IT’S ABOUT TIME: Janet Jackson to Receive the 2018 Billboard Icon Award
Well, I wasn’t going to be tuning into the Billboard Music Awards this year, but this recent piece of news has changed my mind. This morning it was announced that music legend Janet Jackson will be the recipient of the 2018 Icon Award!
Since her musical debut in the 1980s, Janet has been one of the leading and well respected artists in music and even managed to launch a successful career in TV and film.
Along with receiving the honor, Jackson is also scheduled to deliver a highly-anticipated performance, which will be her first on television in nine years.
In her now 4 decade career (5 if you count her TV role on The Jackson Variety Hour in the 70s) Janet jas sold over 100 million records worldwide, and with singles such as Nasty, Rhythm Nation, That’s the Way Love Goes, Together Again and All for You; she holds the record for the most consecutive top-ten entries on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart by a female artist with 18.
The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will be held on Sunday, May 20 at 8 PM EST/7 CST on NBC live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Kelly Clarkson will host.
Janet follows Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion and Cher, who have all won in the past.
