I mean, this ain't shade to Janet but....... you can tell MAMA was trying to find a way to gain viewers since SM and YG are boycotting.

I honestly don't think they are using her for viewers lol(Thats my opinion though). I mean Sm and YG didn't attend MGA music awards and the show got +9 millions real time viewers when I watched it in V live and I didn't even stayed till the end. So I think as long as MAMA has BTS, Twice and WannaOne, they're going to do fine in views.

That does seem like a lot, but those are online views. Meaning international views. TV views in Korea are what matters most to them.

Ohh yeah you're kinda right, but at the same time MAMA is very international I feel like so I really don't think they care that much. But you do have a point.

Now Listen Janet is relevant no matter what decade it is but I feel like they should've gotten Camilia since her song Havana was so popular in Korea. I visited Korea during the summer and her song was everywhere just like Ed Sheeran's Shape of you was blowing up last year.

Nah I don't mean she's too old, look at bloody Tony Bennett. I just meant I hadn't heard from her in years, but then I don't actively follow chart music so, yeah.

TINA TURNER needed a KIDNEY transplant ; her husband donated one to her. So, her health is NOT so good. But, IF you want to throw around the word "LEGEND" in Global Pop Music ; TINA TURNER would come to mind for me.

I saw her in LA years ago (I'm from Southern Cali). She is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life. Like some alien, out of this world beauty. My little girl heart couldn't take it. I don't know how MAMA pulled this off but Janet is being inducted into the RocknRoll Hall of Fame next year and she's legendary. I hope the Korean people realize that this is a huge honor to have her there. Next year, get Cardi B though! LOLOL!

Janet was great in the 80s but she's a lot older now, can she really perform like she used to? Let's hope this doesn't turn into another Mariah Carey situation.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tina_Turner ; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gi_IGuKx4U

IF I wanted to 'showcase' a mostly 'played out' USA Black Music Artist at (Asian) MAMA Awards 2018, I would choose TINA TUNER. TINA TURNER is now Age 79, but who cares. All that TINA TURNER needs to do, is WALK around on stage, and LIP SYNCH the "THUNDERDOME" (1985 Movie) song! ... ;) ... (Trolling, but factual) ... And TINA TURNER is NOT a USA citizen anymore (she legally renounced that), and is instead a citizen of SWITZERLAND. Which, that TINA TUNER is NOT a USA citizen now, should play *WELL* with ASIANS in general ... ;)
Janet Jackson (Age 53) is NOBODY compared to TINA TURNER. Janet Jackson is the 'sister of MICHAEL JACKSON' ; and that ends it. Other than Janet Jackson 'accidentally' exposing her nude BREAST at the Year 2004 'Super Bowl' (USA Football Sport Event) ... ;) ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janet_Jackson

If the US industry can't get Tina out of her happy retirement with her younger Swiss man, the MAMAs could NEVER come up with enough money to do so.

If i were MAMA, i would invite Shawn Mendes instead of Janet Jackson. Its about hype anyway right and i think the millenial kids are their target to gain viewers and i doubt they know any of Janet's music. Unless Mnet is running out of money..... but JJ Lin is quite dope tho.

*** Begin Quoting ***
Janet Jackson was chosen by the (USA) National Football League and MTV to perform at the Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show in February 2004 ... (Jackson) performed (song) "Rock Your Body" alongside surprise guest Justin Timberlake. As Timberlake sang the lyric "I'm gonna have you naked by the end of this song", he tore open her costume, EXPOSING her right BREAST to 140 million (Global TV) viewers.
*** End Quoting ***
(Trolling) ... Janet Jackson has been 'saving' her *other* BREAST for the MAMA Awards 2018 !!! ... ;)

O no. Don´t get me wrong, I adore Janet Jackson, but - how should I put it? She´s a great performer, but singing live isn´t one of her greatest skills and KPop fans tend to put the bar very VERY high when it comes to performances since they are spoiled with almost flawless perfect performances. I´m not sure wether this might end in a great disappointment.....She´s just not the same Janet she was back during Rhythm Nation days. Let´s hope the best for everyone.

are you kidding? kpop performances are almost always lip synced

there are no perfect live kpop performances

if so they are rare and happen during concerts

she'll probably lip sync over a loud backing track like everyone else or she'll actually sing and blow most of these people out of the water

even at her age she can do a lot better than jungfool and that crap we heard when bts's backing track was turned off and they couldn't sing AT ALL

wrong mix = wrong career for bts

Rhythm Nation is probably generally considered as peak Janet Jackson but personally, I like the succeeding album, Janet, more. Anyway to your point, yeah, she's not the best as far as live performances go and she's kind of past her prime now (no intention meant to minimize her contribution to music) although I think people will be more enamored with the spectacle of her showing up more than anything.

funny how you bigblueagain try to act like someone else with this account, and seem like a american hating racist, while being a korean hating american yourself...that shows how miserable your life is and how desperate you are for some likes here...

and you can stop the act, you still werent able to explain, how you were always able to reply to wang sejungs comments with your bigblueagain account always a few seconds after the comment came out, if you werent the same person, thats still not possible
