Janet Jackson performing 'Control' at the 1987 American Music Awards

Amazing video of Janet Jackson performing 'Control' at the American Music Awards in 1987. Such a great dance and set up. Love the tune as well.  I'd love a Perseus or Cyril Hahn type to work their magic on it:

This is the original video which is also pretty sweet, featuring some nice trenchcoat / keytar action. It won a Soul Train Award for best R'n'B/rap video in 1988:

I posted a video of Prince accepting his AMAs in 1985, check it out here if you haven't seen it before. it's pretty amusing. Note the single rose he carries.



  1. That's awesome. I'm pretty sure I've seen you do some of those sweet leg moves. I was expecting her to rip off her clothes at some stage, as if a female popstar now would ever perform so fully clothed!

  2. Yeah she is was so slick back then, with no need to show ANY skin! she has some sweet threads and moves in the 'what have you done for me lately' video as well: http://youtu.be/r9uizdKZAGE
