American singer Janet Jackson gave a thrilling comeback performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards which celebrated some of music’s biggest names on Sunday night.
The performance at the awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas was her first TV performance in nine years.
The five-minute performance saw Janet Jackson do a mash-up of some of her hits.
