Janet Jackson Delivers a Winning Performance!

Remember the feeling you had back in '95 when you first learned Michael Jordan was making his comeback to the NBA after concluding a minor league baseball career?

I don't know about you but I was mixed with both intrigue and excitement at the thought of #23 lacing up his kicks and returning to the basketball court to once again, dominate.

He was back on his stage doing what he was meant to do.

Well, a similar wave of emotions came over me on Saturday night when Janet Jackson took stage at the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts for her Number Ones: Up Close and Personal tour.

The five time Grammy winning artist returned for the first of two back-to-back shows and gave a Jordan like performance that featured classic songs like What Have You Done For Me Lately, Doesn’t Really Matter, Escapade, When I Think Of You and my personal favourite, Rhythm Nation.

If you've seen her perform live in the past, you definitely would have noticed a change. Much the same way Jordan didn’t jump as high as he did in the past or attack the rim with the same ferocity, the R&B-pop-dance diva's show was different.

The smaller more intimate venue really gave the 3,200 fans in attendance a chance to get up close and personal to the dance pop star and the crowd hung on to every note and giggle for the entire performance.

It was an awesome show and Janet's tribute to her brother Michael (Jackson) that featured several black and white photos from their childhood and snippets of their duet video, Scream, was a perfect way to conclude the evening.

Just like we've seen Jordan do on a nightly basis, MJ's little sister delivered in the clutch!
