- who were great- worked their butts off
very so so average performance

Problem is that these stars (real talanted ones like Janet) do not know when they are NO LONGER 20years old! Fame is a crazy thing - there is a desparation to "maintain". Just try being age (and body!) appropraite - whats with the skimpy tight outfits looking like a fool with ass on the ground?!
