Janet Jackson changed up her act Saturday night at the Panorama Music Festival in Randall's Island, New York, by starting her set with a song that not many people know but has a deep message.
Janet hit the stage with "The Skin Game (Part 1)," the b side of a 30-year-old record. Before she started singing, the audience heard audio of reporters doing stories about white supremacists and terrorism. Then the names of black men killed by police -- unarmed black men -- appeared on the big screens next to the stage.
Janet did not disappoint ... singing a number of her hits from her catalog. There was definitely a message beyond just singing hits.
There was no doubt from anyone in the audience ... Janet stole the show.
