Janet Jackson will celebrate Michael Jackson's legacy at The Music of Black Origin Awards which will be held on September 30.


Organizers for 2009 MOBO Awards have confirmed that Janet Jackson will make an appearance at the event as a part of Michael Jackson tribute. "Janet is a music icon in her own right and a previous MOBO presenter. We loved her past involvement with the show and MOBO will continue to support her music and champion her career," a spokesperson for the show told The Sunday Mail.

Furthermore, it is revealed that the tribute will have a positive, celebratory tone, rather than putting a dampener on the proceedings. "We hope it will be an opportunity to celebrate his legacy and show that his music lives on not only in the heart of his millions of fans worldwide but also in his music and in the music of his contemporaries," the spokesperson explained.

This year's The Music of Black Origin Awards will be conducted at Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, Scotland on September 30. This will be the first time the gala awards taking place outside London. Dance troupe Diversity who won 2009 "Britain's Got Talent" are billed as an opening act for the show. Celebrities who are expected to attend this event include Craig David, Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson, Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Akon, Lemar and JLS.
