It was a meet up of the titans Sunday night when Janet Jackson finished her 8th tour, State of the World in Atlanta when she brought Missy Elliott on stage for a surprise performance. They performed Janet’s track Burnitup that Missy’s featured on. Missy tweeted to Janet after the performance “You still AMAZE ME with your performances! You are 4ever LEGENDARY.” And the backstage pic she took for Twitter showed her in a $6,500 Giccu sequin-embellished bomber jacket… the very same that Mariah Carey’s been spotted in recently. Nice fit, Missy.

Anytime Missy is seen on stage it’s a treat as it’s now been a whopping 12 years since she’s released an album. She has done a few singles, all amazing in their own right but her full comeback is still highly anticipated. What won’t be anticipated is recognition for Missy’s work as she will be honored at Essence’s 2018 Women in Music celebration in New York City at the Highline Ballroom next month.

Glitzers, watch Missy’s surprise performance on Janet’s tour closing night below:
