Our girl Janet Jackson has just announced that she will hit the stage as a HEADLINER of this summer’s 2010 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana.
It will be the Nasty singer’s first full performance since 2008, and her first since the death of her brother Michael.
Awwww, I’m quite sure MJ will be smiling down on you, Janet!
Mary J. Blige and Alicia Keys have already been confirmed as the other headliners. Arrested Development, Estelle, Lalah Hathaway, LL Cool J, Mint Condition, Monica and Ruben Studdard are also on the bill.
Dancers, are you going to Essence this year?
